Lens creep = when there is unsufficient friction on the extending barrel of a zoom lens so that it sometimes zooms out (or in) under gravity alone. Most commonly this happens when the camera is being carried but may affect a lens in use if you are photographing at or near the vertical..

A lens creep is someone who has just spent a lot of money on a new DSLR with a perfectly good kit lens and before learning what the terms aperture and ISO mean rushes out to spend five hundred more dollars on lenses, in the belief this will make him/her a better photographer..

Alternative meaning: someone with more money than I have..


You can't be serious?..

Lens creep occurs when you have a long telephoto lens and you are shooting above or below you and the lens moves or changes focal length while you are shooting. In other words the lens is loose and it will not stay at the chosen focal lenght...

They also have a bad haircut, smell vaguely of ear wax, and they universally consider themselves 'candid photographers' even though all they ever shoot is teen aged girls at the beach.STOP Global Stasis! Change is good!.

Now that you've judged the quality of my typing, take a look at my photos..

Everyone, everywhere, has to do everything for a first time. There is no shame in failure, only in failure to try...
