    In the not too distant future…”Is that one of those NHI devices?” (Non-holographic Imaging).

    Last week my daughter and I chartered a fishing boat in Ft. Lauderdale. The Mate asked if my C330 was a Hasselblad, I explained what it was, and he said his dad owned one (a Hassy, not a Mammy). That was kind of funny. Got some nice photos during a huge storm.

    The fishing was great, my daughter caught a bunch of bonita, I got a king mackerel and a 25lb barracuda, which she photographed with the aforementioned Mamiya-not-Hasselblad.

    quick scan of the negative:

    My 500C/M never gets that kind of attention! In fact, I think it gets more when I don't have it with me.

    It seems that in Sweden people tend to recognise what is a Hasselblad and not (I have never been asked that question in error).
    I have been asked "is that a Leica" when I was using a Fed I, but from a distance anyone could make that mistake.

    But the annoying question that I get on a regular basis is when I'm shooting large format (8x10" and 4x5" both bought new) - "How old is that camera?"
    I have no idea how many times I have been asked this question, but whenever someone approaches me when I out taking pictures I know that this will be the first question.

    Hi there, new member here. This thread is awesome, I've been reading it obsessively for the last few days. I've never had an ITAH, but just last week, I was taking pictures with my RB67 of people reacting to a cow grazing at Harvard yard (long story) and one of them asked me if I was with the newspaper. It interested me that he didn't specify which paper he thought I might be from. It was just "are you with the newspaper?"

    Multiple inquiries lately about the C330, latest while on a helicopter operation.

    Lately I have found a new corallary while carrying my Graflex RB: "Is that a Brownie?" I get that one a lot, too.

    "Have I been asked if that is a Hasselblad?" Yes, while shooting an 8x10 in front of several water color painters. The woman who asked is married to a man who shoots weddings with three digital cameras.
