    The Top 20 Cameras Of All-Time in Shutterbug

    Am I the only one who found this list disappointing? Three Leicas, two Rolleis, and yet no mention of Nikon or Graflex? Has no one over there heard of newspapers?

    Have they listed the top five yet? MHV's links show 20-6.

    The emphasis of this selection seems to be mainly on cameras you wouldn't really want to use, with a couple of notable exceptions, but that transformed photography in some important way.

    Having not seen the top five yet, I would have to hope and assume a Speed Graphic hits the list...

    I presume the top 5 will be in next month's issue (August). Couldn't see anything on the S'bug website.
