I don’t do one a time these days! I like the buddy system. It keeps the cameras happy—well, some of them, at least. Recent regular pairings are these:

::M-D 262/ZM 50, M7/28 or 90
::RX1, Leica T/18-56
::GR, SD Quattro/SA 17-50

Of course, in years and years of acquiring cameras one at a time, each was The One for a while—months, a year, two years. (...if this were the desert island question poll, I’d say RX1.)

Actually (since 2years) that is a Fuji F900EXR.
Was a Fuji X10 before and a Leica M6 long time ago.

I enjoy a lot of different cameras, when I have a chance to use one. Sadly, that isn't often lately.

But I often have my XA along, or my Contax 167mt and three zoom lenses. Two lenses are Vivitars, one a Phoenix 18-28mm. It was just my luck to get good examples in all those lenses. And of course the Contax 50mm f/1.4 is always in the bag.

I'm having a blast with my Minox 35. Been using quite a bit a Minilux too.

Leica M6 TTL for me. I’ve been using an M3 and 50mm lux V1 for the last 2 months and I enjoy it, but the M6TTL is my favorite. I prefer the larger shutter speed dial and built in light meter.

The all time favourite and most used is my film Leica CL simply because I've had it for decades and been using it for decades.

Closely followed by the Olympus XA and XA2 which were bought new; until the second return to Olympus it was always the XA then I gave up and bought the new (then) XA2 and have had it ever since.

(And a while ago I saw a second-hand XA and bought that as I missed it but the XA2 is still the favourite carry anywhere in my pocket, then the Leica mini III for a bit of variety.)

I don't know about digital; probably the Lumix LX's from LX2 to LX5 and including a burnt out Leica version but that's fairly recent, say the last 15 years and that's nothing compared to the CL's decades...

Regards, David

Contax T3 is my favourite choice since nearly 2 years and always with me for street/documentary stuff. My also beloved Nikon F3 with 50/1.2 is getting dusty, that hurts somehow. Thinking of selling it and get a Makina 67(0) instead for a different kind of photography.

For digital, XE 1 with 18-55. For film Mamiya 645, with waist level finder and 80mm 2.8 or my Fuji GS 645. When I'm shooting 35mm my IIIc or recently acquired Nikon FE.

My most used camera has been my 0.85 M7, I'm sure I'm getting close to having shot 100 rolls through it since buying it last July. This is closely followed by my M3, and then a Nikon FE.

What a difficult question! It took me some time to think about!
To be honest my favorite camera is not the one I use most!

Let me explain, please. Now the one I use very oft is the one I bought one year ago, the M10. Size, weight, simplicity are the reason . I'm happy with that. And this is the "rational" answer.

But my favorite camera intended as the one which gives me more pleasure to use is one of my old refurbished Polaroid SX70 (I have more than one)! And here are two reason, one is the fascination of Polaroid and the other is that I'm working on a wabi sabi project about beauty in the imperfection and this is most appropriate tool for this job.

Hmmm, I know, I have photographically multiple peronalities...hope it's not too bad

The FUJIFILM X100T
  • It has an OVF
  • I like the raw files
  • Easy to carry where ever I go
  • Can be operated as I operated my Canonet QL-III

My OM-D-EM5 has seen a lot so use in the past year. I just got the 12-40 for it so it will be a long time before it gets any rest. The dials being blank are still a PITA though.

Second is my Panny LX-5, which I love. I wish panny would have kept the ability to shoot multiple film simulations at once. May have to grab anx100f now as I'm doing a bunch of street photography.

From a printing standpoint, I prefer larger negatives. My most used camera would be my Rolleiflex T, but lately I've taken up with 35mm again. I love Leica Ms....but my current most favourite camera is the 1934 iiiD. It's been going everywhere with me & the results have suprised me.

The last few monts I've been using only a button rewind M2 with a Summicron 50mm f/2 rigid and a Summilux 35mm f/1.4 steel rim.

Leica M2, Summilux 35mm f/1.4 steel rim, 400-2TMY.

Erik.

The past few months the Fuji X-T1 and X-T00T. I have been looking for labs in Ho Chi Minh City and I think I have found one which not only develops b&w film but also does decent scans. I still have a stash of Agfa and Tri-X and if it all works out, I'll be using the Leica M6 TTL and the Zeiss Ikon ZM again.

In all honesty, I can’t possibly answer this, even to myself. It’s like asking “who is your favorite child?” Love them all. I guess that partly explains why I can’t sell anything. Even “favorite five” I wouldn’t attempt.

Lovely photo.

Always been curious about this Sony mostly because I like the body style.

It's giving great saturation in color and very nice tones in B&W.
I love using the back screen to focus and frame...it's easier on the eyes than looking through a viewfinder with glasses...

Any older "analogue" Leica M body that supports the whichever lens I need at the particular moment. For the last decade or so, I've used two M4-P's ... For the twenty or so years prior to purchasing the M4-P's, I used an M2 and an M3 ...

My F2 is my most used and favorite camera. My Df is catching up in the usage department but I dont think it will ever take over the F2 as favorite. RF wise I hang onto my Ansco "space camera"..Ive wanted a Leica since I was 12 though...
