I started film photography in November and since then I've gotten a more than a handful of cameras. Started with 1970s SLRs and moved my way into rangefinders, which I think I'm starting to prefer.

This one, purchased this week, is the jewel of my collection though (despite the annoyance I mentioned in a separate thread):


It's just a fantastic size and feels great in the hand. The Yashica Electro 35, my first rangefinder, is just too big, despite looking gorgeous. It's an attention catcher though, which has its plusses and minuses. For the truly discreet shooter, I use my Olympus XA, even though the rangefinder is nigh impossible to see sometimes.

I'm probably leaning more towards camera collecting than shooting, but cameras from before the 1980s are so beautiful in their own right.
