    And a lot of guys are still intrigued by the way her back rotates.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Spelled 'Hasse', which is a nick name for Hans.

    So Hans would be a really good name for a Hasselblad.

    A friend of mine was fond of nicknaming my cameras; he, being an ardent anglophile, decided to call my Hasselblad "Algernon", and would periodically inquire after "Al's" well-being.

    I have a love affair with my Hasselblad. I have two, but I only love the one. I don't particularly like the lenses, I don't like their size or action, but there's just something about that camera that I have bonded with and when I use her, it's like she knows how to finish what I was trying to say.

    If we continue on the Swedish name teme, I would suggest "Virre" for a Hasselblad. It's a nickname for both Victor and good old whiskey.

    That leaves some room for maneuvre if you tell your wife you'll go and grab Virre.
