My choice not yours, everyone forgets Leica made very good SLRs
Good to see so many people choosing Olympus for their SLR choice.
Currently only really shooting with two cameras anyway, so I'll go with:
Olympus OM1n. Small, light, lovely lenses, good looks.
Kodak Retina II. Pocket-sized, amazing lens, can beat people to death with it.
Minolta xd11 and Minolta Autocord
Canon EOS-1n RS and Bronica ETRSi
......Pentax Auto 110 SLR
......Minox III (8x11mm)
......Nikon F2 (meterless)
...... Mamiya RB67 Pro S
...... Fuji GW690III
...... Pacemaker Speed Graphic
...... Sinar F1
All but the Pentax 110 will survive an enemy EMP. I choose the RB67 because I prefer 6x7 and I like its macro capability and revolving back.
Aside from the little Pentax SLR, these are all 100% mechanical, 100% manual cameras.
I'd go with the F-1N, and my RZ67.
If just 35mm then the F-1N, and Leica M4-P
very easy... several years ago i sold down my collection and now have only two cameras [and an RF body that i am having trouble parting with].
nikkormat ft3 w/ 50mm f1.8
rolleiflex 3.5f planar
however, this thread is really causing my GAS to flare up...
Nikon F2, Deardorff V8, based on utility.
Contax II, Linhof ST IV, based on sentiment.
Hmmm..this is tricky ! I'd go with one 35mm and one MF, so I'd choose:
F3HP and leave the M6
RB67 and leave the 500CM, 500EL, C330
Mamiya 6: Go anywhere, travel camera. Quick to use, light weight, built in meter.
Hasselblad 503: Everything else.
As much as I do not like to think about it, this thread will become relevant when I finally downsize to move.
The current house is much bigger than the house we will retire into.
So a LOT of my "stuff" has to be sold off.
So which of my X cameras of various formats from 35mm to 6x6 to 4x5 to keep, and which of my 5 enlargers to keep?
downsize from all my over 15 cams to only 2 of them...
I will keep my M4 and my Minolta XD7/XD11 ... and the Pentax MX, the R7, the 500CM, the F3 of course and ....
My film camera choice
Retina late model without the meter. IIc? It's a shelf queen in my mancave ;-)
I'd shoot both of these
I get to sell stuff to get a different film camera?
I'd be shooting the C33
Off Topic: Does it need to be film?
I'm shooting the D7200 and foundling the Ftn a couple of times a month.
I've had the Ftn since about 1970 give or take. I'll get my son to sit it on my casket. I'll have another Mamiya C33x at some point. Loved the C33 I had while my buddy was on the Asian senior trip in the late 60s.
The Nikon FE I bought for art college in 1987, and still love, and the Mamiya 7 I just got.
Do I get to have all the best lenses?
