    I am stranded on a nearly deserted island(s) (the Falkland Islands). But we have a great postal service courtesy of the RAF. I have to get by with 3 Nikon Fs, a Nikkormat, Fuji GW690, Mamiya RB67, Bessa L, Contax II and several others. Does this count?

    I would take one of the newer nikon dslrs with the GPS function on it so I can take a photo of myself holding a sign that says "get me the hell out of here", get rescued, sell the camera, buy a mamiya 7 and 80 f/4 and a lot of portra. boom.

    Gertrude Stein's final words, uttered on her death bed, came to me when I read this post. Hoping for a glimpse of the hereafter she was asked "What is the answer?" To which she replied "What is the question?"

    It can be seen from the diversity of the answers that there is no one camera or film that fits all conditions.
    A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.

    I'd bring my Koni-Omega Rapid 100 and whatever film I had handy (likely Tri-X). This way, when I'm not shooting I can use the K-O to crack open coconuts, club small animals, etc In 35mm I'd bring my Argus C3 for much the same reason.
    i can't wait to take a picture of my thumb with this beautiful camera.

    A really rare and sought after Leica.

    Leicaphiles (sp?) can find you anywhere.

    My Rolleiflex T and some Tri X 400. Or my Olympus Pen EE that way I can get 80 frames out of a 36 roll.

    Aw .. just the camera. No film? No processing tanks? No chemicals? No enlarger? No trays? No paper?

    It would be real quiet for you on that island.

    Deardorff 8x10 with 300mm Commercial Ektar. FP4+ with PyroCatHD. A boatload of Cyanotype Chems ad some really pretty Arches or the like paper.

    Git back to basics.

    i guess it would be a home made 3x4 box camera and a pallet of expired fb 5x7 paper.
    i wouldn't need any film, and the images would vanish soon after i make them,
    unless i figure out a way to fix them in sea water and sand ...
    but if what jason suggested is true that 4x5 is the new 35mm,
    then i would use a home made 10x12 camera,
    and a pallet of 8x10 paper ...
    im empty, good luck
