    As a parallel, I used to drive a 1954 R-type Bentley which belonged to a friend. I f I had a dollar for every time I was asked if it was a Packard, I'd have been able to put a down payment on the thing. It was RHD, btw.

    I guess having someone saying ITAH in that situation is better than someone saying "Is that a Minox?" :-)

    For the first time ever I had this happen to me recently.

    Except that when the questioner got closer, he said "oh now I see, it is a Mamiya".

    It was an RB67, on a monopod.

    Yeah, that is just something many film users must deal with. Imagine a camera that works in cold weather, who woulda thought?

    Last winter, I was out in about -5f weather with a Nikkormat. The camera took it in stride, but my cellphone stopped working. So much for enhanced 911

    Oddly, today I was out with my "new" RB67, and someone asked me if it was a Voigtlander. Which I thought was a little odd. How would someone even know the name Voigtlander and think an RB was one?

    Though I think the best was one time walking with my Koni-Omega and someone says "That's crazy! What the hell is that!"

    No ITAH for me. Did get asked, "What is that noise?", with my Mamiya 645 Super. Have been asked if I still shoot film, as I was inserting a new roll. "Nah, I am just changing the batteries". A Hassy is on my future shopping list. I've never held one, much less shot one. Which is why I want one, even if my images are not one iota better with one.
