    Default Photo A by camera B

    Starting this thread out of curiosity. Why is it nowdays, we see lots of photo posting with titles indicating what camera (or sometimes lens) was used to take it? For example ... 'Sentosa pics with Nikon D123' ...

    Flame me if you want to ... but I'm just curious ... is there such a need?

    why not?

    I'm looking at buying the D70 and have compared many pics of 300D against D70 before making up my mind to it. Not to say that D70 produced better pics by looking at it but at least I know the D70 with kit lens does produce decent pics.

    It's just additional knowledge for me. It's just like posting the exif details for others to learn about the settings to create a certain scene. Those who needs it will value them. Those who doesn't need it ignores it.

    ok ok don't get me wrong. we are not debating about 'why yes' or 'why not' ...

    agree that exif info are good, especially for people like me who is learning. but what i am curious is ... why need to specify the camera model/lens model on the title. why not specify in the thread itself (together with the exif info etc)?

    curious lor ...

    oh.. kekek well maybe they just want people to know their set up.
    If I posted a thread saying "Star Trails with Canon A200" or "Infrared with Poloroid" maybe people will be attracted to look at it.

    If I had an L lens and took great pictures with it I will also post it in the topic! ahhaah typical sg show off?

    Next time they should type this under their pictures :

    Camera used = Nikon D2H
    Lens = Nikkor 50mm f1.8D
    Filtered by = B+W UV 52mm filter
    Supported by = Gitzo tripod with Gitzo ballhead
    Contained by = Domke F2 Sand colored canvas
    Blower used = A*F swiss made blower (blue) + lens pen

    So tat the whole world knows what he/she is using (isn't that the intention planned??)!

    Alamak, how can you forget to list down the Rodenstock lint free lens cleaning cloth?

    On a less serious note, I do find the list useful esp when a comment or experience is posted. Without knowing what exactly the equipment was used, the post can be less interesting as well as less informative.

    Maybe they are anticipating comments/questions on what equipment used. So they offer the information in the title, which cuts down on the needless posting and thus keeping the page reloading speed respectable.

    Just a theory. Heh.
