IDK about that. I was shooting Little League Baseball last weekend with a Hasselblad. Nobody paid any attentionto me until all of the sudden one of the Umps walked over and asked, "So, you're shooting with a Hasselblad today, eh?". He also mentioned that "way back when" he worked as a wedding photographer's assistant and loaded plenty of Hasselblad magazines. Since then we've been good buddies... all because of some random gear talk. What's so wrong with that?
Anything for the team, Brian. It never hurts to get the umps on your side!
