    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.

    Pentax Spotmatic - although, arguably, it is already considered a classic.

    I think the Nikon FM3A may one day achieve classic status.

    Photo Technique magazine published a list every year that addresses the same question. There was always TLR's, Graflexes, Nikon F's, Canon F's, Leica, Contax and some odds and ends on the list every year. It has changed over time somewhat to reflect new models that have become the newer classics. I would say that the term reflects the ones that have proven themselves thru simple great engineering and which still draw new users to this day. Look back in time and see what was being shot on the battlefield or in the news industry and you'll have a pretty good idea of the more popular ones.

    I nominate the Minolta Autocord. All the camera's can be operated with the right hand while being held in the left hand. And of course there's the awesome 75mm Rokkor lens up front. Since I got mine back from Karl Bryan, it has become my favorite TLR. For 35mm, the Minolta XE-7 is pretty sweet as are the Spotmatics.

    Yashica TL Electro X ITS for its innovative (at the time) step-less electronically-controlled shutter.

    Entirely agree with the Minolta Autocord. I have had one for years, and in my opinion, it is the one Japanese twins lens reflex that can match the Rolleiflexes for lens quality.

    The Pentax Spotmatic, I mentioned this in my original post, is probably discounted my many because of its slower screwthread lens mount and lack of motordrive capability, but the Pentax Takumar lenses are excellent, and the camera fits the hand beautifully; everything seems to fall into the right place, definitely a classic for the thinking, contemplative type photographer who still believes in the "decisive moment" of film exposure, rather then the 10 frames a second types, who just press the button hoping one or two will hit the mark.
