Just curious when you guys bring out your camera?

1) only when you confirm need to use them (eg photoshoot outing, wedding photoshoot, events, etc).

2) daily - you never know when there is photographic opportunities!

3) when you EXPECT to use them (predict that there will maybe chances or opportunities)

Only on days that I confirm have a shoot. Events or wad.
Once camera bring out, must shoot something otherwise like I wasted the whole day.

The rest of the days, I rely on my sucky HP cam.

Only bring it out when there's a use for it.

PS: I've heard of someone who keeps one whole backup set of camera gear complete with flash setup in the boot of his car...:bsmilie: :bsmilie: :bsmilie:

Maybe, that's a disposable gear. Otherwise, the heat would create havoc to the light seals, rubber and other parts. Any film would get damaged faster as well.

Not trying to scare you guys, but if u bring yr cameras out everyday or very often, then u are subjecting yr cameras to extensive heat, moisture, dust, chemicals, all these are not good for cameras and equipments.

We bring our cameras out everyday so that we don't have to explain to wives why we're late for dinner because of pubs, newbie models, shopping for new camera equipments etc etc.

Photography is one of the best excuses in many happy marriages. :bsmilie:

I'll bring out only when I planned to shoot, other than that too cumbersome to bring around.

the problem is... even if bring out, do you guys actually shoot?

i'm not motivated, or just simply shy to take out my camera even if i have it with me... unless there are kakis with me... and when i wanna shoot a girl, if she suddenly look my direction, my barrel will swerve to shoot building..
