Default Call for action: For one day make your DSLR a SLR

Lets try to go back to the old days when there was only a SLR:

For one day:
  • Put on your DSLR a 50mm lens (preferably MF)
  • Shoot with manual exposure
  • Shoot with manual focus
  • Set ISO max 400
  • No chimping
  • Make at most 36 exposures
  • No deletes allowed
  • Minimal (crop/level) postprocessing is allowed
Post your images (a contact sheet + one or two of the finest shots separate) here.

I see this is slipping down the page, and I want to participate (eventually) so I'm bumping it up. I don't actually have a 50mm prime. What is the cropped sensor equivalent for my Rebel? I'll set the little zoom to that, put the whole deal on manual (manual focus on that little zoom is a pain) and get out shooting one day soon(ish).

No chimping, that will be hard. Could tape something over the lcd I suppose.

Doesn't your DSLR have an option to turn the LCD image preview off?

So, is chimping actually viewing the image on the LCD after it's taken?

I always thought so. Lots of posts about pro sports shooters doing it and people making fun of them.
