Topic: What Camera are you using today?

Today I pulled out an old Praktica LTL 3/Up front is a new-to-me Meyer-optik Gorlitz Primoplan 1:1.9/58. If I'm not careful I keep leaving some wonderful cameras just sitting in a drawer or cabinet. So what are YOU taking out today?

Re: What Camera are you using today?

Once every month I take out the Canon T90 in order to keep it healthy.

My beautiful silver Voigtlander Bessaflex TM and Fujinon EBC 55mm f1.8.

Re: What Camera are you using today?

Today I used a Konica TC with 50mm F1.7 for a shot of a appx 3' plant with red saucer shape flowers growing up the stem...it was in a crack where the pavement meets a brick wall....gotta find out what it is and collect some seeds.

edit: It is a variety of Hollyhock.

My go camera today is a Canon P sporting a Minolta 45mm/1:2.8 Super Rokkor up front. It's got a red solf release on top with a bk. Mr. Zhou, w/red thread, 1/2 case. This is one of my favorite combo's. Red

Today, I.m lugging the Nikkonmat FT w/ 35-70mm zoom 1:2.8-3.8 MC Macro Focusing Zoom lens. This is a fun ,but weighty, combo. Glad I put on a strap! Happy Fathers Day

Wish I still had my FT3; a good, solid, no-nonsense camera. I replaced it with a Canon EF; lost the original and later bought 2 more, and might just take out one of them today, coupled with my newly-acquired Tamron 24-48 SP.

Re: What Camera are you using today?

Around the house & garden I'll use a Canon t-50 w/a Closefocusimg 135mm viivitar. In town I'll go with a Bessa R using a Canon 50mm f=1.9 or the Canon 35mm f=2.8

Re: What Camera are you using today?

It's the 1st day of summer here in sunny Wrinkle City. I'll be toting' a Canon P with a 50mm 1.8 in the bag and the 35mm 2.8 mounted up front. Both have a polarizer filter. With the sun here they always seem to help. Have a great summer everyone.

Re: What Camera are you using today?

Today it was a Canon AE1 and a Canon 35-70, both of which were given to me recently, by different people. (The lens came with a T-70 that doesn't really float my boat, so I've done nothing with it yet.) I was just running off some test shots to check all is OK; enjoyed the AE1 more that I'd expected!

Re: What Camera are you using today?

I'm pack'in my Canon III with a Jupiter 12+ polarizer filter. Have a great day everyone. Oh! how about some other folks joining in, what are you people using?

Re: What Camera are you using today?

Well I can't honestly claim today, as my film habit is strictly for treats and special occasions, but when I do it's recently been a Trip 35, although a Yashica D, Praktica superTL 500, Agfa Super Silette and EOS 50e have all had their day in the sun

Favourite M/F lenses: Nikkor 50/1.4 pre-AI, Zuiko 50/1.4, Flek 35/2.4, SP 35-80/2.8-3.8, Macro-Tak 50/4 preset *NEW* Jupiter-8 and more rangefinder lenses to come!
Favourite (and only) AF lens: Sigma 12-24

Re: What Camera are you using today?

Well I'm a weekend, clear day, sunny weather shooter and getting a match in the UK is more difficult, for me and maybe an idea for others is:- I've got about 14 film cameras and enjoy most of them (or give them a workout), by splitting the roll up i.e. wind back after making note on the counter and wind on in another camera (of course add on a few blank frames in case of double exposure)...sometimes I  use 3 cameras on one 36 exposure film.

Re: What Camera are you using today?

Barney that image is great!

My last roll of film was with the Mamiya RB67, and I am half way through a test roll on a new Olympus OM-1 MD that I got the other day, to check if everything is working properly.

Re: What Camera are you using today?

F6 with AiNikkor 105/2.5.  Love that combo.

Last week, the "new" Hexar RF with a Jupiter9 - 85/2.  Another combo I really do appreciate.

Combined with Astia and Xtra-400, respectively, the results are stunning.

Re: What Camera are you using today?

Using the Canon P with a Minolta 45mm lens. The glass and camera are a good match for me.

Re: What Camera are you using today?

This week -weather permitting, I shall be mostly using my 'pimped up' Chinon CE-5 with Pw545 winder and DB010 data back- the height of 80's style!!

Faugh a Ballagh!
The fleet goes where we have already been...

Re: What Camera are you using today?

I feel like a heretic for saying this here but I'm really enjoying using the cam on my Android phone, fake filters, fake film and all :-0 Just pass on by this if you're easily offended and imagine I never posted it :-)

And all those Android apps ... this one's from an HDR cam that does HDR really rather well with static subjects and nice light, but strange things indeed when moving subjects walk into the frame in between bracketed expsoures:

Re: What Camera are you using today?

Today I got a new old manual focus lens in the mail -- a Tamron 80-200mm f/2.8 LD.  Because it's an Adaptall-2 mount Tamron, I can use it with my Canon FD, Nikon, and Pentax cameras, but I didn't want to wait on film, so I mounted it to my EOS DSLR and gave it a pretty good workout today.  So far it's shaping up to be a very nice lens.  Exactly what I'd hoped for.

Re: What Camera are you using today?

Yesterdays Sunday drive took us to the Pier in St, Pete Fla.My camera was my Bessa R . Silly me took the lift up to the top floor only to see I needed more film (2 shots left) A trip back to the truck! Got the film but never made it back to the top. Nice shots of brown Pelican's on the deck though. Today , well I'm checking my film and we'll be going out with the Canon ; a P or a II-F but there will be film! Happy day to all.
