    my guess would be if this is true, dont plug your DSLR into your computer

    And keep a carefull eye on your wallet

    There is no anti-virus for B3 yet. It is like the Flu. Get it and slowly recover

    There is a cure.

    Specialisation instead of general shooting will cure it.

    depends on what you specialise in I guess. Some areas of specialisation requires big mama lenses and costs 5digits...

    Or voyeurism.

    Well this virus can only be cured by buying expensive lens like L or AF-S or VR. Buy cheep lens and the DLSR is not fully cured, got relapse of Bł symptoms.

    A very interesting thread indeed!

    So, what 'virus' are we talking about now? The ('I heard from xxx') virus (Type I, if it exist) that infects DSLR or the BBB/SSS virus (Type II) that infects DSLR (users)? Sounds to me like they are both equally 'lethal'!

    One of the best cure (as suggested earlier) is to quit photography (can be easily achieved) or the other way is to ... *ahem* ... quit visiting Clubsnap! (it's a fertile breeding ground for viruses, especially the Type II ones, don't you think so?)! Of course, do expect some really serious withdrawal symptoms ..... *ouch*

    Since we are on the topic of virus, let me introduce Type III ..... B(roke)B(roke)B(roke), S(top)S(top)S(top)

    This is a story related buy "Tio Buyrus"
    When I shoot insects (macro) I saw beautiful birds and my Macro lens cannot reach. Den I buy Birding lens and start shooting birds. 1 day I got lost in the jungle and as the sky gets darker, i saw the beautiful moon. Too bad, my birding lens cant really get the detail of the moon. so I started buying telescope and shoot moon. Den the tripod and body becomes outclassed so I buy new tripods and body.

    After a while, I have new dry cabinets to put all the stuff in.

    Thats how bad the BBB virus can attack. Even if I stop browsing the B&S section I still cant stop the Virus.

    Disclaimer: This is purely a friction story. if there is any similarity to anyone, it was not intentional.

    This strain of BBB virus is real.

    I think my dslr is infected too. All my photos now are watermarked with a big $ across them.

    Plenty of vitamin M should be able to cure this BBB virus.

    My DSLR is made by Apple, so it's immune to viruses.
