I'm very fortunate that most of the sales folk at my main camera store are film-heads themselves so I never get guff from them for shooting the Rollei, and they're very chuffed when I have contact prints from one of my LF/ULF cameras to show. I've been using the Rollei a lot lately, and out in public the majority of reactions I get to it are extremely positive (the most common question is "how old is that", followed by requests to take a picture of me holding it). I've been seeing a lot less of the photographer-to-photographer ego/disrespect lately and I don't have a good explanation for it -maybe it's just that digital is no longer so new that people feel the need to justify their investment in it.
