    Right now My current favorite is the Fujifilm GW690II. My 2nd favorite is my Bronica S2A, the 3rd is a toss-up between the Mamiya C220 and the Yashica MAT

    What is this "film" you speak of ?

    I've just looked over my shoulder to see on a cabinet shelf the following with no order of preference:-

    A GOKO MacromaX that I think I bought at Jessops,interestingly it seems to have a film still in it!
    A Minolta XD5, with four lenses
    A Canon EOS300 kit.

    The T90 was a fantastic camera, which I kept and used for many years, especially in the early days of digital which I never really liked until the specs. vastly improved from the early digital models.

    A secondhand Minox 35ML ... I still have it, though it's not been used for many years ... it fitted in my jacket pocket and was always with me.

    That happened to me too. It happened after I'd bought my 30D, and I only used the 50E now and again, so it was just relegated to "the shelf" (all my old cameras are on there). Saw a mint one second hand 2 or 3 years later for only 50, so I had to buy it! Might put a film through it one of these days.

    I like my Canon A1 the most of all the film cameras I've had, although I would like an EOS 1v more, provided I didn't have to pay for it...
    I still use the A1, although don't shoot all that much film.

    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!

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

    I had one of these, kinda wished I'd kept it, but couldn't get film or get it developed.

    First ever camera Olympus OM1 First Canon EOS 5 with eye calibration with five squares in the viewfinder which lit up red when you looked at them. But best film camera by far was the Bronice ETRSi.

    Noticing the Zenit Photosniper above I had a Bushawk which was similar but the camera fired with the trigger it was good but put a lens on that was a bit to long or heavy and the balance was hopeless.
