Thread: Izzit true that using AF = noob?

    Dude... Just shoot as you please, AF or manual focus... People are entitled to their opinions.. Or at least they think they are... If you shoot in AF, then so be it. I shoot in AF too. The only time I switch to manual is when I use AI-S lenses... and the occassional macro.

    I believe a lot of people out that rely on AF, including professionals. Just imagine shooting a bird or F1 car zooming by you without AF...

    So your friend has expressed his view... You can tell him mine... (Our, judging from the posts above, our views)

    Your friend is so frigging rich, he doesn't use what he pay for.
    We mostly do. Otherwise your friend must be really fast at manual too. He be my master.

    the parallel to the AF=noob is "u are not a photographer until you are using a leica"...

    like i said, hang around CS long enough and you will see all sorts of weird photography machoisms...

    i'm just waiting for the day that some chest-thumping photographic 'purist' to declare that 'you are not a photographer until you use a pinhole camera and develop your own negatives with your urine' kind of comment...

    what u think about this statement?
    what does he mean by "normal" digital camera?

    maybe your friend can't afford to get a DSLR so this is his way of discouraging you so that he dun feel inferior.
