Do You Have It?
category: Photographers • 1 min read
3 photographers, 3 cameras, and 3 ‘chimpers’:
- An iPhone
- A Canon 70D
- A Sony Point and Shoot
The three of them are ‘chimping’ at the same time. Chimping is checking every photo on the camera display immediately after taking the photo.
I almost never chimp because:
- I can’t chimp and look at what I’m doing.
- Chimping kills the battery.
- I Miss a lot of what’s happening around.
I chimp when I set the flash and I also chimp for the first few photos when using flash so I can get a good idea of what it’s going to look like. Then, it’s time to make the ‘real photos’.
