Favourite camera?

I used to shoot film when I started photography 15 years ago.  Back then, playing a bit of cross processing with Canon EOS 30 which was my favourite and it had given me many good memories as a beginner…It didn’t took me long progressively switch to digital with the rest of the world. One day I found DSLR being too bulky and impractical to be carrying with me on casual walks and trips.  That was the time when my wife bought me my first Leica (Leica X) and then it didn’t take me long to get addicted to Leica M Type 240 for the last 2-3 years.  This spring my only digital camera, Leica M, was sent for servicing and I have been forced to shoot film intensively on M6 for the past 3 months, which turns out to be a great 2nd time experience with film in my photography life.  This makes me slow down and think like a sniper on how to wisely used my limited bullets instead of go crazy snapping and deleting photos… so if you ask me now, I would say M6 is my favourite camera.

Being forced to shoot a Leica M6, that must really suck 🙂

My phone 😀
Why it’s always with me, it’s easy to take candid photographs, share and edit photos. It’s the best way to capture memories.

I use a Sony A7R2 for everything, landscape, street, family pics and everything that turns up before my lens. For street photography I recently switched to scale focussing with legacy glass, seems to improve my pictures.

I moved from Canon to Fuji’s X series a couple of years ago due to smaller size and use of buttons and dials as I find them easier to use. The X100s is my travel camera and the X-T1 for events and when I need a range of focal lengths. The image quality is great and I find myself using the “out of camera” jpgs more often than with my DSLR.

My A7Rii is my favourite camera but is far from ideal due to size and weight.  I also own the Nikon Coolpix A but never really been happy with it as I’m not a fan of the 28mm equiv focal length.  My ideal camera would have the capability of the Sony A6500 with built in 35mm equiv lens in a body the size of the Ricoh GR.

I sold my Nikon equipment (DF,….and a lot of lenses…) a while ago, it became too heavy for travel. Now I own a Fuji XT2 and a Fuji X100T. I do my own fine art printing up to A2, the quality of the Fujis is excellent, I don’t see any difference to pictures taken by the Nikon (at least on my prints).

Favourite camera would have to he Olympus OM1n for me. This was my second SLR camera, the first having been a Zenit E. The Olympus brought a world of versatility in a compact slr coupled with some great quality lenses.

I use the ricoh gr ii but i have the ricoh gr in my bag just in case.  I also shoot with olympus om-d e-m5 ii.  But the Gr ii is my go to camera.  It is small, light, inconspicuous and i love that snap focus!

Same here! 😉 tools for situations. If I should pick one would be a film Leica or my actual M8, but that’s all.

I’m at a point now where I shoot with my Fuji X100t and my Nikon FM10.  

The FM10 makes me immensely happy just to walk around and shoot with.  It wa the camera I learned on 15 years ago, and I still come back to it and love it.

Both are good for what I need, and when I don’t have anything else, my LG G4 does some great work.  Go go phone cameras!

I really love my Pentax 6×7 for my personal work and the Sony A7II for the rest. I’m really looking for a x100f in the future, I think it has the best balance in the X family

Sony a6000 so far! 
The only downside is the poor battery life!

Solid camera. Love the fast autofocus.

My favourate camera for street photography is the Fujifilm X-E2 with a 24mm f1.4 lens

Initially i bought it second hand as a backup for my X-T1 (great camera) however for street photography I find it light and less invasieve so to say.

After an Olympus point and shoot XZ-1 I adhere to the m43 Olympus pen E-P5. Excellent with a 17 mm f/1.8 lens for Street Photography.

My favorite camera is my favorite smartphone and is my favorite device. It’s my iPhone SE. Perfect size to handle it with one hand, good camera (the same as the iPhone 6s), nice battery life.
I have a Nikon FE (film camera) and a Point and shoot Canon S120.

When I go for a streetphotography walk I bring my canon s120 because it has a better sensor (it’s stabilize so I can take picture will I am walking and the picture is not blurry).

But on a daily basis I don’t have my point-and-shoot with me, and I use my iPhone which is great because I can edit pictures directly with VSCO.

I go back and forth between my Leica Q and my Sony a6000.  I love them both for different reasons.  If I know that I am going to be on the streets for the day, definitely the Q.  If I am out and about and don’t know where I will end up, I always take my a6000 with a couple of lenses.  Both great cameras, but they have different personalities.

Fuji X100T and iPhone (seven for the moment). Because these are what I have, and it would be sad if you didn’t like what you have. Otherwise, I think my favorite would be an analog. The analog feeling is unbeatable. I prefer less is more and simplicity and like the challenge of having fixed lens.
