    That's interesting, Neal. I wasn't previously aware that Nikon used Irish Springs behind the pressure plates. Now I know.

    There is no way a woman would produce either of these crap cameras. Definately a man. We men are notorious for getting a job done in a very hurried and selfish manner then rolling over and going to sleep....But I digress.

    David,
    Obviously you are compensating by whipping that big thing out in public looking like a terrorist taking close ups of some future target. Elsa is alone in her studio with her big one.

    So, I think the "greats" were true to their visions, once their visions no longer sucked. Ralph Barker 12/2004

    As a small-handed woman, comfort is one of the reasons I love my Pentax PZ1P - it fits my hands perfectly. So does the 645N. I can reach all the controls on both without moving my hands at all, too.
    Every Nikon I've used feels like a brick and my wrist hurts for days after. I always have to move my hands around to find the multiple buttons I have to push while twisting something else.
    I do agree about the Hassie, but I'm keeping mine 'cause of quality - I just suffer the bulk.

    Ha! I was wondering if anyone would remember that reference... at least without my phony Irish brogue.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Well, in this case, it may be a question of Envy, rather than Compensation...


    Hmmmm... that Freud bloke has a lot to answer for...

    Another riddle Freud's mind was struggling with:

    "Was will die Photographin?"
    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    Input from a scrawny female with small palms and long fingers:

    I don't notice either Nikon or Canon being unwieldy at all. Then again, I shoot my Bronica a-plenty, have used Hasseys with no problem, and am gradually training myself to use my Speed Graphic without a tripod. I have no issues with cameras being too large for my hands, but do sometimes have to get used to the weight of bigger-than-average cams. I'm getting some great arm and shoulder muscles from the Graphic.

    If I had to carry a pink camera, I'd go back to painting.

    Geez, and I would have sworn that was Shakespeare... no, maybe it was Richard Nixon.
