    Started off with the Praktica MTL 5B think it was , the old screw thread lens mount . First Canon was a 2nd hand A1 , along with an FTB , and finally the T90 , what a camera that was , have not picked up a camera that felt so nice in the hands before , or since .


      I had one of these, kinda wished I'd kept it, but couldn't get film or get it developed.
      Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way


        EOS 50E. Always wanted an EOS 3 but could never afford one.

        70D, 30D, G1X Mk II, G12, EF-S 15-85, EF-S 18-55 STM, EF 40 STM, EF 50 II f 1.8, Sigma 10-20 f 4-5.6, Sigma 150-500 f 5-6.3, Sigma 1.4 EX DG Teleconverter, Tamron 90 f 2.8, Tamron 70-300 VC, Speedlite 270EX, 270EX MkII, 430EX III-RT, 550EX, 580EX, 600EX-RT and numerous bits and pieces.


          My first film camera was a Praktica too which I bought from Dixons (remember them?) in 1974 when my daughter was born. I still have 3 of the screw-in lenses which I use quite regularly on my EOS digital (obviously with adapter) - its difficult to beat metal and glass!

          My favourite Canon film camera was my EOS 600 which I had for years.

          I have a few vintage medium format film cameras too, and my favourite of these is my ICA Icarette which I have managed to adapt to use 120 film. The pics from this are stunningly sharp which is not bad for a camera that I believe was made between 1905 and 1910. There is a label on this camera which says "J. B.WATSON, OPTICIAN, EDINBURGH".

          Keep pushing that shutter button!
