    The best film camera money can buy?

    Wouldn't the "best" camera be the one that sells the most copies? Could be the canon AE-1? Hehe

    I wouldn't have even offered this guy $100 for that ugly thing, I don't care how great a picture is if I feel like I look like a weirdo holding it I don't want it. Some photography is about perception, if they perceive you to be good, you have more options with your subject.

    Well, it actually worked...





    Go me!

    If I had the money I would get it, they sell 110 again, would be fun to shoot.

    It's the subject that makes the picture.
    Very true, but the photographer has to be there - in the right place - at the right time, with a camera.
    I'm into painting with light - NOT painting by numbers!

    Best selling doesn't make it the best. Canon has sold boatloads of its various EOS and Rebel cameras. Good cameras? Yes. Best cameras? Maybe, but probably not, especially with their entry level cameras.

    I think trying to nail down the best camera ever would be dIifficult, maybe impossible, to decide. Best made? Best features? Best lenses? Easiest to use? And nearly everyone has different opinions on what they think would be the best.

    I could list maybe 10 cameras that I think might be the best, and they're all different from each other.

    I believe that Kodak sold even more Instamatic 104s. Using the logic that the best selling cameras are the best one leads to the conclusion the Instamatic 104 was the best camera ever made.

    There is a reasonable likelihood though that more good photographs have been taken with Instamatic 104s than any other camera .
