LOL great responses. No name for any of mine ever. Well unless you consider the epithets thrown at them when I take a bad picture.

I just call mine "The EOS" so I will say I gotta remember "The EOS".

Everyone in my family ask me did you bring the EOS?

Beast. It's probably pretty common. But that's really the only thing that comes to mind!

My 20D has always been called The Tractor because of the agricultural sound of the shutter and mirror.

My other three bodies are currently nameless but I guess, by that criterion, they'd be:
Silky - 5DII;
Clunky - 5Dc;
and
Rat-A-Tat-Tat for the 1Dc.

We call the 70-200 II "Whithey"

The bodies are called lefty and righty - because they are usually hanging on my left and right sides

Yeah, an other one - not particularly my camera, but I sometimes call sophisticated equipment "apparatsky" :D

Ed and Fred
They are 50D twinkies...

Actually, I don't name the cameras, but my 70-200mm 2.8 L I fondly call 'Bertha'


Godox/Flashpoint r2 system, plus some canon stuff.

I've long referred to my 1D Mark III as "the beast". Whenever I'm going out on a shooting trip and my wife asks which camera I'm taking, I'll say "the beast". It's big and heavy and so are the lenses that go with it.


I use a Kodak Brownie

The camera is just a tool - it is not responsible for the picture.
