I love to take images of people, my bugbear is to approach a person for a shot particularly when i am alone with a dslr and there are a lot of onlookers around me, and the person refuse me for the shot...

I often take the help of my driver or guide in this regard when i am on a tour, but the most difficult time is when i am shooting in our own town or in a nearby village...

The little red button on my digital cameras that activates the video. Especially the one on my TZ80 which is 7mm from the shutter release!

The weight of my equipment. I will replace with lighter kit soon.

A badly designed and placed on/off switch which makes it far too easy to unknowingly turn the camera on, especially when putting it back into camera bag...

All of my own inadequacies - health, patience, laziness.

I heartily concur, both my Panasonic and Olympus suffer from this + the switch is indented which exacerbates
the problem.

I am seriously thinking of pinching a couple of SHMBO's glass topped sewing pins, drilling the button and glueing the cut of pin in place. Only the thought of guarantees makes me pause

I cant seem to find anyone to repair my Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 Camera. It was a great wee camera for trips without lugging my Canon EOS 1200D. It lens sticks open and i dont want to put in landfill!

Camera manufacturers who screw for the tripod quick release plate so near the battery door that to change batteries you have to unscrew the plate

Probably would be cheaper to buy a used one from Ebay

Mini sites for black and also yellow wheelie bins (big ones) dotted around Charente for the collection of our yellow and black sacs of rubbish.....no thought given to what they would become as dumping points over time.....except in Frances official most beautiful villages that is!

Usually itís the weather and weather forecasters but with gear itís always AF acquisition and tracking, off the field itís photo judges, with manufacturers itís new mirrorless mounts not fitting OVF DDLRs, despite all that I always travel hopefully
