Me too. I thought not having a 'mirrorless other than Leica RF' category in the poll was amusing.

Leica has been for many years the main focus of members at RFF. Therefore, I gave Leica cameras a category. It is useful to measure the votes for this category these days. "Other digital" is often SONY. As you see, Leica is the minority.

My main go-to cameras lately have either been the MP (film) or XP2. I checked 'digital other' since mirrorless cameras weren't listed in your poll.

Fuji XPro2
I actually prefer the size, weight and form of the X E2 but have been trying to become proficient with the new Pro2.

It may all be for naught as, if an X E3 does materialize, I will most likely ditch the Pro2 and the E2 in favor of two E3s.

I voted for the XP2 as "other digital camera"

I voted any other one because lately I m much involved in a project with Impossible film and use much or one of my old Polaroid sx70 or the I-1 by Impossible
Apart this project I'm not shooting so much, for easy to use I would say the Leica X1 and the M7 share the second position..

Depends on what I've been shooting, but my general walkaround camera is my MP & B&W film. I also use a medium format for a project I'm working on and an M240 for another project.

I've been really enjoying shooting on B&W film again and starting on medium format, after a few years only using digital. There's something about the process of shooting film that I really enjoy - especially the delay in seeing my images - and using my MP is a significantly more pleasant experience than my M240, which feels uncomfortable in my hand by comparison.

Been cycling through my RF bodies in 135 and 120, but surprised that I've come to like the tiny Nikon EM with 50/1.8 and 24/2.8 as my most often used in the last 6 months. I guess I need the lightness more than the brass robustness.

Depends on what you mean by "using most." Do you mean taking the most number of photos with? Or do you mean taking out to take photos most often or most days?

If you mean taking the most number of photos with, my digital Nikon D750, which I have taken thousands of photos with. This compares with maybe a couple hundred with my film cameras. I basically use the D750 whenever I may want to share the pictures with people outside of my immediate family.

If you mean taking out most often or most days, probably been using my film cameras more often. Mostly Nikon F6, although I try to give all of my film cameras -- including Nikon FM3a, Nikon FE2, Olympus OM-4Ti, Om-2n, OM-1n, etc. -- a fair workout. Also have shot several 120 rolls with several Mamiya 6 bodies, and also have shot a couple of 35mm rolls with my Olympus 35 SP bodies.

Also have been taking a few digital photos with my wife's largely unused Canon T3i -- bought an OM-EOS adapter and have been trying out my OM Zuikos on digital. Results have been OK, but not that consistent, due to difficulty in focusing precisely using viewfinder. Live-view photos with enlargement have been much more consistently focused precisely, but the process is rather cumbersome. Also, I have noticed that the Canon T3i photos have alot more chroma noise in lower light than the more modern Nikon D750 shots.

Tried the OM Zuikos on the Nikon D750 with an adapter (with glass elements). Photos shot wide open or close to wide open have a bit of a soft focus effect, while stopped down are somewhat better.

Still tempted to get a modern mirrorless body (with focus peaking) to use the OM Zuikos.

Here's an odd mix, which just struck me as being two behind the lens shutter cameras; Kowa 140 with 50/1.4 Prominar, 35/2.8 Prominar, 85/3.5 Prominar rangefinder and a Voigtlander Bessamatic CS with 50/2 Septon, 35/3,4 Skoparex SLR... two 36 EXP films which have taken me about 2 months to complete!

I've picked up a couple MF film cameras lately and of course been shooting them a lot to get familiar. I doubt that they will be a main camera however. My two main ones are the M9 and the XPro1. I like to take each of the ones I have out for a walk at least one time a week.

X-Pro2, because the MM is in for a sensor change! Looking forward to shooting them together with different focal lengths.

Ricoh GR almost every day. Sometimes with the 21mm conversion lens. Love this little camera.

I did buy an Olympus m5v2 mid May, but the front dial was loose. Camera shop sent it back as new for an exchange. The new one was loose as well. And they sent the first one back as a repair and it was not repaired. So, still waiting on the mirrorless body. Now will probably wait till after photokina. See what the m1v2 looks like. Maybe updates to other oly bodies?

Using the GR for wide angle. Wanted the m4/3 body for 50 and 90mm. One day I'll get there. A little disappointed in Olympus quality control.

Heading back to Miami Beach in a few days. May bring the nikon dslr. Haven't been using it much lately. It's got stellar image quality, but it's heavy and loud and I'm getting older and tired :-)

75% film in M6/M-A really liking the small size and speed of the 35mm MS Apoqualia .

Over the last few days also learning to use the m43 GX85 - things really have come a long way with m43 : the GX85 focus peaking implementation makes MF lenses fun, 4K video with superb IBIS is a new dimension.

Large Format (film)......17...7.76%
Medium Format (film)...53...24.20%
SLR (film)..................46...21.00%
RF (film)...................100...45.66%
Digital Compact...........32...14.61%
DSLR.........................35...15.98%
Leica digital................43...19.63%
Other digital cameras...54...24.66%
Other cameras............14...6.39%

It looks as if 35mm rangefinder film cameras are most widely used (based on the poll input so far). I am surprised by the high poll numbers for medium format film cameras.

Literally just a mamiya 6 kit. I don't shoot that much, but when I do it's nice to use a fun camera. I tried the 'draw a dot in the viewfinder' technique and now the 150mm is much more focusable.
The funny part is that although I develop and sleeve my film, I just don't scan my stuff. So I haven't actually looked at the photos I've taken on the last 20 rolls or so. That should all change soonish though, lol.

Sony RX100 III, Fuji X100, Sony NEX6. I bought all of these because of curiosity with the mirrorless camera format. The X100 is a great piece for me (someone mistook it for a Leica at a local art fair last weekend), and the RX100 III has surprised me as a quite remarkable pocket camera. I just did buy the NEX6 last week - used - and am experiencing a great deal of noise, seen best in the sky areas of a photo. I think it's operator error. We'll see.

After all the exploration with these digital mirrorless, I think I need to load up some film and take the IIIc out for some exploration next.
