    For me it has been the other way around. I found an idea that I wanted to pursue and then looked for a camera that would best capture that idea. For two and a half years I have photographed the OH & Erie Canal and its environment in its evolution from trash heap of the 1940s-70s to recreational park and tourist playground of 2007-9. A Phillips 7x17 allowed me to capture the detail, shapes and perspective of the project.

    TLRs make you feel pretty creative.

    Of my current film cameras, my OM1 and 35mm f2.8 combo seem to suit me best. I have an F100 with a 35mm f2 which feels almost as good but I sort of prefer the slower and more deliberate speed of working with a fully-manual, manual focus camera.

    Of all the cameras I've ever owned, I think my favourite would be a Mamiya 7. Trading that camera was a mistake - I just used to get narked with it when trying to change film when it was mounted on the tripod. If I'd persevered with it and treated it like a bigger version of an M6, I'd probably still have it now.

    I wouldn't say any one camera makes me feel particularly creative versus any other.

    However, I definitely feel creative when I mount my 16mm f/2.8 fisheye to one of my Nikons. You have to be creative to get good images out of a fisheye! Perhaps that's one of the reasons I love this lens.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    more than anything else... my 12x20 Folmer and Schwing. But more recently, my 8x10 camera has been amazingly inspiring.

    Generally, the larger the view finder/ground glass the more creative one gets.

    Couldn't really give credit to any camera in particular; looking back at my best pictures (the ones that people liked and some bought) it is a variety of 35mm from Practika MTL3, Pentax ME to Nikon F100 then MF on Yashica D TLR and Hasselblad 500 C/M. I usually choose the camera based on the subject I want to approach. The subject steers my creative flows.

    I agree, but as I posted before the smaller the viewfinder the more likely I will take more snapshots. The larger the viewfinder, the more likely I will be to really slow down and think about the exposure and the composition.
