    He probably thought you had a speech impediment, I have been using Mamiya gear for a long time, and I know the reaction.

    I think if anyone ever asks me the question again, I'll paraphrase Mae West and say "no, just pleased to see you".

    "Let me see it"
    "Can I see the picture, on no of course I can't its not digital is it?"
    "Good to see somone using a film camera!" "Would you like a press release"
    A 15 year old chain smoker I met in Clifton (Bristol, UK) was telling me how when she made prints she "didn't dilute the chems!!" She was so posh
    "oh your shooting XP2 do you proccess it in C41 or normal B&W chems"
    "Waaaahhh TAKE OUR PICTURE!!!!!"

    I would say that you have a brilliant technician there who should and will learn everything about film. Her knowledge will serve her well in both analogue and digital fields.

    New co-op art gallery opening here on Moloka'i, Linhof Tech V 4x5" over my shoulder, sure enough-- "Is that a Hasselblad?" So I explained that it was like a Speed Graphic with a few more features (he seemed old enough to know what a Speed Graphic was), and the next question, "Can you get a digital back on that? That would be neat wouldn't it?"

    About 2 years ago in Bryce Canyon, I had just taken a picture with my Pentacon 6TL with my 30mm Arsat, when a young woman walked up to me and said "what a nice Pentacon! is that the 30mm Ukrainian lens?" Turns out she was from the Czech Republic.

    In fairness to the questioner, it was an ARAX, so the mistake was pretty easy to make. I've also been asked "is that a Leica?" while carrying Canon rangefinders, Voigtlander Bessas, Yashicas, Zorkis, Feds, Kiev 4as and even an Argus or two. I was somewhat more impressed when someone asked if the Argus C-44 was a Contax, as at least he showed enough knowledge to have noticed the focusing wheel. And usually when someone asks if that is a Speed Graphic the answer is yes, unless it is a B&J Press instead.

    On the other hand, about a year ago I was out taking pictures in the Santa Monica mts of Southern CA with my Arax MLU 88CM and 45mm PC Hartblei lens. A stroller walked up and asked "is that an antique camera?" I told him no - it was a new Ukrainian camera. He responded "Why don't you get a digital camera." I responded that I prefer film to digital - that baffled him.
