You need therapy Chris Tongue

Paying a professional photographer for graduation portraits and getting rank amateur and costly results.

Hmmm.....I can relate to that having recently had a similar experience.

A friend advised me that when it came to the hiring of the mortar board and gown I paid the small subsidy and got the stuff foe a week instead of just the day, we then shot our own graduation pictures at our own leisure spaced out over a week, so a least we got a few decent pics Smile

Things that annoy me photographically mainly cover equipment. So ..........

I'd like a basic but high-end MFT camera without wi-fi, HDR, video, scenes, pano-stitching, and all the rubbish that most of us don't use. I'd like a dead easy-to-understand menu, top-knotch IQ and a great range of lenses that cater to my needs speed-wise, sharpness, and dof/bokey brilliance. And I'd like that camera, preferably a Panasonic, to be half the price of the models that include all the useless stuff we don't want or need.

They make basic mobile phones, so why not basic MFT cameras?

But most of all, crap pictures that get fab reviews and publicity. Envious, moi?! Grin

The gx7 should have a pro-mode. Which instantly hides any menus relating to non-serious stuff. You can avoid some of it by never turning the dial to the scene setting. I'd want to keep the wi-fi though, it's incredibly useful to use a tablet or phone as your camera screen even if you're nowhere near it.

Should be useful for macro/close-up.

PMSL at that one!! Grin Grin Grin None of my L lenses (well, okay, only the one) have ever done that ... I must be doing something wrong Wink

One thing that bugs me (not necessarily photographically, but creatively) is that I spend ages thinking of something I want to do, going through it all in my mind (style, lighting, poses, how I'd do it, how I'd post process it) ... and then look in the gallery and fine some other bugger's beaten me to it Sad It's like "What?! Am I broadcasting out loud or something!!?" Sad Sad Smile

It's well known that some Canon L lenses suck. Wink I had to Google to understand Malcolm's comment (honest) but I now know much more about him for doing so. Wink

True, and most times they've done it better than I could have anyway Grin

[Edit: if I mentioned Canon L lenses, and 'step-up' rings in the same sentence ... given Ade's amazing discovery ... would that be very wrong of me?! Wink]

I live near the South Coast, Summer last year I was walking on the beach and the BBMF Lancaster flew low right overhead travelling from Bournemouth to Shoreham airshows, no camera with me.Sad
Last Saturday, hoping for the same sort of thing to happen I watched and listened from my car for 3 hours at a seafront car park with camera and 70-300mm lens ready. First of all a Spitfire went over, far too high, then the Lancaster went past, far too far North. I was just about to pack up when the Vulcan flew past, very low but about 3 miles away out over the sea.
As I drove off I noticed a line of seagulls on a set of low posts, so I stopped, knelt down, focused on the birds and two cyclists rode between me and the birds, frightening them away. When I arrived home, just after I got out of my car, the 'Sally B' flew overhead, very low. Camera safely in my Backpack!GrinGrinGrin
I suppose I should have gone to one of the Air Displays!

That would be too easy - like shooting birds in an aviary.
