Whatcha Got?

Whatcha Got?

Seeing people talk about having way too many cameras, a view which I happen to share at times, I decided to start a informal poll. So, make a list of what you currently have, or actually have on order. Then put only 3 cameras that you would keep if you were forced to sell everything but 3. And finally, your wish list of the 2 cameras you wish you had.

Here is the format


Currently have, or have on order
-------------------------------------------


If I could only keep 3 of the above
----------------------------------------------


My 2 camera wish list
----------------------------

(for certain members, we should note that the list is limited to under 100 cameras to save the internet and RFF from congestion issues )

Does anyone remember the name of the other long thread started when the RFF was just getting off the ground?

I need to go look at those SLRs I never use to see what I have and get back to you guys with a list.

Currently have:
35mm: Canon T90, Canon F1-N, Leica MP, Hexar RF, Hexar AF

MF: Mamiya 7II, Fuji G690

To Keep only 3: Canon T90, Leica MP, Hexar AF

Two Camera wishlist: I pretty much have what I need or want, but I would not turn away a Rollei TLR and/or an excellent 8x10 field camera. I just don't know enough about either to make an informed decision, and I have enough as it is.

Here's my very short list

Kodak No. 2 Folding Premo (sentimental item, hasn't been used since the early 50's)
Olympus OM-1 (now the 'family' camera)
Olympus OM-2000
Bessa R2

My three keepers
--------------------
pretty much same as above:
Bessa R2
Olympus OM-2000
Olympus OM-1

Wish list
----------
Zeiss Ikon
Bessa R3A

After hanging out with this crowd, my wish list is constantly spinning around in my head: should I get a Canonet, a Minolta Hi-Matic, a Fed, a little Olympus something-or-other? Bill Mattocks, if I send you $40 in unmarked bills will you send me a grab bag? Decisions, decisions! Actually I just barely got the Bessa R2 a month ago and I'm having a ball. Should hold me for a while, shouldn't it?!?

These are good topics periodically. It forces us to take inventory and see just how obsessed we are.

Presently own:
Plaubel Makina 670
Zeiss Super Ikonta BX 533/16
Fujica GS645
Canon P
Nikon S2
Leica M5
Minolta CLE
Contax T (2)
Zeiss Contessa S312
Zeiss Contessa LKE
Yashica Lynx 14
Yashica 35
Yashica Electro GL
Yashica YK
Rolleiflex SL35M
Nikon Coolpix 5400
Olympus IS-30dlx

Keep only three?
Plaubel
CLE
Contessa S312

Wish List:
Contax IIA
Nikon SP
Yashica YF
Cambo Wide
Epson RD-1 (I think)

The scary thing is how tough it was to shorten the wish list,

Hehh, you guys are weird

OK, i confess, i have (in order of chronological appearance):
-a minolta dynax 5 SLR
-a yashica D TLR
-a Rolleicord V TLR
-a yashica electro35 GSN RF
-a canonet 28 RF
-a yashica electro35 CC RF.
Currently i am bidding (probably getting it for ~eur30) on a Bessa 6x9 folder with uncoated Skopar.
[just not to let the rangefinders take over!!!]

What i'd keep:
-the minolta slr (my first "real" camera + come on, i'll never have cash for a rf with 17 and 24 mm lenses)
-the rolleicord (square rulez, especially those big ones! and it's just so cute, a brick with two eyes)
-the GSN (or the CC, i'm not sure at this moment. The GSN is nicer in hand and I feel more confortable with the 45mm lens; however, the CC is new, don't "know it" yet, is in a bit better condition and it looks cooler+is somewhat more portable)

Wishlist:
Mamiya 7II (well, one can wish...)
Contax II(a) with sonnar 50/1.5, 80/2 and biogon (unexplainable attraction, very hard to resist)

(The minolta's new DSLR would be nice too, though, just to try it out - maybe digital IS for me!)

May I add a not-truly-camera-but-photographic-stuff to the wishlist? A film scanner that handles both 135 and 120 format...

Spot the camera brand I like...

Current-
Bessa R Silver
Ressa R Black (ex Rover)
Canonet QL17
Canonet QL28
Canon EOS 500
Hasselblad 500C
Hasselblad 555
Pentax Auto110 Super
Lubitel 2
Linhof Technika IV
Toyo 810G
Polaroid Model 95
Polaroid Model 95b
Polaroid Model 110b
Polaroid Model 120
Polaroid Model 180
Polaroid Model 330
Polaroid SX-70 (x2)
Polaroid One Step
Polaroid 1000
Polaroid Big Button
Polaroid Colorpak (box full, haven't sorted out yet)
Polaroid Spectra
Polaroid JoyCam
Polaroid i-Zone
There's also a couple of cheap n' nasty digi-cams around and two P&S I can't lay my hands on.

Keep Three
The Bessa R's (x2)
The Hasselblads (x2)
Linhof Technika IV

Now the reason why I keep the Bessas and 'blads in two's, is because the camera bodies are part of a 'system', one backs up the other one. Some fellow 'blad users think it's quite queer that I have a electronic 'blad backing up a manual 'blad, it just was when I went to buy another 500c body, the 555 was cheaper and in better shape.

On the wish list-
Replace the Bessa Rs with Leica M4-Ps, with MP viewfinders and 35mm, 50mm and 90mm framelines and motordrives.
Realistic-
Canon DSLR: I'm thinking of buying a 20D in April with wide angle zoom and a Canon tilt and shift lens.
Fantasic-
Hasselblad Archbody and full frame 6x6 digital back.

Stu

PS. Anyone want a 8x10?

Wish list...
Hmm, I am pretty happy with what I have, down the road maybe my Bessa bodies will become Leicas.
Right now, something in 4x5, though I wouldn't use it that much...maybe the smart thing would be for me to find a Hasselblad CF 50mm lens.

Oh, I really would like a Rolleiflex.

Well, Step Four IS a personal inventory...

Mamiya Universal Silver
Mamiya Universal Black
Lenses:
50mm
65mm
75mm
100mm f/2.8
127mm
150mm
250mm f/5
4 (4!) Polaroid backs, many (think: "5") 'S' and several Graflex backs. Did I mention I have an RB, so those fit too?
Finders:
50mm
65mm

Moskva-5

2 x Kiev-4 bodies.
Lenses:
21mm CV
3 x 35mm FSU Biogon Clone
A round 'zillion' J-8 50mm f/2 Sonnar Clones
2 x 85mm Real Sonnar Copies (J-9)
2 x 135mm J-13

1 x FSU Turret finder (not to be confused with the "Turnit" finder of the Voigtlander)

Contax G2 (Black)
Lenses:
28mm
50mm
90mm "Ernostar" (THE SONNAR HAS A CEMENTED TRIPLE, AND THEY KNOW IT!)

Voigtlander Prominent:
2 bodies, one "I" and one "Ia"
lenses:
2 x 35mm
50mm Ultron
50mm Nokton (yay!)
1 x 100mm without fungus
1 x 100mm with
Proximeters (both)
Finders (all)
Hood for the Nokton.
Filters (all)
Neck CHAIN (think THICK and COLD, and PINCHY)

Polaroid:
340 (Grandpa's!)
220 (Needs batteries)
110a (Converted before it was popular--looks like hell)

And those are just the rangefinders.
RB's, I have two. Lenses are 50mm, 90mm, 127mm, 180mm, and 250mm.
Kiev-88, I have one, with the standard 80mm lens.
Mamiya 645 1000. Love it and the 80mm f/1.9 lens. Of course, if I need it, I also have the 80 f/2.8...
Canon FTb(N), with the f/1.4 S.S.C. and non. Actually, I own two of these things, one used to belong to my mother, but she went digital.
Oh!
And an Epson "XGA" digital camera. Seems broken.

I must say, I'm better off than I was. The Nikon S-2 stuff is all gone, and the Mamiya TLR stuff is similarly out of my closet. I still hate to go in there for towels, though, as I have such guilt I don't use these beautiful machines nearly enough. I just look at my "filter shelf" and get embarassed.

So it looks like Curt (wierdcollector) in the lead with Bill Mattocks a close 2nd.

I actually know someone who might have Curt beat... Larry Boccialetti (sp?) in Toronto. I picked up my Zorki4 from him, and he had at the time at least 6 whole china cabinets full of cameras, not including the basement and he was just rebuilding his collection. He mentioned that he had well over a thousand at one time, and sold it all to a prop company. He let me take a picture of his place with the condition that I don't give out the address.

BTW, I'm not very organized at all, but I actually have a spreadsheet listing all my camera's, bodies, lenses with filters sizes etc. What's everyone else doing to keep track of theirs. OTOH, my camera's are scattered thru the apt into the car .
