    ...but very few SLRs back in the 60's and 70's offered any faster X-sync speed, except for the metal focal plane vertical travel shutter cameras like the the Topcon D-1, with 1/125 X-sync !

    We should not limit ourselves to 135 format...I nominate the Hasselblad 500C, the Rolleiflex TLR, the Mamiya RB67 as other classics.

    And (ahem), the LX.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Well, I agree with that with the winder or motor, but by itself, I found the handling delightful!

    Horses for courses, but I find the positions of the controls on the OM1 et al far better than other cameras (Nikkormat excluded of course).

    I bet those who complain aren't left-handed.

    Not necessarily...I named the SRT and the Argus, neither of which is my favorite. And many have mentioned the Pentax K1000, but how about the Spotmatic?

    Usually, what turns classic is what you see alot of. Instamatics, Brownies, Canon 300D will mostlikely be more of classics then Pentax 67 or Linhof technicas or Leica m2. Because most people wouldn't be able to pick them out in a lineup.

    I forgot about the LX. There was a KX too.

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    Values on the Spice Girls Polaroid are sure to skyrocket.
