I can Dig where Simon is coming from... he's always been a Gent
I feel I can 'Exploit' more with Film...
though at Present I can't get No Satisfaction...with anything

just have some Lenses and no Bodies....

the X1 appealed to me because of it Size, tres Sexy Body. Large Files, and NO lens changing ( save that for Film)

what worries me about the M8/8.2 is coding, banding etc
It always annoyed me, every time You want the card YOU have to undo the bloody bottom Plate...such a useless design

Lost without Shooting...

I was out today delivering a camera I had sold. Along for the ride... a Sigma DP1.

At home. Within reach is a Nikon F6 with Nikkor 24mm f2 AIS mounted. Not loaded at the moment but a few rolls of Kodachrome in the fridge to shoot before Dwaynes' December deadline.

I remember your run-up to F6. Is it everything you hoped it would be?

Leitz Minolta CL with CV 25mm lens for film camera at the moment.

Sigma DP-2 for the evil digital side.

I just stumbled across a Retina IIIc (little c) for $10 today. It looks to be in decent shape over all.

I was going to throw some HP5 into the Ricoh 500 but I think I'll give the Retina a shot instead. Both seem to have better rangefinders than most of my other compact cameras.

A Leica X1. It replaced my GF1 + 20mm f/1.7 as my EDC. The X1 is much lighter and sufficiently more compact to make a difference, outweighing the mediocre autofocus. On weekends, I carry the M9 + 50mm f/1.4, and sometimes also a 28mm f/2.8 Elmarit ASPH and a 90mm Apo-Summicron ASPH. The last 2 weekends, however, I switched the M9 for my XPan II in order to finish up my last 2 rolls of Kodachrome.

I agree, that's why my DSLR mostly collects dust.

Usually the M9.

M2 + 35/2 loaded with arista's "trix", a combo I carry everywhere and which I love for shooting around my local streets just to document 'life' !!! When I can afford another lens or two, I'd like to get a 50 and a 90.....

Hi Helen

There was some company that made an alternative M8 bottom where you could pop the SD card out without taking the bottom off, have you checked these out?

Once you get a good M8 that's either fixed or new enough to not have the issues, they seem to be as solid as anything.

The secret is to take tons and tons of photos, like hundreds or thousands a month or so, otherwise dust gets in the system and fouls things up ...

I'm playing with my FED 2 that has developed a bit of a shutter hiccup on the 1/250 of a second speed after I had loaded it with a 40 exposure roll of film (yay absent minded bulk loading). all the other shutter speeds work fine but the 1/250 will randomly stick but then, will go forward after the shutter release is no longer depressed.

Came back home and tried to snap some of my cat with Rolleicord V and Neopan 400 @ 1600.

Now I'm on couch with OM-2n & 85/2 with Trix@1600 and E-PL1 & 20/1.7 on coffee table for the lazy evening.

Taken just now with iPhone 4

I'm at home now, but I always have a camera in the Timbuk2 bag that I drag to work with my computer and assorted project files. Today it was the M8 and Noctilux.

Had the Super Ikonta A (645) with me today, old 30's uncoated tessar, w/ triX loaded.

Now I'm home, and in reach is a minox B, but everything else is less than 10 steps away.

It's great to see diversity of "weapon of choice" for the day, and know that we really like to be ready for THE moment all time.

Waiting on a phone call on the bed.

The only camera in this room is my M9, with a Nokton 1.2 on it, as it usually is after dark.

Hmm? I'm at my computer desk and within reach on the desk is my only digital camera--an Olympus 2.1 megapixel C-700 with a FULL memory card! Won't take many pictures with that. At the other end of the house are all my film cameras, many of them loaded.

Currently stuck in a Corporate Finance lecture. In my bag beside me is a Contax T2, loaded with Neopan 1600. Planned to go to the pub with a fee friends after class, but I just heard that my Rolleiflex has arrived so I'm considering flagging the pub and go straight home to play with my new toy!

I'm on the road, sitting in a hotel, but in my bag is my IIIc w/ a Canon 35/2.8, loaded w/ Plus-X, just in case a photo op materializes.
