    Making waves with a C330

    Today I was out shooting with my new-to-me Mamiya C330f. Id used it before, but this was the first time I was outside downtown with it.

    Just composing on the sidewalk, I thought I was going to cause an accident... people were amazed at the old thing. I was surprised that they were surprised. At least no one asked, "How many megapixels?".

    Cheers.

    You should see the looks I get with my Zeiss 531/2 folding 6 x 9 camera. Someone did ask if it was a Leica. I said, "no ... better than a Leica."

    You should see the looks I get when using my linhof Tech III or B&J 5X7! " gee how old is that camera?" " Is that a camera?" "Are you a professional?" "Boy that thing must be pretty old?"
    No escaping it!

    Hmmmm...someone actually asked me, while I was setting up a shot of the apparently defunct Detroit Boat Club, if my 8x10 B and J Orbit (a.k.a. the Black Beast) was digital.

    Lost count of the times when shooting with my C330f, someone with an obvious knowledge of cameras (or maybe not, who knows?) says 'Now that's what I call a camera!' Enjoy using it fellah!

    My favorite reaction was the day someone asked if my Argus C-3 was a Leica.

    im always amused by reactions like these. i take it as an opportunity to educate. camera awareness! someone once asked me if my 4x5 was a hasselblad.. so kudos for even knowing that name. out with my 8x10, i was asked if i was shooting a movie.

    I took advantage of the opportunity to do a little show-and-tell when I was out with the 5x7 at Antietam battlefield over the weekend. The comment I got that I liked the best was from the young woman - after she looked under the darkcloth, she said, "Wow! it's so clear! It's better than Hi-Def TV!"

    Good Evening,

    Years ago, I was doing a night shot with my stylish Calumet CC-400 when someone in a group across the street said, "Hey, guys. We're on TV!"
