    Did not happen since I actually own a Hasselblad ! (Apart from a fellow who had one in the past).

    You could still be asked if it's a Hasselblad.

    Finally, on the trail to Estes Cones (Rocky Mtn Nat'l Park) an older gentleman asked if the Rolleicord I was carrying was a "Hasselbrad." I responded it was a Rollei and he said, "Ah, very nice."

    Well I did not get asked if it was a Hasselblad, but here is what happened. I was in San Diego Wildlife Safari Park a few weeks ago and I bought with me a Salyut C. While I was waiting in line to get on the Safari ride, a person carrying a 7d and 300/4 came to me (he was like from 7 people away) and said "Wow, That IS a Hasselblad!". Of course I corrected him, but I guess he really was fascinated with the WLF, like an LCD he says.

    In Gran Teton I was shooting my 4X6 and another photographer asked me later if I was shooting a Hasselblad. She was a distance from me when I had the camera set up though. In Yellowstone I was shooting the Hasselblad and a middle aged women walking by and stopped briefly and then said "I hope you are using Kodak" Turns out she was from Rochester. Also in Yellowstone I was shooting and felt like someone was right behind me and sure enough from a large group of Japanese tourists one younger lady was just staring at what I was doing. Try a little bit of conversation but she was content just to watch me work. Then I noticed she had a Leica around her neck.

    Several other people in the parks stopped and watch me shooting on the tripod and a few times I was asked why I was using the Hasselblad and why film. I only got the impression that they all were curious and actually wished to know.

    When I was young I was asking my father to take me to the beach. Mum told me not to Hasseldad.

    This has only happened to me once. I had been shooting my shen hao for about 6 months, and I got my first ITAH. I was surprised at the question, so I gave a very candid answer, "I don't speak Chinese. It is a 4x5 camera." She walked away very confused.

    After reading the first few pages, i'm getting the idea it happens a lot. I'll think of something more cynical the next time it happens to me.
