Today I participated in a bridal expo. I had some advertising post cards printed with a picture of "my pretty model". I was trying to stick with a black and white theme, so "she" was the perfect choice!
Thanks! I was also shooting for the subliminal message of "classic" by using the F2A. The cool thing was that most of the parents of the bride and grooms recognized the F2! Interesting note is that I was expecting folks to ask me if I still used film, but no one did.

I think that on a subliminal level people instinctively know it's a classic camera. While most people at the event probably never got to see or use an F2A, the design beauty of it speaks for itself.
While I haven't been much of a fan of shooting with the F2A (that top-spot award is split between my F/FTN Photomic Prism and F3HP), I do admire its looks. There is something timeless, elegant and beautiful about its design that places it in a unique spot among other Nikon bodies. Strange as it may sound, I like staring at it more than I like staring through it!
