    The perfect camera should have selective depth of field, automatically adjust to a broad range of contrast levels. Operate immediately at the speed of light and have direct access to a high speed filing system.

    Lucky me, I have had two since the day I was born. My eyes, one of the best gifts ever given to mankind!

    I've been contemplating this from the angle: "If all my cameras were to disappear and a genie in a bottle appeared and gave me one wish - any single camera that I asked for..."

    I would choose the camera that I use most: The Hasselblad 503Cx (or possibly one of the more "updated" versions of the same - possibly ...).

    I just love this puppy. Flaws and idiosyncrasies ... of course, but I really wouldn't want anything else. One learns to work with, and integrate - and feel perfectly comfortable with - the "oddities".

    If the wish was expanded to two ... I'd probably go with a Leica M6 - or whatever that model is up to now... Three - I've been "watching" the Ebony 4 x 5. Four - or maybe "two" or something ... The Olympus OM-4 system I have now ...
    Carpe erratum!!

    True perfection is imperfect or something like that...depends what you want to do and where. I'd never want to be without LF but otherwise a rollfilm rangefinder (Mamiya 6 or 7) with interchangeable lenses is probably the best-reasonably compact and light too.

    I would too. In fact, a gift from the tooth fairy is about the _only_ way I'll ever obtain one (with a couple of backs - please).

    Truly, dr bob.
