Wow. You people are way classier than me. I'm carrying an old Canon Sure Shot (aka Autoboy II). I guess me and camera.bear should go hang out with our little toys.

Helen, JOIN the M2 gang once again. You know you want to.

My MP is at Don's for a modification, but I'm doing just fine because I have my trusty M2 with me all the time.

My Domke F-803 is always carried with me where ever I go. It usually has one and sometimes both of my Leicas and a couple lenses in it. Sometimes I switch them out for an Olympus or Nikon SLR and its lenses, if I think I am going to shoot something up close or something needing a lens wider than the 35mm C-Biogon or longer than my 50mm M-mount lenses. I have a wider range of Nikon and OM lenses than I have for my Leicas.

Right now my bag has my Silver M6, the 35mm C-Biogon and the 50mm C-Sonnar plus lots of Tri-X and Tmax 3200.

In my bag that I carried all day was my Contax G1 with Zeiss 45mm f2 Planar. It was loaded with Fuji Superia 400. On my desk that I'm sitting at right now is a Leica M6 and Nikon SP Original.

oh joe, I was just kidding, I'm not demeaning to anyone, and I don't care if a good picture is taken on film or digital just like the next guy. but don't you agree that Helen's style, the surface/texture of her photos is a very film-ish one (without any rating)?

For this weekend Only....
My M5 loaded with Fuji 200 and the 50mm C-Sonnar, Then back to the G1 with the 50mm C-Sonnar.

I just have to use that C-Sonnar on a film camera.

@helen
Yikes..... a bit of bad timing having 2 cams out.

no no, I'm not too much into the serious film vs digital debating thing (I find many more reasons for myself not to shoot SLRs than not to shoot digital) I would gladly try an M9 or an R-D1, I just can't find them at a price that I can afford!

whatever helen decides to do, it'll be her thing and that will be more than good enough for me to look at it, just as it was before. I think I might miss the analogue textures and the curves in the broad dark parts of her pictures, there will be other things to get excited about instead.

At work since 30 minutes and since I have used the 35/1.8 exclusively recently, today I brought the Nikkor-S-C 5cm 1:1.4. Camera is the black SP and also the usual L-208 and two rolls of film, Tri-X and RolleiRetro 400S.
