    As a robot pornographer (design drafter) I have to say you need to get out more with those cameras, but first imagine if you will that someone like me somewhere did intricate technical drawings of all those cameras without their coverings on them.
    "Would you like it if someone that painted in oils told you that you were not making portraits because you were using a camera?"
    "Shouldn't it be more about the joy of producing and viewing the photo than what you paid for the camera?"

    Sirius, I've been caught by my wife on more than one occasion with the Hasselblads in my hands. "I was...ah, just looking at them...to...make sure that they're still in working order...."

    You guys are sick. I can think of only one cure. Pack up your cameras and send them to me. My wife still does not understand why I sit here sometimes focusing my ETRS, changing lenses, etc. and running my hands lovingly over my Leica, testing the rangefinder and adjusting the settings to the changing light conditions. She demands equal time which sometimes I find unfair.

She snaps on command with a delicate nip at beautiful scenery n appreciates everything I show her, always on time n never delays or hesitates like the larger full figured women, I mean cameras.
    Gawd, I think I'm blushing.
    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.

    Oh wow, I thought I was the only one or that there was some secret self-help group. Camera fondlers anonymous or something

    My cameras are all on a shelf when not in use and sometimes, when my mind drifts away, I take one out, look through the viewfinder and set focus and exposure, though I really don't intend to take a photo. Some cameras are indeed like women... and what woman would be happy about sitting around all day and maybe being looked at from time to time?

    My god people you need a significant other or to schedule a date night with the one you already got.

    Remember KY is NOT a camera lubricant.

    With that logic, would you also put a roll of film in her rear and expect some great photos?

    My girlfriend aspires to be treated like my cameras. She knows that she has to compete and she likes a good challenge.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
