How old are you?

Some of us have their age indicated in their details. Others have their portrait as avatar (although others have anothor one's portrait ). I wonder what our ages are. What age groups are we in?

I'm older than most of my classics (however still wore diapers for most), and younger than one or two.

I grudgingly admit to having passed the big-five-oh, but I sure do not feel it and some say I don't act it either.

I'm older than all my SLRs, both of my Ms and most of my M and LTM mount lenses.

My S2 is older than I and a few lenses (S, LTM and a few Ms).

All my 4x5 stuff is older than I.

My wife is 5 yrs younger!

All in all, I am doing OK.

Oh, sorry, I wasn't here last year. I checked if such a poll was in the archives but didn't find anything.

But then again, some of us don't get a year older in one year Kim...

OK, 67

Some of my cameras are older than I am too! Hopefully all the film in the freezer is younger. We need to defrost the thing, and one never knows what will be found at the bottom.

My 'Child Bride' or "Trophy Wife' is five years younger than I am. Life's great!

That's allright. I'm too old to have a paddy but I'm old enough to get cranky.

My age is shown,and it's getting to be a little to heavy for comfort,but not too old to stop me from getting silly from time to time about accumulating more stuff!!

Tell me that's a good sign and not just a senior moment.

I am of the same age as my Rolleiflex 2.8D.

Yes, the age distribution is close to that of a Uniform distribution.
This shows that RFF members could be of any age between 20-60, with an average age of (20+60)/2=40.

Suddenly, I am older than the average! Statistics sometimes is not good ...

I'm glad to see pretty even distribution too.

Just for the record, I'm 35. Funny how that seemed old 15 years ago, but not so much anymore...

Over there to the left.

Only thing I own that is older than me is my 1964 John Deere 110 RF tractor.



Popstar, I remember when I was a kid and my first grade teacher asked us to figure
out how old we would be in the year 2000 I thought 35 was sooooo old and it
seemed so far away.....

Less than 4 months ago. Doesn't time fly when you are enjoying yourself. Maybe I am not a year older after all!

Yep, that must be the one. Let's see if this one fills up similarly. Should be so, I guess.

I'm slightly older than my two Barnack Leicas, at age 76. I don't like to recall my age, so it is not in my avatar.

I turned 53 on December 4, so I am the age/era of my Leica IIIF Red dial and Nikon S2 chrome dial. I would like to track down a Leica that was made the same day I was...

30, just turned last week. Which group does that put me in, 20-30, or 30-40? I think I'll take the second.

edit: December 4, for me, too, bobkonos! What are the odds!

Old Enough

My first 35mm rangefinder was a Certo Dollina II purchased by my old man in 1938 who taught me photography/darkroom skills. My first enlarger was made from a Speed Graphic 2 1/4 X 2 1/4 attached to a home made condenser fashioned by my grandfather. I can't remember not having a serious photographer in the family, but I do remember watching my prints emerge from under a ruby red at the age of eight.

I'm old enough to have *** pooed SLRs like digitals are *** pooed by some today.
I made the choice between a Nikon F and an M4 1967. I still have the M4 (which I traded 'up' from and M2-R). My first SLR worthy of keeping is a Canon digital. Go figure; I'm a slow learner who invests wisely.

I see a film revival kicked off a by a rangefinder movement. What's old is new again, and what takes a tad bit of skill to master gives the greatest amount of freedom, speed, control, and expression.

"December 4, for me, too, bobkonos! What are the odds!"

Cool! Glad to know another December 4 birthday person. I saw that a Steve Hoffman and I have the exact same birthday as evidenced by the announcement I saw on the RFF on December 4. So I'd say the odds are pretty good.

Birthdays fascinate me: it is the one thing you really cannot change.

Nice to see a crop of 20-30 year olds.

Most of my cameras are much younger than me (1965 manufacture date), all the RF's are. I do have a nice Burke & James 8X10" view camera my grandpa William C. Austin bought for group portraits for his commercial photo business in Brevard, NC. I never knew him, as he and my maternal grandmother Mildred were killed in a 1953 auto accident by a truck driver abusing Benzedrine. Still it's nice to use something he did, though I've not got too many good negatives out of it yet. It's hard to get reliable development of big color negatives.
