This is funny. It's like a group of fishermen trading their "the one that got away" stories.
For the last couple of years, I have tried to make a real commitment to always having a camera with me. To this end I put together a "carry-it-everywhere" system that consists of a small, padded fanny pack that holds a Leitz/Minolta CL with 40mm and 90mm lenses, a tiny Gossen Digisix light meter, a little Sunpack flash, an Ultrapod, a couple of filters and a cable release. A few film cans, riveted to the strap hold extra film. This makes for a pretty versatile system that is small, light and self-contained enough that there are very few excuses not to grab it every time that I go out the door.
Does anyone know of a currently made non-digi pocketable camera that has decent glass and allows manual exposure?
