    The GOLD Nikon FA for the golden Bling Bling quality of it.

    I can't wear it, but I can carry it -- my 1931 Graflex SLR. This is called retro bling, and it sure attracts attention.

    My 1928 4"x5" Graflex Model D would like to talk to your 1931 Graflex.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Not necessarily the case, a modern day digital Hassy might not impress, but using a classical manual focus SLR, a folding camera or an old Leica still communicates visually to people who aren't interested in photography. The sleek look and sound of these classical cameras have many times impressed people at parties and helped me come off as a "serious photographer" instead of just an "annoying paparazzo" - which is one of the reasons why I think a classical manual focus SLR or mechanical Hasselblad is one of the best ways to get away with street photography and the likes of it.
