    I've had my Hass SWC every concieveable place over the past 26 years. I was never asked if it was, but, yesterday 3 seperate people asked or said "nice SWC".
    Location? a vintage motorcycle street show.
    Unbelieveable.

    its funny, a really old lady asked me in the subway once. and it was a rollaiflex. haha.

    my m6 is often confused with a toy and my hasselblad have so far only been reqognized by older japanese men. And they ALLWAYS coment it. seems the 60'-70's most popular camera over here must have been hasselblad..

    When people ask what I'm shooting with, and if they'll put up with a bit of techno-geek-babble, I love telling people how many things a film camera can do a digital can't, and especially the things a LF can .... I do admit digital has a place, but they can tell where my heart is.

    When the nice security man at Frankfurt airport made me unpack my hasselblad he thought it was a movie camera! Oh well.

    My neighbors mother...
    My first day going back home with my Tachihara.
    "Is that a Hasselblad?"
    Even after she's seen my Bronica SQ-Ai on many repeated occasions...
    You'd think if she were to think one of those was a 'blad it'd atleast be the 6x6...
    I guess the Tachi is a hell of a lot more beautiful than the Broni though.

    One time walking around in the city with a Hasselblad I overheard someone nearby say to his friend: "That's the Mamiya I want to get!"

    I've officially been asked if my Speed Graphic was a Hasselblad! I'm quite proud of myself, even if they did correct themselves before I could...
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    Melbourne Airport ... carrying around a somewhat heavy 16mm Bolex (which has Hasselblad-esque styling) I was asked "does it actually work????" ...

    I am seriously considering not getting a carnet for it next time I travel with it for work.
    Cleared the bowel problem, working on the consonants...

    I've been asked several times how many megapixels my Minox is.
