    Personally I'd like to hear from some single female members.

    THAT comment is the reason why... APUG is not a dating service.

    Analog cameras are sexy machines! There's a sensuality to them when cradled in your hands. They're seductive with their burled knobs and finely crafted mechanisms as they whisper, snap and clap while you manipulate their controls. A digital camera seems to me to be otherwise, a lifeless drone, robotic and cold. Just my (perhaps strange) thoughts....

    I have this feeling about most autofocus SLRs, digital or not.

    In a human romance, there is always a degree of mystery and not all is ever fully revealed. As sincere and open a bond as one feels they have with their beloved, one can never truly know another's mind all the time. Chimping at the screen of a DSLR is mindreading. There's no mystery, no romance, no spark. It's all out there. As competent as I try to be with my film cameras, I never truly know what I've got until the film is dry and sitting on my lightpad. That frizzante quality keeps the love alive! I love my P67 even though I wish she would lose some weight, and not be so cranky when loading film. But, we're a pair...an item....a couple!

    Yes, the 503 CX is Victor, naturally.
    The 903 SWC is Wide Willy because he is such a braggart.

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Nice to know that I'm not alone with names for cameras.
    I have 'Pentaximus' the 67, 'Brutus' the EOS 1N, 'Ollie' the XA, 'Nil' for the ZeroImage pinhole and 'Nix' for the Nikon digi.
    When I called out to myself in a café last week, 'where is 'Brutus'!?', the girl looked up at me: "you didn't bring a dog in here, did you?". "No! I'm referring to my camera.".
