    Thanks for the definition. Slang is bound to lead to bad communication, particularly with those for whom English is a second language.

    wikki "bling" for a definition and history..

    I think the big handle flashes really bling up any camera.. especially the retro bulb types.

    If you dont want to wear your expensive camera as bling.. how bout getting some 'costume bling' like those fake 'olympia' cameras?

    Those gold M6s are tough to beat...but if I could gold plate my Argus C33 and wrap it in red snakeskin, it would really be an eyegrabber!

    I was walking down the High Street with a Rolleicord Vb around my neck when a fellow stopped and asked "Cool. is that real?" I said 'Yes" and kept walking. It took me a minute to realize that he thought it was 'bling'.

    Probably a Platinum Leica, still in the box and shrinkwrap to maintain most value...EC

    A gold-plated 8x10, maybe? Just kidding.

    I think I would take a New F-1, the 85/1.2L and the Sports Finder. To me, that's the god of cameras. I want to own one someday. Along with the 24mm and 50mm L lenses.

    So that's what the Sports Finder looks like? To me that looks more like a right-angle finder attachment.
