It happens more and more often during photographing various events that someone is disturbed by the clicking sound of a DSLR camera and people ask photographers to turn off the sound. The photographer often just blinks not finding the words to reply. Clicking sound is not just an effect with a DSLR camera just like with mobile phones and compact cameras. It is an integral part of the function. Many photographers however has no clue about even DSLR cameras can be silenced. More than that it is very much advised in certain situations. If it is not possible than even more routine and knowledge is required to avoid disturbing others. And no, simple because you “have to” take photos doesn’t allow you to disturb others.

Maybe I should’t need to be mentioned, yet it needs as more and more people are unexplainably devoted to use a fisheye lens. This can be sene not only in the images of GoPro and other action cameras (where it almost cannot be avoided) or the use of snap on lenses, but in everyday photo stories line up a growing number of fisheye shots – often without any reason.
