    My eyes. I know sounds cheeky but I have never failed to capture the perfectly exposed image with them. Can't say the same for any photo equipment.
    Technological society has succeeded in multiplying the opportunities for pleasure, but it has great difficulty in generating joy. Pope Paul VI

    So, I think the "greats" were true to their visions, once their visions no longer sucked. Ralph Barker 12/2004

    A toss up between my Nikon Coolscan 9000 and my Domke F-6.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    The big darkroom trashcan. It's the one thing that has most improved my work...

    Seriously, probably the things which have sentimental value due to how they were acquired. Not sure they're "beloved" but the people who gave them to me are:
    Rolleiflex 3.5
    Olympus Pen EE

    maybe a wooden spoon or a can opener or a pair of scissors all appropriated when i was a teenager ..
    all have travelled with me to 3 or 4 different darkrooms, and never gotten lost ... sometimes things are meant to be ?

    hard to say ...

    That's funny, John. And very true. If you've been at this long enough (for me over 40 years), there are those little things. You just reminded me of my dodging wand. I cut it from a wire hanger about 40 years ago. Can't get rid of it even though I've been given "fancy" dodging wands...

    jnanian, you reminded me of a couple more things.

    a one-gallon stainless steel pot that I use to mix chemicals, and the water-driven magnetic stirrer.

    both very low cost. the pot was from Ross (a seconds store) and I think the stirrer set me back 50 cents at a rummage sale.

    nice thing about having my own mixing pot is I don't have to keep secrets from my family any more (about what I've been doing with the Revere-ware)...

    Light meters seem to be very dear to people's hearts. I have acquired several but use my Leningrade constantly. It is accurate, simple and very tough.
