So, in the days when people used film (remember that stuff??), and took a Polaroid to make sure things were just right before taking the final picture, were they "chimping"? :-)))))

While I trust the matrix metering on my D100 for general exposure, I still like to check high contrast subjects on the LCD for burn-out.

I think the one important detail that you guys are missing, according to the video, is you have to make the chimp sounds, OOOHH OHHH OOOOOH, while you're reviewing and showing the lcd display to who ever is next to, there by distracting them too!

For those of you who are still unsure whether you chimp or not... I managed to capture an example today at a gymnastics meet...

I am surprised that no one has pointed this out.

(yes, this doesn't really qualify as "Chimping" but to the untrained eye it might be mistaken.) My camera displays a histogram of the exposure for 2 seconds after the shot on the LCD. So I occasionally check it to make sure I haven't really completely blown something. It's just a glance down, but it's still looking at the results.

As a good form of chimping, I was at a national wildlife refuge this summer and came across a woman being pushed around in a wheelchair. Unfortunately, the reeds had overgrown and they couldn't see much. So I showed her some of my pictures. Seemed to make her happy.

Hey I often see our sports reporter for the local rag "chimping" and the great thing is that he is nice enough the show some of the mums at sports events the photos he has taken if he has time. thank god this photographer has not got his head up his arse believing in his own brillience like some do.

Reviewing images in the viewfinder needs a better name. There's no reason not to make sure that everything is working properly, just as you check the "image counter" to make sure you're not about to run out.

There is a reason why the camera manufacturers give us these tools. Nothing negative about using them.

I am not a photographer, so it's ok if I do it. :lol: Recently I was out visiting some places during my friend's vacation and she took a picture of me looking at the pictures in my digital camera. Anyway, I look at the LCD after every picture to see if it is ok. That's why the camera displays the picture for a few seconds, isn't it?
