I have but two on the list, AE-1 and F3, but I have 4 AE-1's and two F3's so I have six on the list. :) There shoulda been an APS and a 110 on there too. I've got more odd looks from my Pentax Auto 110 than anything else.

For odd but approving looks, nothing beats a TLR. I don't have a Rollei though one is on my "one day" list but my Yashicamat 124 suffices fine for the looks. And unlike the 110 you can readily get film for it, AND print to 16x20 from it with nearly zero visible grain, if so inclined.

And don't forget my Teenage Age Mutant Turtles 110 camera.

Uh-oh. Sounds like you got a knockoff. It's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I hope you didn't pay much.;);)

I don't have a SWC :( This is like a camera equivalent of penis envy...I hope I don't front up to a urinal with those damned SWC owners!

If you want to make someone with an SWC feel inadequate, turn up with a 38/4.5 Biogon on an Alpa 12. If you want to make someone with a 38/4.5 Biogon on an Alpa 12 feel inadequate, turn up with a 38/4.5 Biogon on a Century Graphic.

Of the list I have one. The Pentax 67. Just recently acquired, and going to shoot the first roll of film today.

I've also got a couple of near misses. No Canon AE-1 , but I do have the A-1 and the AE-1 Program. I like the A-1 best of the two. Though it has developed, "the squeak". I've owned it since new. The AE-1 was a gift from a friend, who has "moved on" to a phone cam.

I've also got a Rolleicord V, and a III, but no Rolleiflex.

To make matters worse, people keep advertising SWC's for sale in the classifieds!

I have number 1, so I win! If you do not have a Hasselblad SWC eat your heart out.

Had one. Didn't like it.

That's a good, nicely written article, free of floss and artifice. The pic of the Nikon F3 brought back memories of my time as an owner of this beast. The pic of the 67 caused me a sudden pang of pain in the neck...

Love the XA! Everybody should own one at least once and hang on to it. A few notable omissions: the OM 1n and 2n and OM4. Still, I guess if you're pressed for 10, there has to be a sacrifice or two.

Considering that it appeared in a computer mag, I am very impressed that they devoted the space to it.

A fun list. While the only camera on the list I own is the Pentax LX, I do have three of them, with the finder base, the high point finder for the base, and two winders. They are addictive, and are unsurpassed for looooong exposures at night or fireworks.

I'd nominate for addition, since I own them :), the Voigtlander Vitessa L with the f2 Ultron lens, the Retina IIIc with the f2 Xenon, and the lovely Zeiss Ikon Contessa with the f2.8 Tessar. This last early 1950's gem has a level of fit and finish which would be very hard to equal with new cameras. Perhaps Leica.

I too was surprised to see the Canon AE-1. Great camera, but rather pedestrian for a to-be-seen-with list.

Maybe I'll make a webpage of my top 10 good-yet-affordable film cameras.

Cool cameras? The list went from weird to normal to weird.
Find it strange that it doesn't have any cameras that have a blazing red bellows.

I don't own any of these cameras, and don't lust after them, is there something wrong with me ?

No 12x20 Chamonix or whatever on the list? That's weird...

I only collect cameras once affordable. As these are the ones our world has been photographed by. Some are pedesrtrian some are weird.
