    Shouldn't you be hugging your wife, and not cameras? Your priorities are all a-kimbo.

    I think the car fanatics would probably put us to shame when it comes to pet names for inanimate objects. My cameras don't have pet names but our cars do. We have "Bob" (a 7 year old Subaru Outback) and my wife mainly drives "Dianne" (a 15 year old Toyota Corolla) - pretty dull, eh?!

    I doubt he likes being called that, as his name is Vito.
    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.

A few months ago I finally purchased a 500CM and a couple of Zeiss lenses. The minute that chrome and black camera arrived at my home, it felt like I'd come full circle. I continue to enjoy my DSLR gear, but it doesn't come close to having mojo like that 500CM. There is something about Victor's design that just feels magical to me.
    It wasn't Victor' s original design it was copied largely.from an aerial camera found in in German military aircraft that crash landed in.Sweden in W.W11

    My wives dog is known by many names, none of which is her original name. She comes quite nicely to "hey bitch", Phoebe, Princess...
