I have an NX20 its a really nice camera and the files are very good IQ wise use it with the 16mm, not tried the 30mm. It is a shame they quit as the sensor I guess they made for the 20mp cameras is pretty superb and the 28mp has had people praising its output. I thought Nikon or Pentax should have taken the mount over saving themselves a lot of work, also given that Pentax DSLR bodies were sold as Samsung at one point it makes me wonder why they did not come agreement at launch.

This is posed as one question, but for me the camera I use most isn't really my favorite, so for me it's two questions.

My favorite camera is usually the one I bought most recently, but lately it has been my Leica M3. What a surprise on this forum, eh? However, I've got to admit that my guilty pleasures have often been with little 110 cameras, and a Minolta 110 Zoom SLR that I got recently falls into this category, as does my first camera, the Pentax Auto 110.

The camera I use most remains my iPhone. What can I say? It's in my pocket all the time, and it's got the second highest resolution of my digital cameras.

The second time my XA's RF failed, just after the first repair, I took it back to Olympus and picked up this little brochure from the counter. There was a full box of them and a half empty box of these brochures on the service counter and I often think that could have retired a year earlier if I'd scrounged the half empty box and sold each one on ebay...

Smaller than all the good old film minis and I do 25-500mm shots,
panos and video with it.
It is always with me. Even when I use a bigger camera too.

Was M6 with Summicron 50, but since recently getting my Rolleiflex, that one's stealing all the thunder.

I have several digitals (and several film cameras), my the latest (digital) acquisition, a used mint Leica X2 is the grab for digital now. I have the X1 and love it, but the X2 is even better.

I try to take turns with different cameras i have. so it is difficult to pick one. I would say that the Nikon F5 and an Olympus OM-2n are probably the most used ones.

Right now I only have one camera, don't see the need of owning 87 different cameras.

So the one I can pick is Leica M4P with 40mm summicron, been my daily shooter for a little over a year new.

For the past 18 months or so I've been using an X-Pro 2 with a 16-55, and an X100F with the 23 for a long-term project. I love them both, but if I was forced to use just one it would be the X100F. It does exactly what I want it to do every time.

I have become fond of the Leica M-D 262 for its direct easy handling and interface simplicity, plus the fine results. Oddly, I also like the Pentax K-1 despite the relative complexity... a few pluses here are the IBIS, dust removal, and high resolution.

Sony a7 with Zeiss and Voigtlander lenses.

I also like using Fuji and Olympus digital cameras, but I use a7 the most.

I have often wondered st the history of the use of "full frame', given that it meant at one point "full cine frame" or what we now call "half-frame". Olympus's advertising and manuals for their Pen F SLRs referred to them as full frame, and this is way after the advent of the Leica 36x24 frame using cine film.

Hi,

The cine 35mm frame was called academy standard or something like that from the late 20's but they were always changing things; examples are the Nikon 24 x 32mm frame and the Super 16 cine that could be enlarged to 35m film at the print stage but which took cheap 16mm cine film and so on. There was an excellent article about it in one of Halliwell's film guide explaining the problems of transferring film to TV and so on.

Years ago printers used huge sheets of film; I can remember one telling me they'd done a 1:1 shot of a rifle for a catalogue... And others used 48" x 35" sheet film in some colossus. But why not 48" by 36" or 4 by 3 ft? Weird...

Back to the XA2 brochure; front cover was the XA2 with the cover closed; back cover was the back of the XA2 and one double page spread had the camera with the back open. Really cool but I wish I'd scrounged that half empty box of them.

Regards, David

I can't work to the rule of 'one camera does all'. So ~ Street - X-pro2 / 23 1.4, Urban landscape / night-time - Df / 17 -35 2.8, For enjoyment - OM1 / 50 1.4

My favorite camera was the Canon F1N. I had 2 bodies and a multitude of lenses. I'd load up my big Domke camera bag with both camera bodies loaded with different film (usually Fujifilm color reversal 50 and 100 ASA) grab about 4 lenses, throw a heavey as hell tripod over my sholder and go walk some god forsaken nature trail or mountain in search of the perfect picture. It didn't matter what lense was attached to the camera, when I looked through the view finder and tweeked the match needle TTL lightmeter I was in heaven.

About ten years ago I sold it all. I could no longer hump all that gear up a mountain, hell I couldn't haul the big Manfrotto aluminum tripod by itself up a mountain. So, I turned my back on my old friends and went... digital! Gasp!

Today I mainly shoot digital with the occasional outing with one of my Bessa film cameras, however, the Canon F1N will always be my favorite; maybe now it's more of a dear old friend that was once my partner in adventure.

These days my favorite that I use the most is a toss up between the Sigma Sd Quattro H and the Sony A7II paired with VM and ZM lenses. Both rigs make me happy.

X-E2 with the kit lens. Always used to be a prime shooter, gave that up after seeing the quality of the 18-55.

As for film: Konica TC with the 40/1.8 and Canon P (mainly sporting Russian lenses).
