It has taken us quite some time to figure out with which cameras we had the best 'flow' experience - in the sense of the word as coined by professor Csikszentmihalyi. For us these happen to be the Optika, the Pecoflex and the Kiev 60 with WLF. They seem to suit our personalities and personal needs best. When working with one of these, we seem to forget that there is a 'machine' between us and what we're doing. The camera becomes part of the flow and the concentration on the job is 100%. (I am not describing it in the best possible way, but I'm giving it my best shot.) These are not necessarily the best cameras ever made, but that's not the point. We've had a Linhof Technika, but never really got friendly with it. Didn't like the knobs, for starters. Instead, we make do with the much cheaper Graphic View II - still usable in very cold weather. At the moment I have a very beautiful Linhof 220 RS with a razor sharp Technikar, but it just hasn't got flow. Never in the world we would want to have a Hassy, since we don't like the way it holds or is operated, even though the lens quality is legendary. One of us likes Rollei type TLR's, but the other gets seasick just holding it. And so forth, and so on. Now we were wondering if other people had the same kind of experiences with their camera(s)? Which camera has the best 'flow' potential for you and can you explain why it suits you so well. It would be interesting to hear your personal stories.
