    I was just out shooting with an 8x10 Deardorff. An older woman started chatting with me. "You must also have a Hassleblad."

    She gets a few bonus points.

    Then you can get a T-shirt that reads "My other camera is a Hasselblad".

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.

    When you do hold one for the first time, you will experience the simultaneous rise in the GAS pressure and hear a great wallet suck.
    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.

    I'm new so perhaps there is another thread that deals with this ...

    I'm new, so perhaps there is another thread that deals with this, but while never asked the Hassy question, I AM asked, pretty much daily, the "can you still get film for that?" question.

    Usually while I'm taking pictures.

    Temptation is strong to say "No, I just do this to keep in practice," or some such witty reparte...so far, I've been good.

    so far.

    Yup, I get the film question, too. I also get "can you still get bullets for that?" when at the range with my older rifles.

    Here's one that had me yelping with laughter as the perpetrator disappeared in the crowd.

    Was at big car show in Vancouver yesterday. As I was sizing up a car through the Yashica LM I got ITAH'd yet again. "No, it's a Yashica, a twin lens reflex."

    "Oh yeah. Right..... I've got a bunch of Hasselblad's in the closet at home."


    I did have the Hasselblad with me too, used it for some IR shots. It was correctly identified by a number of people, and lots of folks made guesses about the Yashica that were quite reasonable (Rollei, mostly).

    I saw one fellow shooting with a box brownie, and 2 with zero image pinholes. Hurrah!

    The only time I've ever heard anything like that (I said before I hadn't heard it - this was since then) was from my next door neighbor who saw me with my Mamiya 645 Pro from his yard over to my yard, a distance where it could have been mistaken easily for another medium format SLR, and it turned out my neighbor did used to have Hassleblads and earned his living as a photographer. We had a nice chat - the economy tanking forced him into other work but he still does pro photography, 100% digital, on the side. Has a nice web site too. We'd lived next door to each other for about seven years when we discovered this. Neither of us had any idea the other was interested in photography.

    I've never been asked if my camera was a Hasselblad... not even when shooting at least three different medium format cameras. I have been told "that's a nice antique camera" while shooting with a modern 4x5 though.
