Maybe infantile?
I'm not legally old enough to get paid for my services, which entitles me to be 'infantile' and also extremely bored and in want of something to do, ie, cover my camera in ilford stickers :p. Now, If you know of any other teens that love photography enough to walk around with an M series on their chest, introduce them to me!

DO IT!!!!! Everyone gets a bit serious about their cameras. Put a sticker on it that says something like "My other camera is a Rangefinder" or something equally crap.

Can you get spinners for cameras?

The only pimping I’ve seen of cameras is replacing the old black or brown leather with colored leather

It's all about chroming your lens and getting lens cap spinners (which is such a good idea. may have to invest in that) I'm gonna hook mine up with some neon :lol:

with 6400, why not make it 500 frames per sec? (cos youd get a bit less than 1/10th second in one roll!)

On T-shirts:

The coolest are those with an 'in' meaning.

Example: a t-shirt with a photo of Einstein's face on the front in red, and a photo on the back of the back of his head in blue.

Should be possible to work out something on that line with a photography t-shirt.
