    Well of course you bought them because they work for you. They wouldn't be cool otherwise, they'd just be an affectation.

    I think you just don't understand others concept of And that's ok.

    The chrome face Zeiss Super Iknota (532/16) 6x6 was not just cool, it was the epitome of cameras. Likenesses of it were used as Christmas tree ornaments, as indications of cameras, etc. That was for more than 20 years, and long after the quit making the camera. Mostly by folks that had never used one, because they really had their idiosyncrasies, 11 exposures per roll, 5 foot minimum focus, etc. What they were in their time, I think, is the most expensive folding roll film camera, in the days when roll film cameras were the norm.

    Anybody already came up with a Night Exakta and its super-fast 80/2 lens?

    Coolest looking? Rollei SL66 simply because it looks like a Hasselblad, but a bit classier.
    Coolest to use (in my experience) Mamiya 7 with 43mm lens.

    Cool to whom and what's your definition of it?

    I'd rather have people NOT notice my camera for many reasons. I've been thinking about camera with movements AND use roll film. (Like Horseman) I just can't afford it. I'm contradicting myself, I know.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    first I bought a Pentacon Six and I thought it was a cool piece of camera. then I got a M645 1000s and I thought it had the best ergonomics and handling... then I saw Bronica SQ-A on some photo and thought to myself 'what kind of alien piece of gear is that!?' so I knew I had to get one eventually, too, just as I did.
    Now I'm eyeing a Rolllei SL66E.

    For me, the "coolest" camera has got to be my quite-possibly-one-of-a-kind Yashica 635, as it seems to be the only known 635 to come from the factory with black radial control wheels. Truth be told, I think all TLR's are cool!

    The Seagull 3d camera. http://www.camerachina.com/productxx.asp?id=1564
