Divided between Fuji (X-Pro2) and film Leica (M4-P, M5). Micro 4/3 (E-M5II) for underwater and BEOON scanning.

I shot a bunch with a DSLR and a mirroless, but what I'm truly having fun with are an Olympus-OM20 and Lomo'Instant. Especially when I have the OM-20 with me, I keep dreaming about it being nineteen-seventy-something forever..

My most recent shooting trips have been to the Renaissance Festival, and I shoot a lot of medium format there. TLR and SLR. I've also gotten some new toys recently, and one of them is an RF and one is a Bronica, so those are prominent.

Fuji W3 (3D) is turning out to be my favorite (making stereo 4x6 prints, mounting them, and viewing through a mirrored stereo-viewer). I also use a Sony A7s, but it seems that I don't have enough time to fiddle around with photoshop. So, after recently swearing off film, I find I miss the simplicity, and a Fuji GF670 arrived in the mail the other day. With it, I'll likely concentrate on 6x6 in Gepe slide holders with anti-Newtonian glass.

I almost forgot my engineering work: I use a Panasonic LX3 on a fairly regular basis for routine documentation of surface drainage and bridges. The LX3 weighs practically nothing, so if I'm hiking a fair distance, I'll leave the A7s at home, and take it.

Digital for me, super zooms and DSLR's to be specific

Dear Raid,

90% of my photography involves nature and the outdoors. I shoot almost exclusively with digital super zoom cameras or DSLR's.

I want to use more film but the fact that I need to send it away for processing because there are no local labs makes using film unappealing to me.

I have decided to shoot several rolls of film this Fall though, as I'd like to compare scenes shot with both film and digital at the same exposure and focal length to see which medium I actually prefer?

I have a feeling that I'll prefer the look of film but the delay in seeing the results may be too much to overcome?

Regardless of the preference I will continue to shoot a few rolls of film each year because I am a dinosaur and I generally prefer the old way to the new way in most of my hobbies.

Regards,

Tim Murphy

Dear Raid,

I'm just curious but do you process your own film, or do you send it out?

I am by no means a skilled photographer but I do know what I like and what I hope to record when shooting a scene. I find the immediate feedback from digital to be of great value to me, as it gives me an immediate opportunity to correct a failure in most cases.

Regards,

I use 220 and 120 film in the SWC, and I send both film types out for processing.

I voted for the film rangefinder category, and this is reflective of my typical camera usage. But my actual use of film has been out of the ordinary during the past six months, at least for me.

I have actually carried and used large format and medium format more days in the last six months than I have used the rangefinder. As an example, the total square inches of large format film exceeds the total square inches of 35mm film put through my rangefinders.

Since this is the result of a single month project that has really skewed the results for the past six months, I have chosen to consider it an outlier.

I have to admit I've mostly used a DSLR - my trusty old Nikon D3.

I really need to get myself something rangefinder-y digital - the main reason for dragging the D3 around is that instantly available photos are highly sought after among the rest of the family.

Now, when I go shooting just for my own pleasure (a rare occasion nowadays, with three small kids in the house) - I mostly take my M4, on occasion also the ZI. While I find the ZI more convenient than the M4, there's something about the feel of the M4 which simply (IMHO) cannot be replicated by anything else except maybe another vintage M body - everything just feels 'right'.

None. I went back to drawing and painting, and let me tell you, it feels pretty strange not having a camera slung over my shoulder like I had for decades. Sometimes I feel it would be OK to have a small digital something or other in case something of interest pops up, but normally I can either sketch it quickly or call it back up from memory and do the same thing.

It is certainly different having a finished image in 2-10 minutes though! No processing, no developing, no printing, there it is, and it's not a virtual image on a screen, it's in the "real" world.

I bought a beautiful Rolleiflex thinking it might be good to have around. Just in case. But I sold it quickly here because it was just going to start the whole thing up again. I can either focus on photography or I can focus on the drawing and painting, I can't do both, for whatever reason.

I have never done painting or drawing, so my best choice for a hobby is photography for me.

Back in May when I first answered this question, my 4X5 was probably my most-used camera. Now that it’s November, and looking back over the past several months, I’d say my M240 has been my most-used camera.

Bag 1: M8 and M9
Bag 2: Olympus E-P2 and E-PL1
Bag 3: Hasselblad SWC
=========================

I pick up one bag from the above, and if there may exist very nice photography opportunities, it is [1,3] or [2,3].

I admire your honesty Raid. It is very hard to not to pick up the Hassey for film, and send it out to have whatever you want done with it. The results are premium.

I bought the SWC after I bought the M8 and M9 with the main goal to keep me attached to a film camera too. It worked out well.

I have been gradually entering the world of mirrorless, just to see how I like it, and this year bought a FujiFilm X30 and X-A1. The X30 came first and it's a lovely little camera but I found that the sensor is just too small to give good results in poor light, so I bought the X-A1 which is capable of excellent results in near darkness. The Fuji lenses I've purchased are 18mm, 27mm and 18-55mm. The first two, which are extremely light, make a great travel combo and the 18-55m is simply the finest zoom I have ever used. For film, I'm still using the Zeiss Ikon ZM and Leica M6TTL while occasionally reverting to a Nikon FM.

Having established that I like the FujiFilm system it's very tempting to lust after an X-T2 or whatever but I seriously doubt that the results will be that much different to the X-A1, so for the moment I'm happy with what I've got. The hefty Nikon D700, still a wonderful camera, is now reserved for specific projects.

Digital Compact (LX100)
Leica Digital (M9)
and Other Digital (GX7)

Since I bought an LX100 before a 4-week sojourn in Italy in September, it's been my most used camera of the last 6 months, with just over 2K shots in my LR library. Next up the M9, with c.1K, and my GX7 has oddly fallen back to third place with c.700 shots

There's still a roll in my Trip35, but I think it's more than 6 months since I took it out

Interesting reading, here

Jim

A Ricoh 500GX with lomog. lady Grey film. It's my first film through.

Frame 1 will be over-exposed as I forgot it was set to 'B' (as the meter needle doesn't move then so I hope that means the meter is switched off). I think frame 2 will also be over-exposed, I can't quite remember why. Frame 3 should be alright but it'll have a bit of flair in the top left. Frame 4 is a crap pic. Frame 5 may be exposed well enough but I doubt it'll be a good pic.

Missed a few pics as I forgot to unlock the shutter button. Found it best to set aperture and speed and then focus, as it's easy to move the focus ring while changing speeds or aperture.

That's as far as I've got.

These days I am shooting M4/3 a lot because of two factors. First they can mount just about any lens type available with suitable adapters and damn they are small and light. When traveling overseas this is especially an issue, not so much because of the camera body size and weight but because of the the lens size snd weight which is where the real savings are. Compared to my Nikon D700 and a fast prime plus maybe two pro zooms (wide to normal and normal to long) the M4/3 outfit is tiny to travel with. A real back saver.

I bought a used Olympus Pen micro 4/3 camera from KEH three months ago. I had gotten too deep into reading APUG, shooting film, and found myself stagnating without access to color producing less than a few images a week. I'll get back in the darkroom soon, but I've enjoyed having a small camera I can carry with me and the ability to photograph and produce pictures the same day. I also really bought into the idea of non-native lenses for the camera, have a number of adapters. I mostly use C-mount lenses, though I have a Pentax 110 24mm and my choice of m42, Argus and Nikon lenses. It's just a fun little system. It's a bit noisy, and I miss critical focusing with a viewfinder, but all-in-all, it's been great to get back to actually taking photographs, worrying less about the details and more about the big picture.

Most recently I took two Rollei TLR's to Budapest - original Rolleiwide with 55mm Distagon and a 3.5F Planar. TMX400. Earlier this year I went to Joshua Tree National Park with Ebony SW45 and the 90/8 SW Nikkor. Neopan Acros 100 Quickloads. I haven't shot 35mm format in a year.

For the last year or more I've continued to use only Fuji mirrorless with a sprinkling of Ricoh GRII for added flavor. Why? Size, weight and handling plus some really great lenses.

The last six months have been cold and wet, so mostly digitals and the occasional medium format or 35mm film camera.

Summer's coming, time for the 4x5

While my film go to is my M6, I recently pulled some old SLRs out of storage for fun... I forgot how much I like using older manual SLRs. It's what I started on.
