    anyone names their camera like a pet? For some it might be silly for others we bond with it... I call my new E-M1 Black Evil :cool:

    I'm not big on naming stuff. The wife agrees.

    I just never cottoned to the idea of naming inanimate objects. Their name is enough, eg. EM5, EP5, GX7, 25-1.8, etc.

    My wife takes pics so "my" camera doesn't work. PEN, OMD, GH3, etc., are our "pet" names.

    EVIL as in Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens camera. (I didn't coin that term it already existed) I just like to call my cameras something else than the manufacturer intended. :cool:

    I named my car, haven't ever felt the need to name my camera. It could happen, though. The little Konica rangefinder I just bought is awful cute.
