Certainly my Canon F1n.

But I miss my Mamiya 645 almost as much.

The price tag. ;)

My first serious camera, a used Rolleiflex Automat, taught me photography so is still an all time favorite.

I want to say leica M3, but I haven't shot with it that much yet. I definitely have a soft spot for low speed cloth shutters like k1000, FED... they just last forever.

Olympus XA is in a league of its own

For digital I found a perfect match - sigma dp2 and dp1. Does all I need.

easy, first one I ever bought. A tiny plastic no name that took film cassettes and those little square flash bulbs good for 4 shots. Still have it and the manual, and it's the last camera I'd ever give away if forced to do so :-)
Must be 40+ years old by now. Unfortunately I don't think they still make the film cassettes, and w/o it doesn't work.


40D, 5D3, a bunch of lenses and other things :cool:

Haven't had that many which I would qualify, but I guess I have to go back to my first SLR. Minolta SRT 201 bought in 1976 and carried for 14 years. I carried it slung across my chest for many, many miles of trail and off trail rambling through the mountains of Colorado. That camera was simple to use, ruggedly built, and was still going strong when I passed it down to my niece in 1993.

However, I'm also rather fond of my current 60D, albeit for different reasons. I never really worried about the SRT breaking because there was so little to actually go wrong with it. That is something that's sort of in the back of my mind all the time with the 60D. Also never had to worry about dust and dirt unless you were making lens changes in the middle of a sandstorm, but dust is always a concern with a digital.

I'd say the 5D3 as well. It is the mythical 3D that many of us have wanted for a long time. Sure there are older cameras that I've loved too, but this thing is a workhorse and allows me to do my job faster than anything else, with consistent results and that's what counts most in my book.

I'm going to go with the phrase, "My favorite camera is the one in my hand." For a real answer though, I think my Polaroid SX-70 is actually my favorite. There's just something about instant cameras that really interested me.

I've an interesting Polaroid observation. I'm our family archiver and have been scanning lots of old pictures. Most have faded quite a bit and have lost lots of contrast, except the old Polaroids. Even the really old ones, (50+ years old) look almost new. They really got the paper recipe right.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

It's a toss up for me between my dad's old Practika Nova B which was the first SLR that I learned with. I used it regularly for 5 or 6 years. Then when I was 16 Dad bought me a brand spanking new Pentax ME Super with the 50mm f/1.7 for Christmas.
