    Depends on the neigborhood. In this area, people tend to treat you will a lot of respect if you've got a big wooden tripod with an 8x10 atop it, but are suspicious when you're aiming an SLR, as if you're invading their privacy. Once a ways inland, the equivalent of our "Midwest" in California, if you set up a view camera they think you're either a terrorist or a spy for the UN and Al Gore, plotting how to confiscate their
    goats and chickens. ... With kids, around here they politely wait until you're done with the shot then approach and ask to look behind the
    darkcloth, and generally respond with "cooool!". With an SLR, they just think you're an uncool fuddy-duddy. But inland, kids throw rocks at you,
    and teenager and rednecks spin tires at you, either way, because they don't recognize either as a camera.

    If you had been in Vancouver, it would have been a hood on a goretex jacket.

    19 years ago on holiday in Vancouver over the New Year period, for me it was both goretex jacket with hood and toque, (for warmth)
    Got quite cool while riding BC ferries all over the place. Stayed a couple of nights with friends on Saturna Island and the wind was howling!!

    Tomorrow I'm off to the UK. Crazy niece of mine has booked her wedding for early December. Looks like it's gonna be quite chilly
    so I'm taking my 19 yo Canadian toque with me. It still looks like new as it has never been worn in Oz. I still have the goretex shell jacket
    made by, I think, the Mountain Equipment Company. A really well made garment.

    Most likely, Mountain Equipment Co-op. And yes, very well made.

    +1. MEC clothing is de rigueur for us Left Coast snappers! Keeps us (and our equipment) dry when the skies open up in November (and continues with the wet stuff until...).
    Some Nikons (F6, F5, F3P, F3HP, F2ASx4, F2A, F2 and a D800), with Ai/Ais Nikkors ranging from 15mm to 600mm; Leicas (M6X2), with Leitz glass from 28 to 90mm and a pair of Hasselblads (500c/ms), with Zeiss glass from 50 to 250mm. A bit of stuff for a no-longer practicing professional, but justifiable for a now-converted hobbyist who absolutely loves taking/making pictures.

    Well, I'm just getting into film so I'm not sure how folks in my area would react to an older slr, although my t3i sure gets some looks when I have the 70-200 f4L on it, especially with the hood attached lol. I mostly take it to drag races or autoX, so people usually aren't suspicious.

    Using my 35mm gear I rarely get a second glance (even when setting up on a tripod). However, with my Minolta Autocord TLR I usually get a bevy of second glances. When using my RB67 the floodgate opens!
