    Outside of smartphone cameras which brand or type do you have for your photographic needs or hobby?

    Nikon, Canon, Olympus, Hasselblad, Leica, Minolta, Pentax, Panasonic, Sony etc...?
    Amateur, Pro, Power user, not interested at all...?
    Digital or film...?
    Videographer...?

    Thought it would be fascinating to read your thoughts and maybe see your efforts behind the lens.
    Thanx everyone!

    P&S Canon; few years old. Also have a 25 year old Nikon film camera but haven't used it in years. Use my Note 5 for most shots. My old eyes probably wouldn't know the difference in a P&S compared to original Polaroid pic. LOL

    Brings back memories for me ... No longer use anything other than my phone. However I will post what I used in the past.
    Hasselblad EL. It was actually a transitional model. It had the built-in motor drive (EL-M) but was labeled as an EL. Used for hobby/weddings.

    To compliment this I also had/used these 35mm cameras:
    Nikon EM (entry level -- first 35mm I owned)
    Nikon FM-2 ... totally manual ... with MD-12 motor drive
    Nikon FE-2
    Nikon 8000S (auto focus lens 35mm)
    ...and a stable of several lenses
    ...film of choice then --- Kodachrome 64 and Kodachrome 25 ... and Agfachrome
    ...lots and lots of accessories --- studio lights, props, etc...
    First and only digital camera I had was a Nikon Coolpix P-7000

    I still have my FE-2 collecting dust in my old camera bag haha.

    This 620 was a hand me down that was passed from sibling to sibling in my family.
    I got it when I was 10 in 1962.
    Actually shot a lot of pics with this.
    Still works even with the missing screw in the front :)

    I keep this on the desk to remind me of how far we've come.

    ...at least lol.
    ...but --- I accumulated all this when married. However---during divorce I sold most (kept the FE) and had to split the $$$$$$ with her.

    No way I'd be able to buy all that nowadays. However I can afford a new phone to play with now and then .. lol.
