    Rolleiflex 2.8F for the practicality and sheer loveliness of it. But my real (and less practical) favorite is my 8x10. I am never happier taking photos than when shooting the 8x10.

    My favorite, because of all the time I spent with it (actually two of them) would be my Canon T-90s. I used these when I was working shooting motorsports and although that was many years back they still just fall into my hands and are so completely automatic and intuitive to use. Like a couple of old friends.
    Various Canons and Nikons. A Mamiya and a Bronica. A couple Brownies, and a Couple of Argus' (Argi?)

    I don't have a favourite per se, but I have a special place in my heart for my YashicaMat. It heralded my return to film based photography...

    As a 24 year old the first proper camera I received at 16 was an Olympus om4 with a 50mm 1.4 others have come and gone, but it just feels 'right'. Secondly I would have to add the Bronica rf645.

    There's no question the best ever camera is the RB67.

    My Mamiya RB67 ProSD. No batteries to fail, and a fine workhorse with big enough negatives to print easily up to 20x24 or a bit bigger depending on film used. Unless Im doing journalism, its the RB, plus the flash sync on any speed. They only issue is the 1/400th sec limit, but its a very rare day its an issue for me. Should get some ND filters actually.

    Topcon RE2, which I had for 20 years or so. Only ever had two lenses, the standard and a 135mm. I really loved the quality of the solid body, the metering and those superb lenses. It never missed a beat all around Europe and into Outback Australia. One day I traded it in for a field telescope for birdwatching and regretted it ever since. Must've been mad.

    Nikon F4.

    Though There are far more modern cameras (regarding AF, etc.), or more puristic ones, I just love it. It was the cam that tossed me into the world of analog photography. I took it up with a 35/2 lens mounted and fell for it. And besides all this rather emotional stuff, I seriously find its knobs and wheels really useful and well designed, haptics are awesome and its meter is just great (spot, but matrix as well). Even though I have a Konica Hexar AF (also with a 35/2 lens which is much superior to the Nikkor) and I am about to switch over to the MF fraction, I just take the F4 every once in a while and shoot some rolls og film - old love never dies...

    cheers,
    sewarion
