    Just like Fundee put it; excluding the days/time which I did not press the shutter-button of a loaded camera, I say...less than 1 week? So practically still in the womb!

    Wah, that's similar to mine. I started B&W in Sec. 2, stopped for quite a long while when I got out of school, only shooting when I travel. Restarted in 2000 when I bought a Coolpix 950 in end 1999.

    Film?
    Whats that?

    Btw, can anyone point me to something that is roughly a tutorial of what does 1xxmm zoom lens, blah blah mean? I keep referring to zoom as in times, eg 5X, but pros use a number millimeters?

    Zoom power in times, e.g. 5x is meaningless. It just means that the focal length at the longest end is 5 times the focal length of the shortest end. So, a 4x zoom can be 35-140mm or 100-400mm. 10x zoom can be like 35-350mm, 50-500mm, etc. No meaning at all. A 10x zoom does not mean it magnifies the subject 10 times.

    Using focal length in millimeters makes much more sense.

    Likewise, don't read too much into how long someone has been into photography, just based on a number of years. A lot also depends on how productively that time has been spent.

    Right, for me, quite a bit of my years in photography is actually dormant.

    35-140mm = 140/35 = 4 x zoom

    100-400mm = 400/100 = 4 x zoom


    so both also 4 x zoom but the 2nd one will have greater zoom range due to 400mm ...

    so how many times is 14-140mm ?
    10 x times ? wow ! .. but only 140mm max .. ha !

    Hi Zoomer,

    Those are the focal length of the lenses. A range like 100-400mm means a lens can change it's focal length continuously anywhere from 100mm to 400mm (and it's called a zoom lens). With a same object, the shorter focal length lenses will make the image looks smaller while the longer focal length lenses will make it looks larger. Lenses with shorter focal length will also allow more scene to be included in the picture (wider view angle, hence the name "wide angle lens"). The lens that reproduces what the human eyes see is around 50mm.

    The above is just a very brief introduction. For more information please see this tutorial on nikon-image. Happy reading.
