I can use this term because I'm one of them.

Yes, I agree: There is a potential here to develop a really nice bell curve, by extending the age range in both directions and using smaller age intervals. It seems several of us started shooting earlier than age ten! I got my first box camera around age 7 or 8.

I guess I could start another survey. Or maybe Raid will.

Oh. I listen to Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Beethoven (etc.)
May the light be with you.

I am 74 (and started shooting at 8 with a Bencini Comet II)
Now I guess I cannot aspire to the consolation to be the dean here
Who is the eldest?

I'm old enough to have been born in East Germany. Though only for about 3 years.

The 56 to 70 group is strongly represented which doesn't surprise me. The under 25s are a bit sparse ... a lot of them were claimed by Instagram etc a long time ago!
