    I was out in Big Cypress National Preserve this past weekend with The Beast (500 C/M) on a tripod, when a family with young kids came down the trail. The mother told her kids "Shhhhh... she's making a movie!!!". I didn't have the heart to tell her it was only one frame of a movie.

    That'll teach ya!!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I know what you mean! Most of the time it is because I'm ugly!

    If Jeff keeps this up he will be deleted!

    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.

    It gets everywhere, like that grass...

    I recently went to a locally-famous waterfall to photograph it in its winter coat of ice using my 1895 whole-plate camera. On my way back to my car, tripod with camera attached carried soldier-style, a couple of very cute college-aged girls snapped away at me with their little pocket digicam. I just smiled at them, and one said "your camera is way cooler than mine." Made my day.

    Wow, I love my little '45 Mini Speed Graphic with '23' 6x9 film backs, but I didn't know that Jackie Kennedy used one!?! Cool factor is right 'cuz this camera is a head turner... but the Mini SG is still completely practical & functional (did I mention affordable?). Plus, you can still use Ilford 120 XP2 Super B&W roll film and get it processed in C41 chem. 'develop only' for just a few bucks in about 15 minutes at a local 1-hour lab! Scan it and have some inexpensive 'film fun'... yet it will still perform the 'real' task with finer grain films, as the need arises. Graflex is a great learning tool if you're willing to do the work, but as history has proved, it's still so much more, as well!

    As I focused on a stack of plastic chairs in the January wet, a voiced boomed "That's a Hasselblad!!"
    He's a professional photographer - makes his living photographing fishing retreats, ski lodges, and other high-end tourist destinations (tough life, eh?).
    He sold his MF Pentax because he never used it. He doesn't do any photography for fun, but seemed glad that somebody was.
    He recognized the Hasselblad from a good distance away....
