Nice thread Simon!

Languages made a very interesting topic.

I am Italian but fell in love with photography while living in Germany...oh, well wait, in Bavaria actually :-) and everything I learned about photography was either in english or german at the point that when I was talking to fellow italians friends I hardly knows the right terminology in my native language...

Down there is "Leica" and not "Laika" :-)
I remember typing messsucherkamera, mittelformatkamera, rollfilmkamera, or belichtungsmesser in my search back then.

Now that I am living in Belgium I had to re-learn photography related terminology in French in case I want to discuss it with local friends...
The good things is that we don't need words to look at a photo.
Keep posting.

Servus und PfiatGott!
