    one time in the Mountain. I have set up my panoramic Camera,I was waiting for the cloud to cover the sun so i walked around and then there is 2 lady approach me and ask are you doing some documentary or something? I replied, "I'm Making a photograph" and I show them the viewfinder, both of them have same reaction..."OMG I can see the whole scene". they both look at the scene and the Viewfinder twice.

    One interesting reaction: while I was shooting in downtown Chicago with my 4x5 monorail, a cab driver stopped and asked me where I had my film developed. Often, I am approached by curious people, and I try to show them the ground glass image when practicable.

    I’ve never had a stranger give me grief about using film. Probably a good thing, since I imagine I would not react positively to a stranger commenting on something that was none of their business.

    However, I was at a park one time and was placing my camera case and tripod in the back of the car. Some guy on a bicycle (tight shorts, helmet, you know the ones) rode up, screeched to a halt and immediately launched into a description of his new whatever-it-was and its quantitative characteristics and the size of his lenses. When he finally came up for air, he asked what I was shooting. I opened the case and pulled out the RB67, and suddenly size-is-everything boy was late for his cycling event.

    Love it! I'd love to be able to do the same thing with my 645n! Just think of his reaction had you pulled out a Linhof Super Teknica!

    What would they have said if you'd been shooting with a Pentax 67?

    8x10 or, better yet, 11x14 Deardorf (or larger view camera.)

    People always know my Technika is a camera. I think a Deardorf looks more like a camera than an RB67 does. It's almost THE classic camera shape. Now if you had a new Ebony or Chamonix or whatever, they'll think it's a restored antique.

    Yesterday I was shooting on the Denver 16th st mall with the Mamiya tlr and several people walking by had quick comments such as "cool camera", etc. One guy, maybe late 40s, got all excited because he has one at home that he never uses any more. We talked for 5 minutes or so. He used to shoot a lot of B&W with it and had his own darkroom/bathroom setup, but he's been solely digital for several years. He thought it was great to see somebody doing it. I hope it put a spark in him to dig it out and start shooting again.

Threats will not make us function; fear is not our incentive. It is not death that we wish to avoid, but life that we wish to live.” - John Galt
