Re: Vivitar W&S
And that is the best reason possible.
I mainly use a 1960's Calumet 5x4, which is quite different from the current Calumet 5x4s (as you'd expect). My second camera is a Mamiya RZ67.
If pushed, I might use my OMs again, but I prefer the larger negatives in every way.
I have no digital cameras, although quite a few film ones...
I'm producing a range of stickers for people's cameras. So far I'm focusing on:
For Holga fans, "My other camera is a Nikon/Canon (delete as appropriate)" and "I don't have any other camera; my view of life is permanently distorted".
For ironic Canon and Nikon fans, "My other camera is a Holga"
And, finally, for Christopher Isherwood fans, "I am a camera".
For Holga users - "My other camera is an Ebony" (reverse for more raised eyebrows).
Don't forget OneTen's pinhole masterpiece.......

Re: Vivitar W&S
Funnily enough, one of the most notable UK photobooks of recent years, "Hackney Wick" by Stephen Gill was shot entirely with a plastic camera he picked up on a market stall in the area. If it works for you, as Mr Hicks might say.
Hi, a newbie here, I use a Nikon D90 as main camera and a Lumix TZ5 as my 2nd camera.
My main camera usage is a Nikon D80 and a Canon 20D, but I seem to have severe Camera Acquisition Syndrome, I should probably trade it all in and get a D300, but I don't think I could part with my F5.
My house is currently littered with:
Nikon D80, Nikon D40, Nikon D70, Canon 10D, Canon 20D, Fujifilm S2 Pro, Fujifilm S3 Pro
Casio Exilim EX Z850, Olympus C-50, Olympus C-480, Olympus C-2040Z, Olympus C-3030Z, Olympus C-4040Z, Olympus C-5050Z, Olympus C-420L, Canon A420, Canon A540, Canon G5, Minolta Dimage 2330 Zoom, Mustek DV5200, Mustek DV4000, Vivitar DVR-310 ( x two ), Vivitar DVR-510, Vivitar 3345.
And film SLRs
Canon EOS 5, Nikon F5, Nikon F80, Nikon F50, Nikon F90x Pro ( x two ), Nikon EM, Olympus OM-1, Olympus OM-10, Praktica MTL50
And yet I still find myself hankering after a D2Xs and a F4s, EOS 1V ... if someone has a cure, can they let me know
( Hadn't realised this was quite an old thread )
That doesn't matter. I want it to keep going.
I clicked on the first page of this thread and got a warning about malware. Just thought it might be important....
Not sure why. It didn't give me any warnings. Thanks though.
Anyone else get a problem?
hehe, are you sure you want to open that can of worms, Dr Damien!?!?
You just relax back on that couch Seymour and tell me all about it. Now, when did you first feel the urge to buy a 110 SLR?
every night I have this recurring nightmare and this insatiable urge........goes back as far as I can remember, in my photographic life and that is a looooong time.
You needen't worry Sey, your condition isn't as bad as first thought ... you could be dreaming about buying and using, a Kodak Disc camera!
Who is zero?
I had one of those, one of if not my first camera, bought it from a church brik-a-brak stall. Got some good results from it too, was uncanily good at streetlight night shots.
So we can ask Barney Baht'at where he places his GF1 amongst the Nikons.
What a lot of negative comments - we ALL know Canon is the most popular brand (for better or worse) but this is a simple request for information - please treat it as such. Otherwise we will learn nothing!
