    I have my blad in my lab sometimes and theres never a day with it sitting in the lab that clients don't go OOO!!! is that a blad?
    I once had a man come up to me in the street i cant remember if it was with my Blad or my Linhof but he came up and said to me why are you using that old junk! my camera produces a far better result and you can see what you have shot immediately for which he proceeded to show me his 3.1 megapixel point and shoot. I was deeply horrofied.

    I would have asked him the same question and showed him my camera phone that also plays music and has GPS.

    I had my 501CM with a PM90 finder on a tripod in front of a very nice stump I'd found. A young fellow walked up to me sporting a
    small video camera and asked "That isn't a video camera is it?"

    He had a point, the darn thing looks a bit like a video camera.

    So I was trying to compose an image with the 4x5, when I was approached by some very stylish dude -"Cool old camera! Is that a hass...". "It's a Crown Graphic" I interupted pointing to the front of the camera - which he could see perfectly well from where he was blocking my shot. "Wow! Great! I'll give you my email address - you can send me the picture." (!!!)

    I get asked if its digital a lot.....

    I would love to own a Kershaw King Penguin, surely the most stupid name for any camera (apologies to any "King Penguin" owners). But if you owned one it would be great for these sort of circumstances.

    I just want to say I'm proud of my thread which has now remained active for over three years. It is probably the greatest thread I've ever started anywhere.

    And to add to it, new ITAH story!

    I have one coworker now that I'll occasionally talk photo stuff with, any time I try to describe my equipment larger then a 35mm, I get the response "Oh, A Hasselblad!" So now my Yashicmat 124G has been ITAH'ed, and my Speed Graphic has received another notch on its belt. Both without the guy even seeing them.

    Saturday a girl I was taking photos of asked to hold my Hasselblad and said, "Is this a really nice Holga?"

    So sort of a reverse eh?

    Time to revive this thread. I only had my first ITAH encounter 2 days ago, while on a 3 day photography trip with a Speed Graphic. A Dutch guy with some friends didn't ask me the infamous question but just stated to his friends that my Speed would be a Hasselblad.
    I corrected him and gave all of them a look at the groundglass
