v.— «I saw a reference to “chimping” in regards to [sports] photography and how a digital camera with an LCD screen can make it easier, probably for instant review.

Probably like how if you put enough chimps in a room with typewriters they will eventually write War and Peace, and if you do enough blind shots you’ll get one.» —“What is “chimping”?” by Alan Marks Usenet: Dec. 10, 2000.
