Photography Makes an Appearance on Jeopardy

“Photography” was featured as a category on last night’s episode of Jeopardy. Here are the 5 questions that were asked. If you consider yourself a photography buff, see if you can answer all of them (answers at the end).

Here are the answers: memory cards, silver, Louis Daguerre, filter, oxygen.

So, how many did you get right?

  • JF Machado

    Couldn’t remember Daguerre, but the other ones are accessible.
    (Oh dear, I’m a gearhead)

  • Bruce Denis

    Darn it, you got them all wrong. You should phrase your response as a question.

  • Ross Ching

    That first one was so easy I was thinking of a more complicated answer.

  • Jeannine Green Brewer

    I said joseph niepce instead of Daguerre

  • Rod

    Didn’t know the flashbulb thing but the others were pretty easy!

  • careybook

    4 out of 5. Gasses are always my downfall as my wife will tell you.

  • pilot371

    4 out of 5 – gases got me

  • Matt

    Got ‘em all except the oxygen. I was speculating argon, oh well. I still have some flashbulbs, too, they are pretty cool.

  • Zavera Farid

    yeah no clue about the 4!

  • Lisa

    3 of 5 – I chose Niepce instead of Daguerre and hydrogen instead of oxygen.

  • Josh

    i thought argon over oxygen, but 4/5, quite pleased.

  • Diarmaid O Connor

    I said cyanide instead of oxygen – never know what those crazy cats in the 30s though was safe!
