My Mamiya RB67 with the 37mm fisheye lens on it. The front element is so vast and hungry that there is a danger of being sucked in by it if you stand too close.
Photography, the word itself, invented and defined by its author Sir John.F.W.Herschel, 14 March 1839 at the Royal Society, Somerset House, London. Quote "...Photography or the application of the Chemical rays of light to the purpose of pictorial representation,..". unquote.
I get comments most often when I have my Koni 100 or Yashica 124 with me.
In fact I was out with my Yashica 124 on Sunday and I am always amazed how kids passing by think it is cool. A couple of kids stared at it as they walked by, a few kids asked about it and said it was cool and one kid even shouted 'cool camera' from a car as he went by.
Of course they probably tell their parents that they saw an old fart with some cool camera.
Funny story--I took this thing to a local historical event to shoot a few snaps...everyone was looking at me like I had three heads. Even the people dressed up like it was 1890 were looking at me like I was crazy LOL. Weirdest thing. Wonderful camera though, and the IQ is outstanding.
That's odd. I took my Yashicamat 124 to a steampunk convention and got oodles of nothing but compliments. Shot some Delta 3200 indoors with it too, which I still need to develop.
Out of smarass made, pretty much any TLR, judging from the comments I get on the Yashica. People are interested in the Mamiya 645, just think I'm an old film fart with my 35mm gear, and are really puzzled by the Linhof 4x5, but they all seem to instantly love the TLR.
