Exactly. And you see and experience much more scenery on a bicycle… ;)
Rollei=Bentley, Hasselblad=Rolls Royce, Linhof=Maybach, Leica=BMW, Canon=Honda, Nikon=Toyota, Mamiya=Lexus, 8x10=American Musclecar
wait!!! my 8x10 manages to do some corners!
When I'm shooting my 8x10, I hope think that people don't think that I'm compensating....For using my digital camera ;)
Graflex cameras are like Ladas, the Argus brick is akin to an Indian motor bike engined rickshaw :D
What? No one thinks the Miranda Sensorex is like a Dodge pickup? They both have the same grill. Even some of the new Dodge cars have the Sensorex type grill. Time for a resurrection of the Miranda Sensorex name, only this time with "Ram Tough" construction. Right? Marketing people are you listening?
In another thread I recently compared the New Deardorff as the Harley Davidson of cameras.
My 1903 Eastman Improved #2 7X11" is a Thomas Flyer.
My Chamonix 4X5 is a black Beemer with tinted windows.
My 9.5X20" Indian Camera with modern Chamonix film holders is an Isotta Fraschini
and my Ciro-Flex is a 1949 Ford shoebox
I was thinking of the fact I insist on a manual transmission in my cars (those outside the US may not realize how hard it can be to even FIND one here when car shopping) and like film cameras that are either all manual or at least have full manual over rides.
I bought a car in Dec. 2010. Because I insisted on the manual transmission and a few other, much more common, options, the local dealer had to get one for me from a dealer in Florida.
