    I had a twenty-something guy approach me to ask about the Rolleiflex. I showed him the viewfinder with Maxwell screen. His jaw dropped, and then all he could say was, 'What an amazing LCD!!'

I got to my destination, shot it, and when it was processed, well... the rest is history as they say.
    I know you did, I just wanted to point out the distinction to those who might not be aware of it.

    I had a late 20-something friend ask incredulously of my Yaschicamat, "no batteries? That's not electronic at all?" I explained how it worked.

    I agree with not answering an intelligent but merely uninformed question with a smart assed reply. That's making ourselves our own worst enemies. Or perhaps that isn't "smart assed" to most people. My family always took a very dim view of sarcasm and I tend to as well. Just me I suppose. (I'm not above a witty reply, but when I do that I'm usually being intentionally rude or at least trying to get rid of someone annoying, OR engaging in back and forth with a willing participant for fun, not answering sincere questions from strangers.)

    That is, I agree IF it's not followed up with a laugh and a serious reply. That's a pretty friendly way to start a conversation if so inclined.

    Anything bigger that a 35mm camera gets noticed.

    The THWAK of a Hasselblad and the sounds of the focal plane shutter on a Graflex Model D or Pacemaker Speed Graphic will turn the heads of the rest.
    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.

    I don't own a Rolleiflex, however I do have two Mamiya TLRs that I love to make pictures with, and I don't give two monkeys f**ks what "the great unwashed" think about them.

    Oddly last time ii flew I had (surprisingly) few issues with hand inspection. I had about 20 rolls in a ziploc, which maybe helped. The TSA guys on both sides gave me the "xray- won't hurt it" spiel, but I just told em I had a lot of film of mixed types and would rather be safe. May have helped it was all 120, perhaps the uneducated thought it may be something "special".
