I was shooting for the Oregon State University yearbook in 2001 using a Canon Elan A2E. It was the last year that the yearbook used film as we got a fleet of Nikon D100 bodies the next year. I still miss the eye controlled auto focus of the Canon. It worked surprisingly well.

Like many others I was shooting a film Nikon, in my case an FM2 loaded with Delta 100.

In 2001, I used mostly medium format film.

It wasn't until 2004 that I started in earnest using digital capture, a Canon 20D that I still have and it works just fine! Never been to the repair shop.

I had a devil of a time learning Photoshop. But once I climbed up the learning curve, part of the way, the steep learning curve, then it began to make sense to me. Next big change, for me, was going 100% RAW capture and going to Mac computers.

Wasn't shooting much then, but I still had my old Nikon F. Late that year I purchased my first digital - Canon PowerShot s110 Digital ELPH that came with a whopping 8mb cf card. Huge!

Leica Ms and Leica screwmount cameras and their Japanese copies were and still are my daily cameras, with the odd OM 1, Praktica, and Canon high end SLRS for longer lenses and macro use and the Kiev and Zorki RF camera for a devil-may -care experience once in a blue moon.

In 2001 digital had not yet matured and was not a good value proposition at least not for me, so for the time I stuck with film.

I was pretty "promiscuous" and experimented with just about every system there was - more or less out of curiosity rather than dissatisfaction with what I had. And what I had was kind of, well, from the sublime to the ridiculous. I had accumulated a lot of Pentax screw mount lenses as I liked the optical and mechanical quality of them plus they were relatively cheap so I also had a couple of Pentax screw mount bodies - my favourites being the pretty and elegant little pre Spotmatic bodies. I still own perhaps 20 Pentax M42 lenses or more (I have not counted) although I have since sold some of the best and more expensive ones to fund other acquisitions.

At the other end of the spectrum I used Leica - my regular camera was a Leica M4P with contemporary 35mm f2, 50mm f2 and 90mm f2.8 Leica glass but by then I had also bought an M3 with a Summarit 50mm and a 111a with Elmar 50mm. By that time I had also bought some Nikon gear and a few old Canon FL cameras which had a similar appeal to the Pentax screw mount ones - built like a brick outhouse and cheap. The one serious late model camera I owned back then and still own is a Nikon f801s but by 2001 my main love was for older cameras (these new-fangled AF ones being too easy).

In 2001, I remember shooting a group of people and one of the kids in the group said, "Look Mom, an antique camera." At first, I was insulted until I realized that my 30-year old Nikon F2 was old enough to qualify as an antique.

However, soon after that, I updated to a Nikon F4.

Sure. But (for example) I was mostly shooting M-series Leicas in 2008, the year of the financial meltdown, with the addition by last year (Brexit, Trumpism) of far more Nikon than I'd have thought likely until the Df came out. All I'm saying is that if you subtract the hysteria, 2001 may not be all that important in the long run. Especially not to non-Americans. After all, just after I left university, one of the pubs I used to drink in was blown up by the (mostly American-funded) IRA. At the time I was using screw-mount Leicas and had just bought my first 5x4 inch camera, a Dawes.

All I'm suggesting is that it is possible, especially if you are fairly young, to overestimate the importance of local events that happened in your lifetime. In 2001 I'd have been using mostly M-series Leicas but really, there are dates that are more important to me. And to most non-Americans. Frances and I were still much concerned with her recovery from breast cancer and with a prospective move to France.

For that matter, I'd suggest that anyone who can remember what equipment they were using at a particular time is more likely to remember it from a personal viewpoint rather than from the national news. More "It was 2001 so it must have been..." than "Gosh, in 2001 it was..."

For me, photographically, 2001 was much like the previous decade and the following 5 or more years. By all means tie it to 2001 -- a good idea -- but don't imagine that 2001 was necessarily very different from 1998 or 2004.

Cheers,

R;.

In 2001 I was shooting with most of the same cameras I use today: motorized Nikon F, F2, FA bodies (and occasionally Nikon N65 auto focus body), and S3 and SP rangefinder bodies. Since then I've added motorized F3P and FG bodies as well as an Cosina Voigtlander R2S rangefinder.
Digital? Not then and not now.

All my darkroom equipment was in storage in 2001, having moved across the country two years earlier.
I had a Nikon F3 with a bunch of lenses and a Leica M5 with a 50mm Summacron. I shot only color negative film and had it processed and one of the local one-hour photo places (there were several to choose from). I would scan the prints on a flat bed scanner to post photos on the internet.
It would be 5 or 6 years before I bought a digital camera.

Early that year I got a new Voigtlander Bessa L with 15 and 25mm lenses. I took that and a favorite Minolta CLE on a several-week vacation in southern Spain near Málaga with side trips to Seville, Tangiers and a few other places. Not a lot of photography the rest of the year...

As for the impact of the events of September, it's certainly of more import to US, but the reminders of it serve to keep us less complacent.

2001. Ages ago. I had a cheap Minolta with the kit zoom (I have no idea of the model), but wasn't really that into it. I have two photos that I kept from that camera, one of my now elderly dog when she was a pup, and another of me and my (now) wife on a road trip standing in front of the cheap motel we stayed at the previous night. Neither photo was taken in 2001 though.
Too busy riding skateboards, drinking beer, and going out all night to have any time (or money) for photography.

Mamiya 645 Super, Olympus OM-4T, and Nikon F4. Was a few more years before I bought my first digital camera.

Canon EOS 5 and Olympus mju II. Still have both and in excellent condition. However the grip on the Canon became sticky as the covering has started to deteriorate.

I still haven't moved into digital, so I was using in 2001 essentially what I'm using now, shooting color slides:

MF: TLRs (Minolta Autocord CdS-III, Mamiya C330f, Rolleiflex T, Yashica-Mat EM).

35mm: (Minolta X-570 + winder, Minolta SR-T 101, SR-T 102, SR-T 201, Canonet GIII QL 17).

Leica CL, Yashica AF-230 and Olympus XA2 but on the digital side an Olympus E-1* and a Fuji MX-1500.

Later on I sold the Yashica because of the high cost of the batteries (2CR5) and went back to a (second-hand then) Pentax ME super. I still have those 3 film cameras but the digitals are long gone.

I can't remember the MX-1500 and had to look it up and still couldn't remember anything about it except that the records show I bought a 32MB media card for UKP 40 then.

Regards, David

* It was an E-10, usual (painful) finger trouble did that...

But Roger, the hysteria is what made 2001 stand out in our ( us Americans') memories.
Much like, for me, 1963: my first memory of television was when JFK was assassinated. I was three years old and I remember, 1) my parents were devastated and 2) I couldn't watch Yogi Bear because the only thing on all 3 tv channels was coverage of the President's murder.

In 2001, (I won't attest to this but I think) I was using a FED5 for 35mm and an Arax60 for 120 film that year.

OK, I have to ask:-

What happened in 2001 that frightened/amazed/worried you all in the US of A?

I wasn't interested in photography in 2001 - and just took snaps with compact cameras. However, I'd already seen the writing on the wall for film, and gave it up for the convenience of digital in 1999 ... and I haven't looked back for 18 years!

In 2001 I was still using that first digital camera. It was this handsome beast ... a Fuji 4700. It had a resolution of 2 MP, used (now defunct) Smart Media cards and AA batteries. Took surprisingly good photos, and the printed snaps were as good as any 35 mm compact film camera! It ate batteries like anything, though: it'd eat a Duracell AA within an hour or 50 photos, whichever came sooner!

In 2001 I was shooting stock for $, with two F4S bodies and an F100. Mostly ektachrome and Velvia. Out in the woods many days a week.

I also was shooting a lot of still life in the studio with a Wisner 810 on Delta 100.

LOL I remember that feeling well. My first digital was a HP P&S I got in 2004, which used AA batteries. I'm not even sure it would do 50 photos! I did find it could do more if I bought expensive lithium batteries though. When that camera was stolen, I bought another HP P&S... But at least this one had a proprietary rechargeable battery which could shoot all day before getting low. It was a huge improvement.

Its funny; those P&Ss came during a lull in my "regular" photography. After shooting slides for years, I was pretty burned out by about 2003 and took an extended break. I shot just a smattering of rolls in 2003-2004-2005 and actually let almost all of them accumulate before taking them in for processing. I used the P&Ss for quick snaps during the lull. I gradually picked up the SLRs again slowly starting about 2006 and found that by that time E6 processing was no longer available locally; it was now slow, expensive and inconsistent in quality. That was one of the factors that drove me to buy my first DSLR in 2008.

I'll forever be grateful to that camera: getting exactly what I saw - immediately - was a revelation. With film, often by the time I got it developed, I'd forgotten why I took some pictures; also, the prints I got back never looked like I imagined they ought too - back then, I had no idea that local print shops auto-adjusted the exposure and cropped the edges off my images!

That Fuji piqued (note the spelling - not "peeked" or "peaked" LOL!) my interest in photography, and I bought my first "serious" camera - a Canon 10D - in 2003, to be followed by several others, both film and digital. I've since been awarded a master's degree in fine-art photography, and my work's been in exhibitions around the world. And it's all thanks to that 2 MP digital camera I bought two decades ago...!

Canon EOS-3 and EOS-1N.

I was flirting with buying an EOS-1V in 2001... I borrowed one quite frequently that year from Canon's CPS program and loved it.

But I held off on rumors of the EOS-1 digital camera, which appeared at the end of the year as the EOS-1D and I had in my hands by December. So instead of spending ~2500 CAD on the 1V, I paid ~8000 CAD for the 1D and another ~6000 CAD for a couple computers (desktop and laptop) and related items (256MB CF cards for ~$300 US, lol).

By the second half of 2002 I only shot digital, which remains true to today. But I still have the EOS-3 and 1N...

I remember this too. Some clients thought shooting digital would mean I would be coming to jobs with a digital P&S, like a Coolpix, or something. For others, their production people were slow to adopt a fully digital workflow and as a result reluctant to accept digital 'originals.' I seem to recall an issue being the lack of a physical original against which to accurately compare press proofs. Color managed workflows were not well understood. I also happened to work in prepress at this time and understood some of the reluctance, but was also familiar with how different digital files were from film scans and how they could be optimally processed for print. Meaning, most of the prepress reluctance I encountered from clients was lack of understanding/education on their part.

It would be difficult to shoot with an Olympus E-1 in 2001 since it wasn't released until 2003.
Still have mine, manufactured in October 2003...

Roger,

2001 was the year that George W Bush was first inaugurated President of the United States: the first time the US presidency had been stolen away from the rightful candidate in this century. That's a pretty significant thing in world politics and on the historical record. It set a precedent.

The terrorist attack on the World Trade Center also marked a fairly significant moment in world politics: the moment that terrorists won. That has changed the entire world in some fairly noticeable ways since.

These are not the only significant events of the past fifty years, of course, and I'm not going to judge if they were the most significant or just two of many. But to say that they aren't particularly significant is to wear blinders.

I now have his camera and I still have the first photo I took with it in the spring of 1952. However, I am not yet 75.

Kodak Bullet: eight 1-5/8" x 2-1/2" pictures on a 127-format roll of film

See Classic Cameras: the 1936 Kodak Bullet and Walter Teague for an interesting write up.

I hope they don't waste their time on that (it won't change anything, least of all my opinion) and instead look at the article on the Kodak Bullet I posted a link to. What a beautiful old bit of bakelite design that camera is! I'd love to have one on my shelf in pristine condition.

Still have mine, manufactured in October 2003...

Thanks, it was the E-10. Usual (painful) finger trouble I'm afraid.

Regards, David
