    In the general public's perception Hasselblad is probably a generic name for any professional looking camera because its the only one they've heard of.

    I was asked the ITAH question last weekend while actually shooting one. I think it's funny when I've been out shooting with my 8x10 Ansco and someone asks me if it's digital.

    Mostly I get people convinced my 18 year-old Zone VI is an antique.

    Hey -- it's gotten to the point that I'm just plain pleased if people know that there is another kind of camera.

    Someone asked me if my Hassey was a Dewalt once. That was funny.

    Yes, and it was. But mostly it's "does that camera use film?"

    I tell people my view cameras are antiques (even my Cambo Legend, which looks like it's pretty much out of the box), just because it saves me from having to explain why I'd bother to shoot large format to begin with.


    As to the Hassy, I bought mine last winter, and within a week of buying it two different people on the street asked me if it was a Hassy. And some kid asked me if it was a 16mm movie camera.

    My new policy is going to be to just answer "yes" to all such questions.

    At the last but one UK Gathering someone saw me winding on my C330 and asked if it was "an old movie camera"...
    The destination is important, but so is the journey
