    It rotates so that the viewfinder can either serve as a right angle finder or an elevated finder in the normal orientation. The old F-1 version (which I have) did the same thing.

    For the tacky but extremely expensive bling look I'll second the Argus C-33 with the chrome gold plated and the leather replaced with something ridiculous like hammered platinum. And the window in the light meter would have to be rebuilt with small diamonds.

    On a smaller budget maybe one of these: http://www.merrillphoto.com/galacoll...launivexa1.jpg

    But the camera I carry that starts the most conversations is the Speed Graphic. Even met one girlfriend through my 2x3 Speed.

    I never consider a camera as a fashion accessory, well, but I do admit that I jumped at the chance to pick up a black QL17 GIII a while back, and I do think it looks cool to carry around.

    I'm with you on this - however, if I was *forced* to pick a really bling camera, it would be something ridiculous like a gold Nikon FA... with matching gold 50mm f/1.4.

    But I wouldn't do it ... it's just tacky.

    Well that's the beauty of it, it is a right angle finder that you can also turn so it transforms into a normal finder with very high minimum viewing distance. I really want one because I keep doing these tripod shots were the camera is like 1 foot off the ground, and it's very hard to focus a camera in that kind of position.
