    TTAH, That thar's a Hasselblad. (Good camera.)

    Shooting a Minolta Autocord on a tripod. Meh. I have to say though, in the non "ITAH" category, more people talked to me shooting the Autocord than any other time (one group was annoying because I was running a time exposure at that point and they kept getting in frame) and while nearly nobody *said* anything to me when I took out the Speed Graphic, everyone was ooh-ahhing and staying out of the way, even when I was walking it to the next spot on the tripod.

    I got ITAH'd a couple of weekend's ago and am pleased to report that it was actually a Hasselblad I had sitting on my tripod. The ITAH-er was a nice old chap who had, apparently, owned one many years ago but had fallen out of love with photography and sold all his gear.

    I'm actually quite surprised that people still know the name "Hasselblad" in these days of digital domination.

    The funny thing is, I constantly bump into people who used to use a Mamiya 330 ...Paul there are obviously more of us out there

    Walking around Lilly Lake in the Rocky Mtn National Park in Colorado a guy came up to me and asked if I was shooting with a "Real Camera" (a Fuji GSW690 III)and not one of those digital things. Not quite a ITAH moment, but close enough.

    Cha-Ching. I scored another ITAH today while shooting with a Century Graphic.

    I need to crawl through this thread and see what that brings the count up to.

    I was asked that today, and it was a Hasselblad. The asker had never seen a Hasselblad before and was happy that I was shooting film. He allowed that he had two F3s sitting a home and that they took better photographs than his digital camera he was holding. He said that since he used to develop film, he was feeling guilty about not using his Nikons.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
