    I'm 80 years, three months, and 25 days, the most ancient so far in this survey. The Leica M4 I bought new is little more than half as old, the Nikon gear, mostly bought used, is both older and newer. For convenience, much shooting is done digitally, but for quality, large format B&W is still the way to go. Those cameras don't have to be as new as the Leica and Nikons to perform well.

    In me 40's, but gettin closer to the 50's.....

    I like my 35mm gear (Minolta manual focus and Minolta Rokkor glass), but like Jeff Kubach lately i'm shooting more 120 (6x7) through my Mamiya RB67 Pro-S (that is *when* i'm actually shooting - in a slump these days....).

    I'm 66. Started shooting film when I was about 8. Had a number of periods where for years I did nothing at all in photography. Now I'm just happy as can be that I can purchase and use all this wonderful equipment that I could only look at when I was younger.

    E., I didn't know that you were an old fart! I'm a young 51 myself.

    My Stereo Realist is from the 1950's. I also own a Zeiss Ikon Contaflex 2 from the 50's and a Zeiss Ikon Contessa with a frozen shutter from the 60's. That's it for 35mm cameras. My oldest piece of photographic gear is from the 1940's, a 14" Kodak Commercial Ektar lens that I use on my Wehman 8x10 camera.

    I'm at an age where it's a good argument if I am in my late mid 40s or early late 40s. My enlargers are good decades older than I am. I have cameras at least twice as old as I am and some even more.

    I'm mostly a 35mm shooter but occasionally medium format - depending on my mood and willingness to lug around a heavy camera.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    The oldest guy mostly shoots digital, what does that say about the rest of us dinosaurs?

    I'm new here (waving!). I'm in my 50s. Been shooting 35mm since 1971. Got my first darkroom in '72. Have shot 120, 126 & digital. I bought a Rebel t1i outfit a couple years back, used it a few times, then eBayed it. Am looking to get my oldest Yashica manual SLRs spruced up and get back to shooting and back to some darkroom work.

    Gotten to be so old that I cant remember... but i do remember (of the times in the early fifties) going 'out with the old Deardorf (and about 12 of Ilford's glass plates in a 'recycled' WWII satchell) for a day with my mentor...

    ('Twas in the days when the Ilford Exposure Tables were more common than hand held exposure meters)
