Hey, maybe my Graflex isn't so bad with its tall chimney finder and 2-eye focusing.
BTW, I was recently bitten severely by my little 2x3 RB Ser. B. The back rotates but the mirror box is, as it should be, fixed in the body. Turns out that the mirror box vignettes with long lenses. Vignetting starts around 250 mm with the back in portrait orientation, around 500 in landscape. So much for my little Baby Bertha.
Nobody mentioned the Holga yet. The plastic piece of $hit makes some pretty interesting pictures, and is like a liberation army in escaping technical mumbo jumbo. Basically, aim, shoot, wind, repeat.
But I have never had a camera that scratched my film so badly, and needed so many modifications just to function. For example, the high tech foam that's supposed to tension both spools of film comes off in hot weather and gets wound up with the film on the take-up spool. A very interesting feature. I have to tape the back door with gaffers tape or it comes off mid-roll. I've had to polish the interior with the finest grit sandpaper I could find, and then use coarse paper to get it even finer, in order to avoid scratching the film along the film guide, and it STILL scratches my film (I had two of them do this).
So, I gave up, put one of the cameras in the street, and ran it over with my car. Felt great. :)
But, to me that is by far the worst camera design of all time. There is no comparison.
After Chernobyl, and then the fall of the Iron Curtain, imprisoned schizoid peat diggers were put in charge of production while marketing was taken over by refugees from the mountains of Albania.
Any camera without the shutter release on the left side is not as good as an Exacta. I think the Argus C3 has to be the worst design, a hollowed out brick. The camer itself isnot bad, just the shape.
