    So not using thumbnails isn't the main problem for slow speeds of some users, it's using a another photo hoster (Flikr for instance), that uploads at higher resolution.

    Does everybody have that? :)

    It's not about us, Jack. :) Some posters think by uploading a photo -not a thumbnail, you're making their life difficult. It's more the free photo hosting sites used that is slowing down their devices.

    We live on a fiber optics line with 1 gig upload speed but some on SBO are on dial up or weak cellular.

    Like Kermit, who's still in the 20th century.

    Yep. I now have indoor plumbing with a flush toilet, a television, electric lights and no longer have to climb the pole to make a phone call.

    I’m fairly sure you made it to the 21st Century. I know I did.

    I never do, and do not want to think of file sizes. Good programming should take care of that, and it usually does.

    Tom and agprice22 have this right. Don't give it a second thought unless you're linking to a 3rd party hosting site, then you may want to consider if the image is 4000 pixels wide and 12 megs. :)

    If you need me I'll be in 1971 brushing up on my morse code.

    I still use Morse Code, and I still use Film. Makes me antiquated, I guess.

    I would use film but the convenience of digital, the lack of available processing, and limited source of 35mm film has put my Nikon on the shelf.

    I really liked that camera.

    Trying to find anything other than crappy 400-ASA has become impossible except online. My old Minolta has also been relegated to a shelf. Luckily all my old Minolta AF lenses still work with the Sony Alpha I picked up.

    Pretty sure that in SoCal it makes you a hipster. :)

    If you use the ISO400 film, you can compensate by using a ND4 (-2 stops) Neutral Density filter. You will be shooting with ISO100 aperture/shutter speed. This does not account for the grain size though. ND8 would be -3 stops and ND16 would be -4 stops. I carry a kit of ND filters just for that reason. I even use them on my DSLR.

    The grain in 400 still stinks. I still miss Agfa 100.

    My mother dug a bag full of camera equipment out of her closet the other day and got very excited about the polaroid camera she found. She was always the family chronicler so there were lots of lenses and filters and all things 35mm in the bags.

    If I had to give up digital photography and go back to 35mm film,...I'd give up shooting. :)

    By the way, Canon has decided to discontinue the EOS-1V, their top of the line film camera. Plus, Fuji has also decided to discontinue their line of Black and White film.

    As far as I know, Nikon is still making the F6, their top of the line film camera.

    I miss my film camera, and using film, and all that came with it. Just like I miss all my vinyl albums. Using each involved a sort of ritual, that was somehow therapeutic. I guess the boat occupies that role now, but still...
