    Cameras the Masters used

    Cameras are merely tools for a master photographer. It is still interesting to know what cameras and formats photographers have used. For example Cartier-Bresson used 35mm exclusively and used Leicas and A Minolta 35CL. Diane Arbus liked the Mamiya C3 ,if I am correct, preferring it to a twin lens Rolleiflex. Ansel Adams worked in 35mm rarely but used a Hasselblad in addition to various 4x5s and 8x10s. Anyone else?

    And AA used a contarex IIRC for sometime. The cameras the masters used are plentiful and easily identifiable with a little googling.
    Thank you.

    Unfortunately I found out many years ago that owning the same cameras the "masters" use wasn't any help since I haven't got their talent.

    Richard Avedon used a Rolleiflex for medium format and an 8x10 Deardorff. Stephen Shore uses an 8x10 Deardorff with a 305mm G-Claron. Edward Weston used a Century Universal 8x10 for his Guggenheim work, as did Ansel Adams during the 1940's. Sally Mann used a Toyo M-II 8x10 for a while, then a Phillips, now some ancient plate camera. Alec Soth also uses a Phillips, and sometimes an Ebony 8x10. Lee Friedlander likes his Hasselblad Super Wide. William Eggleston uses a Graflex Press camera with a roll film back. Keith Carter used a Hasselblad Arcbody until his health made him change to digital.

    Dorothea Lange used a Graflex Model D.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Brett Weston used an 11x14 view camera for most his work, but also a Rollei SL66, his brother Cole used a Calumet green monster 8x10. Arnold Newman used a Hasselblad. Abelardo Morell uses a Sinar P system view camera.
