    A few weeks ago I finally came to the conclusion that my zenit needed a name. He's been my best Friend since November and goes everywhere with me. In fact, he even slleps on the nightstand next to me. Because he's so heavy, I figure I could use him in a situation calling for self defense. So, I named him Boris and he seems to be pleased with it. What I'm wonderin' is, have any of you named yer camera?

    No but others named the cameras I cobble together frankencams. I usually just say will you hand me that son of bit** so that might be a generic name for them

    I have two identical Canon EOS 5 bodies...

    One has a gold spot on the top and the other has two gold spots. I say, "gimmie number one" or "gimmie number two" from time to time. They donĀ“t usually respond by themselves.

    My wife named my camera (the one currently in most use) Nikki. Her nickname for any of my Nikon's. So when talking to Cathy about my camera, I sometimes call it Nikki. This is a joke we have used for my last 6 or 8 Nikon bodies.

    Oddly enough, though I don't name my cameras I do name my computers.

    I call my 400D "digi" when asking my wife to get/pass/use it.

    Usually I call them by their manufacturers names e.g minolta, Fujica or shorter, model names like BX-20.

    The only ones that have what could be called nicknames are my Polaroids. The 340 is called "Roid" and the Image II is called "Clicky" (after the noise the sonic autofocus makes)
