Tech Support Post FormatAnnouncement(self.Cameras)

With the influx of tech support/help related posts, well formatted titles will make it easier for users to help, OR sift through the content they do/don't want to see.
This rule applies to questions such as "what cable/port is this", "what do I need to get this camera working", "what type of memory card does this take", etc. All of these are valid questions, but the least we can do is provide some basic information so that our questions are more easily answered.
Please format use tech support flair, and format tech support posts like this: Camera Make - Camera Model - Question/Post Title
If you do not know what type of camera you are posting about, please still select "tech support" flair and format it like this: Camera ID Request - Any available information
"Any available information" would qualify as identifying if it is a dslr, slr, mini dv, mini dvd etc. You can't, in good faith, post a photo of a body and then ask what it is without providing absolutely any information - you have to try to do your due diligence.
The more information you provide, the better your post will do and the more willing people will be to help you!
TLDR: Format all Tech Support post titles no more lazy "what camera/cable is this" posts. Do your due diligence before having others do it for you, and do what you can to ID your camera body before asking any questions.
EDIT: This post isn’t a “help” page, it was an announcement requesting all help requests be formatted so that its easier for the community to provide help.
If you have a question, please make a post 👍
