    I'm just happy that computers now say "Type in password" its so easy to remember and even if you forget they always remind you its "password".

    I’m with Ross - I don’t do old.
    The number is 75 - means nothing.
    Cheers Lyn.

    I've got no choice ...

    I look about 50 something (causes problems with my Category A disabled sticker!).

    Actually early 70s.

    Usually feel about 102 ...

    More 'invisible' health problems than I care to enumerate. Now it appears that I need a hip replacement ...

    Can't complain. I should have died at around 7 months old ... .
    Regards, john

    Interesting results, I bought my first SLR (I must be getting Alzheimers because I can't remember the name, pretty sure it was Russian?) when I was 18 and I suspect a lot of us got into photography early and bought bodies and lenses when we got our first jobs and had some surplus $$$ to spare.

    With the iPhone generation, I wonder how enticing a ILC is to that generation now?

    I think more photos get taken everyday now than ever before, but not via what we deem the gear that we are used to?

    Probably just being an old fuddy duddy but looks like I'm in great company

    My first SLR like yours I suspect was a Zenit. A great camera to learn the photographic basics with. And then in the end it fell apart. It served it's propose though.

    Yes, a Zenit. It eventually got difficult to wind the film and started a lot of internal grinding.

    Next I had a Praktica, then a Konica and my last film camera was a Canon AE1-Program.

    Just squeezed into the 31-40 category, which I couldn't help but notice was the youngest category with any votes. Don't I feel young?!

    Until next year when I have to tick the 41+ box.

    Thankfully, though, I don't think too much has changed since my 20's... I don't think? Maybe a bit less hair.

    Trust me - 40 is young. It's all downhill from there, so wave goodbye to "young" soon and join us on the slippery slope to oblivion!

    Of course we older ones have that elusive quality known as "wisdom" ....... that quality which we claim as a replacement for good looks, clean skin and healthy bodies.

    24 for those wondering or 24 with the body of a 50 year old i make that much noise.

    also just a tip: never use password as your password since if you do and someone gets ahold of your email its the first thing they try aswell as qwerty or 123456789 also some fun statistics on that 3 MILLION people used password, 12345 was 23.2 MILLION and 123456789 was 7.7 MILLION

    I just noticed someone picked the 21-30 box since my post. Now, I feel ancient.

    57 but my hair's been grey since my 20's so when people from my past catch up with me they tell me I've hardly changed. Except that I was 10 stone wringing wet back then. A bit more padding these days. Ah well, another beer will help me forget about that.
