    Classic cameras and 35mm?

    Any collectors or users of 35mm (MF and LF too) equipment?
    Who loves the silver halides of film and collects classic cameras?

    I love photography, and though I have a digital camera I gain more pleasure out of using Film.

    I currently have a Contax G2 as my main camera, plus a Contax TVS III, Contax Aria, a Yashica Minister D dating from the 60ies, an Olympus OM2n and a Fuji GA645.

    I can't afford a leica, if I could I'd get myself a leica M3 and an M7!

    Any one here share a similar passion?

    i have an old canon ae1 program, and while it doesn't compare to the contax and leicas, the photos are super sharp! im using a nifty fifty on it and ilford BW 400s. definitely love the grains on it, and i feel no point and shoot can still compare to the clarity film produces.

    Hi Moky, great cam that the AE1 and you're quite right, the quality, feel and tones you get with Film cannot be matched by clean clinical lifeless digital.
    Taken many photo's lately?

    To name a few I have Canonet QL17 and QL 19, Canon AE1, Minolta SRT 201, a couple of Diana cameras, a Holga camera, a Wista 4x5, and a Leica M6. I also have a couple of pinhole cameras, though they are actually fairly new. I do enjoy shooting film, but I shoot digital on occasion but not much anymore.

    50mm is my favorite focal length for 35mm.

    Not much film anymore but I used to love shooting with my Contax G2s, sadly they sit now, but I am very happy with my Fuji X100, the digital homage to the G2

    Digital spoiled me.
    besides the OM-4ti in my avatar I have a Minolta CLE, Mamiya 645 and a Olympus XA that I use from time to time.

    would like a digital MF, though.
