    Sorry I arrived late to this thread.

    About the comment above, about a hundred years ago, a Spanish writter, Miguel de Unamuno said this:

    When you first time meet a person, don't ask him where he is from. If he is from Bilbao, he will tell you. If not, don't embarras him.

    By the way, Miguel de Unamuno was born in Bilbao.

    To paraphrase Mae West "Is that a Hasselblad, or are you just pleased to see me?

    "that's a big zoom you've got there"...

    I have 2 Mamiya TLR bodies and a full set of lenses and 2 prism finders that all fit int a single case that I travel with. I often get asked if it is movie equipment. I have always assumed that it is because of the 2 lenses on each lensboad and the fact that I keep a collapsable hood on each of the taking lenses makes it look like one of the old turret mounted movie camera lenses. But that doesn't help explain the Hasselblad...

    I was out shooting with the Bronica s2a a few weekends ago and got asked the "is that a Hasselblad" question... and I immediately thought of this thread and cheerfully replied, "No, just a cheap Japanese imitation..."

    I was photographing a perfect sunset in Crete with my little Contax T2. Some guy yelled at me to get out of the way because he was sitting further back photographing the sunset with his video camera and point & crap digital.

    I was angered by this novice and shouted back I own a Hasselblad you know!

    Yes, with a Bronica SQ-A - from a police officer who kind of freaked me out when he pulled up behind me.

    What is a "vitamin cottage"? A pharmacy perhaps?
