    An M3 would be a pretty good choice.

    When you turn your camera on, does it return the favor?

    Hasselblad 905 SWC since they are rather hard to find

    I guess it depends on who you're trying to impress. A while ago I walked into a Ritz with my Nikon F2, and the clerk practically wet his pants. He said no one ever comes in with a "classic" SLR like that. See, that's the problem--nice cameras only impress camera geeks. And the whole point of bling is to be expensive and flashy in an obvious way. Even a brand new, $30K digital Hasselblad kit isn't going to be impressive to people who don't really know what it is.

    It would have to be a camera that could rival the absurdity of the Flavor Flav style clock I usually wear around my neck. How about a chrome-plated pinhole camera made out of a Quaker Oatmeal container?

    How about a lightweight, yet still relatively sophisticated, piece of camera bling? That way you don't have to tire from something heavy hanging on a gold chain around your neck, yet still have that "professional" photog look. So, shitcan the "Hit" and wear a small SLR system camera - - a Pentax Auto 110!! If is is equipped with the zoom lens, score extra points.

    1) Three Rolli's around your neck; each with a different focal length pair of lenses.
    2) A Speed or Crown Graphic with a large flash attachment and flash bulb. Fire the flash at people as the get out of a car or exit a building.
    3) An Ariflex movie camera with a three lens turret.
    4) A stereo camera.

    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.
