That's a new one on me, but hey before I joined here, I didn't know the blurry bits were called bokeh.

Chimpin' ain't easy!

The Associated Press (AP) was one of the first news organizations to get their photojournalists digital cameras. Other photogs called the AP people apes. The AP photographers would always look at their screens after they shot a picture with their new digital cameras, so the other photographers (who were still shooting film) coined the term chimping, since mainly the AP people were doing it.
Thanks! That's a better explanation that what I imagined

Notice the 'posture'?

Thanks for the reply Steve, no, I was in the middle of an airfield photographing an airshow! But I noticed the screen would black out when it happened, suggesting an electrical issue.

May I suggest that being in the middle of an airfield is exactly the place where you can get some of the most extreme electrical interference, especially if it was a military one. Radars, radio transmitters, ILS transmitters and such things can cause some rather bad problems with electronics. The actual runway and taxiways are normally kept quite 'clean' in that respect but anywhere that airplanes don't go could be a rather nasty place for electronics - sometimes even for people but those places would usually be cordoned off.

You may be totally correct as it hasn't happened since! The strange thing is though that my K200d worked fine and nobody else complained.

Time will tell!

Thanks.

My wife's expensive hearing aids go bonkers every few seconds (radar) when we drive next to a nearby airfield.
