    Yesterday at the Rocky Mountain Balloon festival in Colorado Springs, it happened FOR A SECOND TIME with my Mamiya C33. I told him it was a Mamiya. He wondered what year and I told him 1964, and we were immediately separated by 2 guys dragging a rope to stretch out a 2nd wave balloon. It came between us and I never saw him again.

    A little later, a woman came by. Judging by her equipment she seemed to really have her digital act together, and she said, "Now there's challenge!" I gave her a big smile and nod and thought, "That's somebody who GETS it".

    Yeah, it's a Hasselblad. I didn't want to risk dropping my good camera, so I left it at home.

    Yes, I was using my RB67 yesterday in the park and a big guy with a digital camera asked me the dreaded question.

    Dreaded? I think it's cool.

    I've recieved that too. Twice, in fact. That was when I was using my Yashica TLR. It's also been called a brownie, box camera, 3D camera, and a couple people have mistaken it as a Rolleiflex.

    Someone once asked if my Pentax 645N was a Bronica or Mamiya.
    That's as high up the food chain as I have ever gotten.

    My next door neighbor saw me with my 645n on a tripod, right angle finder, focus rail, 120mm macro lens, cable release, the whole thing. She said "Mighty fancy camera, George! Is it a Nikon?" I told her it was a Pentax, she seemed disappointed.

    And so it goes.....
