I was just looking at an old advertisement which had 'Gene Smith using, and extolling the virtues of, an Olympus Pen F. I beleive that other famous shooter, John Nanian also uses a Pen F from time to time!
“Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”

I don't really associate a certain camera with any of my personal favorites.
I wouldn't normally either. However, I have recently become aware of the work of John Gay, a German immigrant to the UK in the 1930s. He predominantly used a Rolleiflex and his pictures of England from the 1930s to the 1970s are some of the best pictures I have ever seen and are proof that simple equipment is all that is needed.
I suppose the fact that I have only seen them presented in the square format reinforces my association of him with the Rolleiflex. If they were cropped to a rectangle I think it would not have stuck in my mind.

Moriyama Daido - a well respected and known Japanese photographer, has done a lot of work with various point-n-shoot cameras, many of which he has been given or borrowed according an short documentary piece I saw about him.
