    I had someone actually recognise my RZ yesterday while I was shooting a wedding. Turns out they're an ex studio-monkey who spent years working the crank on RB67s, so not everyone is ignorant.

    I had an interesting variation the other day:

    I had some guests over and when my friend's boyfriend saw the enlarger I keep at home he asked "What is that, some kind of 3D-printer?", thought it was pretty amusing.

    On a hike recently I had a hiker tell his partner my Rolleiflex was an "old Kodak Brownie." Gads.

    Gads indeed, not to mention zooks..

    I had a winner once at the airport when the TSA agent asked me to let him inspect the "scuba diving flashlight" in my bag. I never scuba dive so I was very perplexed. Opening my bag he pointed to my Hasselblad 503cxi... I told him it was a Hasselblad and was waiting for the ITAH quetion... he just told me I could proceed with a pat down... great!

    Soooo close...I was out yesterday with a Koni Omega Rapid M and I got a "Is that a Horseman?" I can see the resemblance so obviously, the guy knew something about film cameras.

    I didn't belive that it will happen but today I was with a Graflex Speed Graphic + Kodak Aero Ektar, and it happened. But he know something too, he said he knows that it looks like a 3D and "is it true that it costs 1 euro per sheet?" and finally asked me if he can take a look at the GG.

    Early morning encounter today with a walker doing a few circuits of the block near my house:
    Me: (pointing camera at tree)
    Her: what's in the tree?
    Me: light!
    Her: oh, (keeps walking)
    Her: (2nd circuit) what sort of camera's that?
    Me: (sheepishly) a Hasselblad
    Her: I thought so! (walks on)

    And there's the variant, I know it's a Hasselblad! Shooting last weekend and one guy approached me asking what kind of film I was using. He was a lab technician in one of the few remaining film development labs in Sydney. About 10 mins later, from about 20 meters away, a woman I would guess in her mid-thirties called out, hey, it's great to see someone still shooting 6x6 film! I do too! Smiles exchanged.
