His entire comment is hard to interpret. I don't quite understand if he's mocking or praising that camera. The part about "shooting something simple" was even more tongue in cheek.

He shoots extremely well though.  I'll take that as a praise of the camera, or the photog, I can't decide.  *stifles*

I complain about my cameras a lot also, but I like them.  They are my besties.

There are many websites praising certain cameras, and 6x7 is often described as perfect format, so I think he's just mocking them.

There is nothing complex about a MF camera, except for the loading of the film and same lens might have different angles of view depends on whether you use 6x9, 6x7, or 6x4.5, but a 50mm is a 50mm.  Oh, and somehow the same film looks different between 120 and 135.

Of course, if you like the camera, you just like it.  Why should you justify for it?  Love is love.  <_<

The Pentax 67 is certainly the nicest camera to use. It brings the most joy. It is the most fun.

It is light, quiet and pocketable.

Sorry what? Great camera, but the Pentax 67 is heavy, loud and definitely not pocketable.

Maybe? Half the comment is pretty spot on (the 67 is a great camera), the other half.... just odd.

Olympus OM1N is my perennial favorite

I have cameras that go through phases of affection, but this one stands the test of time.

The mechanics are buttery smooth; tactile delight. The Zuiko optics are great, as well.

Runners up:

  • Nikon FE2 (a bit more industrial)
  • Rollei 35 (same tactile delight, but less capable, with its fixed lens)
  • Yashica Electro 35 GS (UnbeLIEVEably quiet shutter, and it can easily go 30 seconds. Auto-parallax correction. Stuck with 45 mm lens though)
