    Leica MP, Summicron 35 asph, Tri-X and a hydrogen bomb to set it all back to normal

    Desert island camera: I once was stuck on Catalina with a Pentax Spotmatic IIa and there wasn't a 500 battery on the island.

    Emergency cache: For a few years, I kept a Contax IIIg with Sonnar 50/1.5 in a stash at my cabin in case I got stuck there without a camera.

    For medium format my Yashica D. For 35mm my Exakta VX. Both with Tri-X. Totally manual. No batteries required.

    Hmmm. Master View and a Cooke triple, TriX320 and PMK, and a schlode of Polywarmtone, and a dime bag of glycin. Oh, and the Masterview 8x10 is medium format. (4x5 is the new 135).

    I also will go with the RB67 but with a 90mm lens. Maybe some Tmax 400.

    I'd take my trusty Zero Image pinhole, 20 rolls of film, my iPhone (for timing exposures!), Sekonic, airbed, sunnies, suncream, matches, KY lube, crayons, charcoal and canvas... not just cameras. I'd be there for quite a while I imagine, and would like to have variety creating art.
    “The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
    Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
    the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see."

    Hard choice.

    I want to say exactly what Suzanne R. said...

    I also want to say a Linhof Super Technika 2x3 with a normal lens, or maybe a Mamiya Press Super 23, with FP4, Plus-X, or T-Max 100...

    It would be very hard to leave my beloved Nikon Fs and Canon F-1's and their fast fixed-length lenses and Delta 3200 or Fuji Press 800 behind...

    A 6x6 TLR and Tri-X might be perfect...

    A 6x6 SLR such as a Hassy or M645 Pro TL with Tri-X would make a lot of sense as well...

    I also hate to be without a view camera and film holders loaded with FP4 at my disposal...

    In the end, I think I would compromise on a Graflex RB 5x7 with a normal lens, and Tri-X 320.

    For film developer, HC-110.

    For printing paper, Oriental VCFBII, 11x14.

    For paper developer, Ilford PQ.

    Enlarger: Durst or DeVere 8x10. (I know I would not have 8x10 film, but I could proof two 5x7's at once this way.)

    P.S. The thread that I started was not about choosing one camera to keep, but about how strange it is that our lovely film equipment would be close to worthless if liquidated these days.

    GF670 and Portra 400. I don't actually own one, so this should be a desert island with a camera shop.
    Have/had Mamiya RB, Rollei 6003, Hasselblad, Nikonos, Canon EOS, Leica R, Fuji Instax...and some other stuff

    RB67, 127mm lens, Pan F+ (I assume this is a tropical deserted island, not some temperate rain forest island)
