    I used to have a Voigtlander Vito I. But that died. Now I don't have an "everyday" camera. But I need to get one. Maybe a Minox 35 or something like that.

    My daily users are my F80, my FT2 and my ETRsi. Depends on where I am going. If I am heading out on a hike, the FT2 comes along for sheer durability and unbreakableness. For street I like the F80 or the ETRsi. IDEALLY I like to take the ETRsi whenever I can since I get so much more real estate out of it.

    That's the attraction of the Perkeo--6x6 in a package smaller than most 35mm rangefinders. I've seen pictures of a late version that actually includes a coupled rangefinder, but I haven't seen an actual example for sale.

    I mentioned my fanny pack mini system in the 'missed opportunities' thread but I also like to grab my old Nikon F Photomic with a 35 to 105 zoom. It ain't small or light but it can be tossed over a shoulder, is pretty versatile in case I run across something unexpected and is just a totally stylin' rig.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    My biggest gripe is that all the shots I can envision seem to need more than the usual XXmm lenses that you get on most compact cameras.

    The rule is that no matter what equipment you bring with you, you are certain to run across the perfect, once-in-a-lifetime shot for the single piece that you left in drawer at home.

    You'll find it listed as "Flotsam's Law" in the Focal Encyclopedia.

    I don't bring a camera with me on an everyday basis, as it is frowned upon for security (and safety) reasons where I work.

    But when I do bring a camera, it's likely to be a Perkeo II, or a Zeiss Ikon, or a Zenobia. Medium format folders all...

    David,

    What's the lens like on that Perkeo? Never heard of one till today. Looks interesting and affordable MF camera.

    I bought a Contax T3 for Xmas which has the sharpest lens I've ever had personally. Very pocketable and great for travel.

    Chris

    David, did you get my email request for the traveling portfolio?

    The basic these days is either a d* (for family events, etc) or the Nikon F with 35mm or 24mm lens (if I think it's going to be reasonably scenic), based upon compactness considerations. I keep a Kodak Tourist II with Tri-X in the desk at work. I love the F, but pocketable it's not, and if you add lenses your pockets start to get kind of bulky.

    I suppose I could put a flash-bracket on my B&J 5x7, and keep it around the office instead of the tourist, but I haven't seen much at work recently that needed that big a negative.
