    Who names/has named their camera? :mrgreen:
    My friend once had a very old film camera named Lomo, and now I'm wondering if I should name my new (used) Pentax K1000. Haha.

    I was told naming cars, laptops and other gear is a typical girl's thing :)

    I never considered it, since it would not react if i would call it by its name anyway.

    yes, but that was not the name given to it by you yourself :p If it was, I would complain, since mine has the same name :p

    I've named all my cameras. My old Mamiya 645 1000S I named Murray (once I found out how old the camera really was!) and I named my Mamiya Pro-TL Zoe. I just call my D70, My Baby. :heart:

    And yes, I'm a girl. :D

    good shout.
    in that case it's simply called "the camera" or occasionally "the SLR"

    if that doesn't count then mine is nameless!!

    My girlfriend calls my camera the "really pretty camera". I just tell all my high school friends it's "better than your consumer point and shoot" and they normally say I'm being snobby, but hey, it's true. As for an actual name. I think my Girlfriend told me to call it "Sophie". I have no idea why.

    (camera is Canon Rebel XT)
     
  10. I'm thinking of calling my Leica "Oscar."

    I totally disagree about girls naming their cars more than boys. That is typically a guy thing and the name of the car is almost always a FEMALE name. If I'm not mistaken there are several songs, written by men, about their female named cars.

    You tell 'em. :p
    Yes, the friend who named his camera Lomo, was actually a boy. Although I do have an online friend who named her laptop Charlie, so who knows. Ha.
