    When I feel creative, I then visualize the end result and choose the tools that will achieve this end. Could be any one of my cameras. Maybe this is backwards?

    My XA. It's like the little camera that makes professional results.

    I would have to say that my Nikon F4s makes me feel the most creative, as there are so many different ways of using it.

    It seems some are missing the point, but hey that's all part of the it. I suppose we could get into all kinds of discussions centering around locus of control, whether you are internal or external, does this lend itself to be swayed by the camera rather than the creative thought process blah blah blah.

    Indeed if I have a certain idea and it needs a specific camera for the job I use it. On the other hand whenever I pick up my Rollei it just seems to infuse me with creative energy. Gee do I have a Rollei fetish or maybe it's the smell of the leather case LOL.

    A Rollei fetish is much more socially acceptable than other fetishes you could have had!

    Eric, I'm with you, my Rollei piques my photographic creativity every time I pick it up. The 4x5 is the workhorse and the 8x10 comes out when I have patient sitters, but the Rollei gets me creatively revved every time.

    I'd like a Rollei but my 5x7 is quite enjoyable to work with.

    It is during discussions like these that I wish that I had been born independently wealthy instead of being so incredibly handsome.

    Me too.

    So it's my Rolleicord or My RB67.
