I took the GA last time and found it to be a tad limiting, though I do have a better understanding of how it works now. I think 35mm will do the job this time around.
I'd love to take my 6D and 300v, along with a 35mm f2 IS and 135L. I just don't have the space, however. I don't check any bags when I travel, just a backpack (Osprey Farpoint 40) and a camera bag (Domke F-5xc).

I shot 35mm in Tijuana and I wish I'd shot more!

I plan on shooting in some of the markets and crowded areas. The GA is great, but the f4 lens is a tad limiting. I remember constantly battling with slow shutter speeds, though supposedly January is the clearest month in CDMX.

Tested out my 45mm after opening it and cleaning a large piece of debris out of it. I snapped a couple of pics of the car since I usually use it for car photography. Shot on Ilford Delta 100.

I'm making the switch back to 35mm for a while and shooting with my Elan 7. I'm tired of how heavy and slow my medium format gear is. I shoot a test roll today just to make sure the meter on the camera is good. I compared it against my digital camera and thought the meter was under exposing by one stop so I rated the Delta 400 at 200. After viewing the negatives, I think the camera was spot on and I should have metered at 400.

When I had been working for 3 years and accumulated over 1200 saleable-quality transparencies. They were in my car when it was stolen and when the car was discovered the slides had been burnt on the side of the road. It was devastating: not only had I lost a huge investment of time and effort, but also a lot of personal memories. It was thirty years before I discovered some duplicates and rejects from my portfolio. They had been stored in less than ideal conditions and many were ruined by moisture and fungus.

So the few images I have from that era are less than perfect, but they have some value to me as memories from 1984. They were taken on Canon A-1s or Nikon F3s with Tamron Adaptall SP lenses, using Ektachrom 200 film.

The first is an image of fishing boats drawn up at a beach in preparation for a Typhoon on an island near Singapore.

The second image is sunset on the beach at Kuta, Indonesia. I was fortunate to catch the moment when one of the players was in line with the setting sun, and the ball was also in line above her.

That's a terrible story! Glad you at least have something to salvage.

I was really second-guessing my decision to shoot 35mm in Mexico instead of 6x4.5, but I'm just not going to worry about it. I was also nervous that taking a 50mm for it would be the wrong move, because I'm a 35mm guy. I'm just going to go and have fun. Whatever happens, happens. I leave in one week, and instead of bringing a huge variety of stocks like I did on the last trip, I have 15 rolls of Portra 400 and 5 or so rolls of Tri-X. Gonna bring what I can fit because I know I can buy more when I get there - all the camera shops in Centro Historico have 35mm.

On another note, It used to be really easy to get these late model SLRs for CHEAP, and they are GREAT. I've had a number of Rebel SLRs that I've paid no more than $10 for - AF is great, especially using my modern glass. The metering is surprisingly good from what I've seen. Unfortunately I gave most of the cameras away, lol! I have one of them left (300V / Rebel Ti) and it has been a really great camera for what it is. Curious to see how the higher end models are - the Elan is intriguing, but I really, REALLY want an EOS 3. Haha.

I'm sort of in the process of shifting from quantity > quality, to quality > quantity.

I really want an Eos 3 as well, but the price is too high on them. They seem to have stayed around the same price for the last few years. I got my Elan 7 for $5 from someone on the forum. It's an excellent camera. The AF is always spot on, it's the perfect size and weight with a 50mm on it and it's so quiet. I also have an Elan IIe with the eye AF which actually works well, but the camera just seems a little dated compared to my Elan 7. I figured the Elan would be a good camera to have when the baby gets here. I might go ahead and pick up a 50mm f1.2 for it and clal it a day.

I have the Elan 7NE and although I haven't used it in a while it is pretty slick. I also have an EOS-1 and and EOS 630! All were bought a few years ago for peanuts on eBay. My manual focus SLR's (I had a bunch by different makers) are now all gone. Given away. I haven't shot any film in the last year due to lack of time but I intend to this year. Also use a Mamiya MF which is as heavy as a truck. I have to really be in the mood to haul that thing around!! I so prefer the larger negatives, though.

The 7NE is the last one, isn't it? That's the rare one if I remember correctly.
I've started unloading some cameras I don't use and am hopefully going to pick up an RZ67 in 2020. Fingers crossed, at least. Haha.

Speaking of the EOS 3...this was from my second roll with mine. I shot Ektar for the first time in years and I'm really happy with how it came out.
