On my RB67 lens, I have a Nikon cap so some interesting conversations get started or comments go on around me, with people thinking I dont hear or understand what they're talking about. (with the motley of tongues, I suppose, it can be a fair assumption).
A lot of conversation deals in how great x brand of camera is or isn't. And quite a few mistake RB67 for a video camera - more so cos I'm using the wlf and tripod.
It is always a great conversation starter, its almost like dangling a woolen thread at a bunch of kittens - reactions vary in intensity but boy, aren't they all curious!!
The most recent one was with a farmer as I was taking long exposure street shots on my Nikon Digital during Dasara Celebrations in Mysore. A 15min chat that was interesting and educative - we talked a lot about the city and its heritage etc.,
And the WLF or live view gets a lot of people just wanting to peep in and see what I'm so excited about photographing.
Oh, and having a camera+ gear n wielding it like you own the place gets you in many places where you wouldn't get entry otherwise!
