Ok.. was at a gymnastic meet today and I was lucky enough to capture a picture of the on-site commerical photographer chimping! He was too far away to actually hear the OOOHH OOHHS!

I still don't see what's wrong with doing that. If you shoot a bunch of pictures and don't look at them until later, you're missing out on one of the big benefits of digital over film.

it's great if you are checking your comp., shutter speed, exposer, timeing, etc. (i do it all the time)

BUT, if you do it just to "show off", during the event, not at half time or when ever, you CAN miss photos (trust me, i have done it before ops: )
