You’ve got one. I’m sure you have. That’s right, that list of cameras and equipment that you have lying in a draw or, filed away in the dusty corner of your mind. I read somewhere that no self respecting blog should be without a list, and after an exchange of comments with Simon Hawketts the other day I have decided to offer up mine to ridicule and amusement for the camera-wielding masses whomever you may be.
Let me just say that the list is dynamic it’s either growing or I change my mind. There is no 1st choice. The order is random, just as they came to me while writing this post so here goes
Two reasons,for this One It was one of the first SLR’s I ever held in my hands. Secondly Just look at any of the portraits by Jane Bown.
I just want one I’ve always liked the F3 there is just something about it This one is in Champagne.
Why in all the world would I want an insanely expensive camera that can only take black and white shots? I must want my head testing. I still want one. Please send dona…Only joking ;0)
I’ve always wanted one. I’ve seen some great portraits taken with this camera.
The wedding Photographers go to camera of the 70’s and 80’s. Love the oversized SLR look and that wooden handle…
If it was good enough for Neil and Buzz then… what am I saying I’ve only seen one in a museum and will never own one. Unless I win a lottery or some such. I do own a 203FE so if I close my eyes I can pretend I am an astronaut :0)
This would be My MP’s companion just digital.
I should have written Mamiya 6. I remember reading about and,seeing a 6 many years ago and never forgot it’s overgrown rangefinder look.
I almost bought one. I just went for the D800 instead.
I’d love a pinhole camera .These wooden beauties would fit the bill nicely
So there we have it. Please feel free to post your own list in the comments section. It’s always fun to read other peoples views.
Thanks for your time.
