Olympus OM-10's bought a couple of them new and both ended up in the dust bin within a year. Also an OM-1 that a member here traded to me, he claimed good condition, needed cla, seals, meter shot, etc., it's in a box for parts to repair my other OM-1's.

Oh for me it is a Seagull TLR. I liked the shots I got from it but the shutter died after a few rolls from almost new!
Rollieflex TLR that I just got, I'm sure they are probably good cameras, but the one I got feels like was stored in sand, all gritty and not at all soothe, total disappointment.
Before the Rolleiflex my biggest disapointment was the Nikon F4 that shoots color negative film just fine and if that is what I shot there would be no complaints from me, but it underexposes just enough that slides come out annoyingly dark. What really sucks is that I like the layout of the camera. I should get it serviced, but I'm just too lazy.

Hey! Add me to the Leica M crowd. I purchased a M4-P with an older lens. The Summicron did not compare to the Canon FDs I was use to using and it temporarily jammed during a trip to europe. Traded it for a new F-1.

Lubitel 2, the one I got must have been left outside for a couple of years. Even still focusing was really difficult with the goofy prism set up. And it was just cheaply made. I could not get any descent results with it.

They're made that way.

Not a bad camera, just not mine.
i hate the red shutter button on olympus xa2: i must find the right way to press it...
Holga. Lens is too good for me, and camera in general is an uninteresting plastic pile without character. Just cheap Chinese trash. And terribly overpriced. They ought to cost no more than $5. Give me a Brownie over a Holga any day.

Yashica FX-103. The leatherette just rubbed off and away, this occurred many years ago when the camera was newer. It also died on me after 15 years of use, should have started with a K1000 - they never seem to die.
