    I agree desertratt, I too dislike the kind of salespeople that this sort of company policy produces, I worked in camera stores for almost 25 years, and I preferred to have my staff paid a bonus on them collectively reaching a monthly and annual sales target, in fact it wasn't unusual on the last Saturday of the bonus period for the store to stay open until we had achieved our target because it made a big difference to our salary.

    I have but two on the list, AE-1 and F3, but I have 4 AE-1's and two F3's so I have six on the list. There shoulda been an APS and a 110 on there too. I've got more odd looks from my Pentax Auto 110 than anything else.
    In life you only get one great dog, one great car, and one great woman. Pet the dog. Drive the car. Make love to the woman. Don't mix them up.

    For odd but approving looks, nothing beats a TLR. I don't have a Rollei though one is on my "one day" list but my Yashicamat 124 suffices fine for the looks. And unlike the 110 you can readily get film for it, AND print to 16x20 from it with nearly zero visible grain, if so inclined.

    Uh-oh. Sounds like you got a knockoff. It's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I hope you didn't pay much.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    For everyone else a SWC would not be penis envy, quite the opposite. For you of course being very short would be a length improvement.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    If you want to make someone with an SWC feel inadequate, turn up with a 38/4.5 Biogon on an Alpa 12. If you want to make someone with a 38/4.5 Biogon on an Alpa 12 feel inadequate, turn up with a 38/4.5 Biogon on a Century Graphic.

    Of the list I have one. The Pentax 67. Just recently acquired, and going to shoot the first roll of film today.

    I've also got a couple of near misses. No Canon AE-1 , but I do have the A-1 and the AE-1 Program. I like the A-1 best of the two. Though it has developed, "the squeak". I've owned it since new. The AE-1 was a gift from a friend, who has "moved on" to a phone cam.

    I've also got a Rolleicord V, and a III, but no Rolleiflex.
