    Oh yeah, I forgot: me. Still do, as a matter of fact.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Cheryl Jacobs Nicolai seems to get pretty good results from 645 :

    Obviously the key is to find a camera no 'master' has made famous so that you can carve your own niche with it.

    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.

    Aaron Siskind and Laura Gilpin each used a Meridian 45B at some point in their long respective careers.

    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.
