    Re: Camera Family Portrait

    Whew! I was beginning to think this thread was becoming a Nikon camera portrait thread . Thank goodness for the Speed Graphic. Well, I guess I should contribute my esoteric collection. The one on the left is my parents old Canon TLb with a 1:1.8 50mm lens, and the one on the right is a Seagull 4A-107. The first picture is a standard portrait, but the second is a little whimsy on my part. You might call it a show of non-Nikonian ostentation . Enjoy!

    And on the right is is my mom's first camera, which first belonged to her father. I don't know the model of this Agfa camera, it is similar to the Synco-Box however it isn't the syncro-box. We still have photos taken by this camera at home.

    I love the variety in your family. I would love to still have the old family Brownie. But allas it was gone long before I could get my hands on it. Thanks for sharing these.

They have F's, FA's, FEII's, FG's, an FM 2, and some Nikkormat's, just to name the ones I remember! They even had a F3 on the counter with a manual focus 300mm f2.8. And I thought about you and your 30+ year collection of Nikons.

    BTW, they also have plenty of auto cameras. N5005, N6006, N8008, N8008s, three N90's , a pair of F100's,... you get the idea.

    I love going into this camera store! ;-)
    I'm sure it would be your kind of place if you lived near here.
    Congradulation on the anniverisary. Seven and counting, let hope for a big number. You got a ways to go to match Joy and I, we are coming up on 33 this year. One of the things I love about her is that like your Dawn she encourages my photography. Anytime we are in a town big enough to have a camera shop she always ask if I want to stop by and play a while. You got to love a women like that.

    Re: Camera Family Portrait

    I found out an interesting story behind this particular camera in my collection, the Zenith-B. This camera was made in the USSR and was never avalible in North America. And well I had promised to show it to a member of my church, she wasn't there, however another guy from the church saw it sitting out by the sound board, since we both worked at the back in the tech booth. So he picked it up and started examining it. Well it turns out that the camera I had bought at a garage sale for $5.00 used to be his, a gift from his brother who had purchased the camera in West Germany. Then after the guy from church was done, gave it to one of his friends, from whom I had bought it at the garage sale.

    Funny how things work like that.

    And thank you for sharing your collection.

    Nice collection of gear. I have a Quantaray (made by Sigma for Ritz Camera) 70-300mm. That is a great lens for the price! It is the lens I use the most - until I get my 80-200mm f2.8. :-)

    I hear a lot of complaints about softness at 300mm with that lens, but even with a teleconverter, it still does pretty okay, especially, as you said, for the price.

    Re: I've had about enough of all this Nikonian noodling!

    Looking at all these old family photos reminded me of one of my old family memebers. My parents bought a Kodak instant camera when they first came out. Poloroid sued Kodak over it for patent infringment or something like that, and won. All of the Kodak were recalled, but my folks kept theirs. They were able to get film for it for a while but then I think the suplies ran out. Not sure if you can get film for it now or not. Not that it matters since I can't find the camera. I did find my old Disc camera tho. Remember those? I loved that thing when I first got it! Found an old Instamatic too. I will see if I can get some pics to post later.

    Yes, I have to do the same thing. I have a small Canon family - and one Panasonic FZ3. I have to figure out how to shoot them together. Maybe I'll post a separate one of the Panasonic......

    I'm looking forward to seeing yours!

    Now, I've been accused of many things. And a lot of them may even be true. But a sense of humor... That one may be difficult to forgive...
    Actually, my mom was the proud owner of the Vivitar SL/220 I learned on side by side with my (R.I.P.) K1000. She was never privy to the joys of Canon or Nikon.
    As for the spankings, well, I think it's evident to everyone whether I was beaten as a child!

    What do you mean 'how come photographers are so ugly all the time'? That's because they never have to stand in front of the camera.

    Talking Awesome!

    Look at all those white lenses! All Canon! I love it!

    And I see one or 2 G cameras right up front. I used to have a G2 and G3. I now have the Rebel 300D which is perfect for me - until they make a better one that is 1/2 the weight. ;) I'm going to sell my Rebel 2K - or give it away as I never use it.

    Thanks for posting your incredibly beautiful CANON Family!

    Re: Canonites Unite!!! Rejoice!!! The cavalry is here.

    Great!! It's about time you posted to this thread. I knew you had a very large family, nice to see them all in one place. Even nicer when some of them are tax deductible. Just like kids once a year they earn their keep. Know how you feel about the missing members. I never got over losing a Pentax and Mamiya to a thief back in 1971. A real since of violation and lose. The insurance money did provide the seed money to enter the world of Nikon how ever. Thanks for posting your beautiful family.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Main Shooter

    Here's my main shooter, the 1D Mark II, with my newest family member, the 400 f5.6L.
    Actually, almost all these cameras continue to see use at least weekly.
    The G1, G2, and A70's( we've actually got 3 of these) are used for patient face snapshots for chart ID in office, and outside the office when we don't want to pack heavy gear. The 10D's (two of them) get the most use along with the 100mm f2,8 Macro and MR-14EX ringlights. The D60 gets routine use by one of the doctors just because he's used to the D60. The A1 and the FD lenses are the only retired members of the family, although I take them out for film shoots every couple months just to make sure they're still working. The D30 gets occasional use on weekends when one of the docs wants an SLR to use that we won't cry too much about if it breaks (it's been broken once before). The remaining lenses with the exception of the 400 f5.6L get at least weekly use in the office studio, or elsewhere in the office by the supervisory staff in creating photos for office manuals and training seminars (we do a lot of in office training and set aside 2 hours each week for staff training).

    The family is actually bigger, but I can't seem to find one of the A1's and FD macro setups that we used to use before digital, and I'm personally missing two AE-1's and 3 FD lenses somewhere in a box in the garage or attic. I also have several vintage box cameras from the 1940's that I need to dig up-they're still in working condition, although finding film is a problem. Then there's the EOS 630, A2, and EOS-3 that I gave away that I wish were still part of the family.

    This pile should make Almo feel better about his collection! I actually ommitted all of the "projects" and really random accessories (though I had to include the microscope adaptor). But my coffee table is only so big - so no bags, cases, batteries, tripods, the new Bogen monopod, ect. I also forgot the Polaroid.

    The photo was taken with the Nikon Coolpix 4500. I wanted to picture it, but the Intel just wasn't up to taking the shot.

    Re: Camera Family Portrait

    Oops! The *istDS with either 35-80 or 50 has recently displaced the K-1000 as the most used camera. The purple Zorki is Dave (guy in back wondering why I had to do this between him and the tv)'s carry around camera. I adore using it when I can get it away from him and am thinking of getting one for less inconspicuous street shooting.

    Impressive collection

    That's a lot of hardware there, spanning a nice chunk of history.
    How often do you use any of these since you got the *ist digital? You should display these in a glass case if you aren't already. They would be great conversation pieces.

    Re: Camera Family Portrait

    My first serious 35mm was a Pentax Honeywell H1A with the clip on meter very much like the your number 17. Just last weekend while digging out the Speed Graphic to photograph and post I ran across several folders filled with proof sheets and negs taken with that camera. Great to see a picture on one. I have been cruising EBay thinking I might try to find one just for nostalgia sake. Thanks for posting.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??
