Each year I trade up a level, and get cameras which are more special. I have a couple literal "one-of-a-kinds" which I have taken a lot of time to restore.
I have shot with pretty much anything which holds film, and I enjoy them all. Today I was shooting with a Hello Kitty camera that cost me $1. In addition to the Hello Kitty camera, I was trying out a Nikkor SLR (oddball early Nikon F). "Best" is in the eye of the beholder, but as a repair person, and a collector of heavily used pro gear of all makes, I find Nikon to be the most sturdily built, and the most flexible. I also like the style of he early Nikon F and S cameras.
