    Just about every car I have owned I have named. The current group is Jenna, Little One and Cavy but sometimes they get more colorful like Jezebel, Big Dog and BUFF. (big ugly fat fu--er.) It goes with out saying the wifes Toyota remains nameless because no one can love a Toyota. But least I digress. Anyone get attached enough to their camera to name it?

    No, but the amount of gear it makes me think I need I should call it gold digger

    I had one years ago that I named "jammin' piece of worthless junk."
    Other than that, no. I tend to call them by their model numbers, my 7000 and my 800.

    I was never very good at naming my cars either. In fact, I've had my current car for a couple of years now and still haven't come up with a suitable name.

    No. But I tell them to go f**k themselves every time I use them at least once.
    It's important to establish dominance.

    I also use them to take photos of the equipment I plan to replace them with.
    It's like forcing a man to dig his own grave and then changing your mind and letting him live.

    Don't take crap from your equipment.

    My car is Lucille.

    My cameras? Well, I sometimes call the Mamiya C330 "The Beast" which makes the Mamiya 645, "Baby Beast" but otherwise, the most I do is shorten the names. So, the Lubitel becomes Luby, the Spotmatic is Spot, and the Land Camera is sometimes the Pola.

    Admittedly, I call my RB67 "BA". Bad Azz, or Boat Anchor.... either works. And the Tamron 150-600 I call the Tamzooka.

    My Tair 135/2.8 I'm trying to come up with a moniker other than the tired, worn-out Bokeh King or Bokeh Monster.

    My Shen Hao has been called lots of things, but mostly "Damn!"
