I'm sure many of you would have thought about something related to photography in the past and later, realized that how stupid it was to have had that kind of thinking. Can we hear some?

I'll start:

The first time I got myself my current D70, I felt weird looking at the image ratio of 3:2 equivalent to film. Since my first digital camera was a Coolpix 5700 and I shoot mainly on a 3:4 ratio image, I had always though that all digital cameras have this image ratio (though CP5700 does have its 3:2 ratio which I never used). Now I looked back n realized how dumb I was.

No lah, there are many other formats that do not have the 3:2 aspect ratio, like X-pan, medium and large formats. It's just a matter of getting used to it.

For me, I thought a very important criteria in buying a zoom lens is the zoom ratio...then I realised that is the least important as too large a zoom ratio means a higher chance of image degradation.

I once thought photography was all about light
but then I realised that photography is much more complicated than just light

I thought that if my photo is not good enough, I'm not close enough.. but I learned that for 50mm or less, it becomes worst.

When I was a kid, looking at those landscape calendars, I was much amazed like how the waterfalls in the foreign lands look so serene and the water flows so smooth.

Only years later (in fact, less than 2 years ago) that I realized that was only some shoots using tripod and slow shutter speed. :bsmilie:
