    If you were a camera...

    If you were to be reincarnated as a camera, what would you be?

    I'll start with Speed Graphic.

    This should be an interesting thread... Please think carefully before you post.

    Moma don't take my Kodachrome away!
    Oops, Kodak just did!
    For all practical purposes, they've taken Kodak away.

    I'd have to be a Nikon F3HP since it's my favorite 35mm camera.

    hmmm...something kinda cheap and sloppy, not the most high-end camera in the world, yet well made, versatile and capable of producing nice results if you put the time and effort in...I would have to say a Graphic as well. I'd like to be a 2x3 Speed with an RH-8 back, I think...and I would like to be shot by a photojournalist every day, not put on the shelf as a curiosity.

    If I had a second choice, it would be a Mamiya Press Super 23. Same basic idea as the 2x3 Speed Graphic, but a bit different.

    Kalart Press Camera.

    Stunningly beautiful,totally advanced for it's time, totally obsolete when made. A great piece of engineering, and less than 5% of them still work.

    Kinda like the Fiat of cameras. That's me.

    Exakta VX iia, because that was my first serious camera, and I am kind of old fashioned in a lot of ways.

    4x5 film box with a hole poked into it, one sheet of film inside, a lens taped on the outside, and a cardboard flap for a shutter
