    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.

    I just got asked on Saturday if my Rolleiflex was a Hasselblad.
    Usually I'm asked if my Yashicamat is a Rolleiflex. Go figure...

    It's been a little while so I thought I'd add another entry. Last week I was at an outdoor training course with my RB67 and one of the instructors asked if it was a Hasselblad. Apparently he used to shoot 4x5. Some of the students told him about the camera I usually use (a Graflex RB) and he was disappointed I hadn't brought it along.
