    While not 35mm, my Pentax 6x7 gets LOTS of (worried? curious?) stares.

    For a 35mm camera, the Rolleiflex 3003 is the most noticed, with some occasional attention, maybe because of its odd shape.

    Contrary to popular belief, Leicas are useless for attracting attention... ;-)

    Funny Thread!
    my personal choice would be either one of these gold Hasselblad or Mamiya RB67 anniversary editions,
    or, to follow Steve´s suggestion, 3 Rollei TLRs, tele, wide and normal version in the gold-plated anniversary edition, combined with some golden necklace, so it would look like the style of Mr. T ;-)

    If you want to be more graceful, this small Rollei 35 would be very nice :

    If I had to choose among my own cameras, it would have to be my black Spotmatic covered in bright red kid skin! But it's probably true that only (film)camera geeks will actually notice.

    Bling doesn't have to be either expensive or just for show. You can get an operational classic suitably blinged up at the addy below!

    In 35 mm, I think a nice and elegant camera would do the work, with an elegant covering (red skin)
    Bah, a golden rollei 35. Better this:

    On the other formats:
    A hassie, of course.
    A Rolleiflex with 2.8 lens, recovered in bright red skin.
    On the other side. The "cheap" tachihara 4x5 camera, cheap compared to other LF cameras but with nice cherrywood and brass finish. Seems that has to call attention. Maybe if you stay in the middle of a pedestrian streen with a tripond and the camera, more than one will shoot you with cellphones.

    Bling is a ghetto culture term for flashy jewelry worn by rappers. A lot of the drug dealers and pimps in my neighborhood wear a lot of bling to show off their wealth. Personally if I could afford such jewelry, I wouldn't live in the area of town I live in, but I grew up middle class, so my outlook is different.

    As for what camera, I used to see doctors and lawyers wearing Leicas as jewlery all the time when I lived in Santa Fe, but that's rare here in Indiana even in wealthy communities. People here are too practical minded for that.
