    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.

    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.

    Me too.

    So it's my Rolleicord or My RB67.

    Probably my Nikon F FTn. With all its quirks, it just seems right.

    Currently, the RB67 and 50mm lens. Seems that the newest format/field of view in the old camera closet piques my interest and vision.

    Definitely my girl's Mamiya C330, though I tend to get more 'rowdy' with my Bronica ETRSi. Both waist and prism enjoyed equally on each.

    Actually, thinking it over once again my Zeiss Super Ikonta 530/2 is at the top of the pack!

    The less electronics the better. My choice is the Rollei T.

    Oddly, it's the feeling of a freshly unwrapped roll of 120 film in my hand that makes me feel creative. Never felt that way about a 35mm cassette or sheet film holder. I like to put it in my Hasselblad, Rollei TLR or Fuji 6x9. Makes no difference to me.
