    - All mechanical.
    - Bright View finder 100% coverage with magnification factor 1.
    - NO
    info on the viewfinder with a nice focusing screen, pref interchangeable.
    - MLU with an easy slider or switch. OM-1n's switch is not that comfortable.
    - 1s - 1/4000s: Higher sync. But, I am happy with 1/1000s.
    - Self timer
    - Hot shoe + PC Sync.
    --
    - Lens with DOF preview button + Hood + contrast filter/UV filter.

    All you need is film + a good incident meter. My personal choice is Gossen Digisix.
    OM-1n: Do I need to own a Leica?
    Rolleicord Va: Humble.
    Holga 120GFN: Amazingly simple yet it produces outstanding negatives to print.

    1. Excellent viewfinder and focusing screen
    2a. Excellent ergonomics
    2b. Availability of excellent lenses at FL that I prefer

    Everything else is a plus but not a must have. OK, I wouldn't touch a camera with everything above that had no manual mode, if such camera exists at all.

    Nikon F3 and Leicaflex SL rule my world, though the SL has a prism problem (desilvering, I think; it's yellow). I would love to give Pentax LX a test run, but I've never crossed paths with one.

    A box to keep the darkness in, a film holder, a hole for a lens.

    You are such a gear head, requiring a hole for a lens when just a hole would do!

    I forgot one

    5) A means to focus and compose the image - rangefinder (pref with parallax correction), groundglass or (for Minox) chain.

    I guess I'm guilty of this too. But you have a point, and pinholes make beautiful pictures.

    “What features do you consider essential on a camera?”

    1. Image Type – must be able to produce the type of images I need (still vs. motion) (color vs. black & white) (2-D vs. 3-D)

    2. Image quality – must be able to produce the quality of images I need (sometimes Holga quality; sometimes large format quality)

    3. Reliability & Dependability – must be able to perform when needed

    4. Survivability – must be able to survive and perform in the shooting environment (on land vs. underwater)

    ... that fit together. Separately they aren't of much use!
