    What do you shoot with?

    That shot of the kid is fantastic! Not sure I could have gotten that with my Mamiya RZ67, I'm impressed.

    can we get details? Lens, film, if you remember any settings?

    I've been using an Exa too lately:

    exa by berangberang, on Flickr

    I've run about five rolls through it this summer, but haven't developed them yet so I don't really know if it has been a success. But it is rather small, rather quiet, and you can shoot "from the hip" without losing the ability to compose your shot, thanks to the WLF.
    It is also rather friendly looking and sometimes people ask you about it.

    I also use Contax Slrs (RX and Aria) with Zeiss lenses as well as the Konica Hexar AF with its fixed 35 wide f2 lens. For shooting street you don't really need top shelf equipment. You do need reliable equipment. The Contax cameras are/were top shelf and reliable. I don't find them so loud since I shoot mostly in NYC where the street noise seems to drown any shutter noise out. The Hexar is quiet and very fast. It, for me, is the very best camera for street photography since it is small and fast.

    I use either a Minox 35GL, a Yashica Electro 35GSN (but I'm going to sell that), or my lovely Olympus 35SP. I think I'd be too self-conscious to use my SLR (and I'm impressed by some of the gear people in this thread have used on the street), but the eccentric WTF-factor is probably high enough that I reckon I could get away with using my Zeiss Ikon Nettar folder. Must give it a go.

    Most often one of two Chinon K-mount bodies with my Voigtlander 40mm f/2 lens. In the same drawer the alternatives are my Contax g1 with 45mm or 28mm, or Konica fs-1 with 40mm f/1.8.

    Often the Contax or Konica goes for color emulsions, while the normal state of the Chinon/Voigtlander is 400 iso fomapan @320.

    The Chinon only says "klong" when shooting, very discrete, while the other two are by far more noisy having electronical film transport etc.

    More recent silliness: street with an RZ67, fisheye and 70mm film.

    No, I was not unnoticed I asked permission for this one as the lens was about 2 feet from her knee and I'm pretty sure from the expression that she didn't expect me to get that close!

    I think the point that some people are making is that threads like this one are rather pointless. They don't care what camera people use nor should anyone else. It is the photograph itself that matters not the device that made it. I might add that threads that ask "What is your favorite ..." are also pretty stupid.

    I too prefer a S&W 38.

    Hear hear. Ya takes ya camera, ya composes yer scene, ya has yer photo. Some are easier for some purposes but you should be able to take (most) photos with any camera.

    Gonna disagree with you on the .38 though
