Show us your SLR ..... WHAT?

In an unprecedentedly stupid move I have decided to start a thread called 'Show us your SLR' ... on a rangefinder forum!

Call me crazy ... call me what you want ... but like that K-tel 'Party Hits From Yesteryear' LP hiding in your record collection ... it's who you are! So come on, don't be ashamed, show us!

I let all my cameras co-mingle:

Slightly dated photo: the Kiev is in the UK at the moment.

I don't have that lens anymore, but I don't have any pictures of the camera with the lenses I do have.

This is what I really like about you Keith. You go out and buy an M8, but your still willing to put it down and play with a folder from FSU. Pick up the blue FED 2 and shoot with it for awhile. Now your like a kid in a candy store over a Canon AE-1p I simply love it. I'm glad I got one already because your enthuesiam is making me wan't to get mine out and play.

Unfortunately all I have right now is a really poor phone cam for the digital thing

NTL, here's my 99.999% of the time SLR. A T90 with a 50/1.4 (and the 300TL flash) is a combination that is just about as good as it gets. I got this one silly cheap ($99) due to a very easy to fix issue with the DOF preview... There are only a small handful of cameras that I feel are on this level and even then it's so subjective that it's painful. Still, I love it and wish it had stayed in production much longer rather than serve as the non-AF prototype of the EOS cameras.

Dunno why, but those R8's always remind me of the lumbering aliens in "The fifth element"...

My current favorite, a meterless Nikon F, with a Nikkor 50mm F2 H-C. The quality of this camera really grows on you after a while -- makes you forget how much it weighs!



A KW Praktina FX with a CZJ 40mm F4.5 Tessar, eye level prism, and optional rapidwind attachment. This camera is hard as hell to use, but a real piece to admire.



I could not help but post links to photos taken by the 40/4.5 Tessar. It's an insanely good lens considering it was made inthe 1950's. It's lenses like this which keep me suffering with Praktina bodies:

http://i160.photobucket.com/albums/t...ScanImage7.jpg
http://i160.photobucket.com/albums/t...anImage2-1.jpg

Note that the camera shutter has some pin holes in it if you look carefully at at least one of the photos (to be fixed tomorrow). These images were made with ISO 200 color print film from the 99-cent store.

Pherdi, it is an awesome lens. Introduced with the SRT 101 I think, they are quite a pair. I have not used the 85/1.7 also in that photo so much, but it too is a great lens. I love my Rokkors for more reasons other than just that they are cheap.
