Kodak 2D, I have both 8x10 and 5x7. Pretty much a couple of wooden tanks.
amen... I have a full plate 2d (slightly larger than 5x7) with a 5x7 back and a 4x5 back and a couple lenses. It has been backpacking with me, hiking in the rain, taken all over Texas, in the back seat, in the trunk, banged on doorways, had pinholes taped, and it just keeps on going. Possibly one of the most indestructible well built cameras ever. And just as an aside--- it was cheap enough that if I DO manage to drop it off a cliff or something, I can just go find another one.

* When I started using 8x10, it amazed me how many shots were close to the car. *
Except for architectural work, any 80-100 year old view camera will do the job. I use a Rochester Universal View, made by Rochester Optical Company division of Kodak, and it works fine for portraits and landscapes. That is the only 8X10 I've ever owned. In 5X7, which I use much more, I've used an Ansco, a Seneca, and a Burke & James. The B&J has full movements, which can be nice in the studio, but for landscapes I prefer the Ansco first, and the Seneca second.
