Leica M7 - The Leica M7 is the best 35mm film camera ever made. It is a manual focus rangefinder camera with an electronic shutter and a built in light meter. Manual focusing with a rangefinder is far easier to do than with an slr. There is a small square in the middle of the viewfinder that shows two superimposed images, one is fixed and the other moves when you turn the focus ring on the lens. When the object you are looking at in the square has both of it’s images aligned, the object...

Yashica Electro 35 CC November 10, 2011 Taken with Canon 5DII This is the perfect film camera to carry everywhere with you. It has a very sharp 35mm f/1.8 lens, aperture priority mode (auto exposure), manual rangefinder focusing and is quite compact. It was produced from about 1970 to 1975 and although not common, can easily be found on ebay. This is one of the first rangefinder cameras I picked up and the one that really got me excited about the accuracy manual focusing provides. When lo...

Hasselblad 500 C/M - The Hasselblad 500 C/M is a beautiful yet simple classic camera produced from 1970 through 1994. It is completely mechanical (no battery or light meter) which allows it to be quite robust and reliable. I typically use mine with an A12 film back that shoots 12 square photos (roughly 6cm by 6cm) on a roll of 120 film. The most common lens used with it is an 80mm f/2.8 made by Carl Zeiss that gives a slightly wider field of view than a 50mm lens does on a 35mm camera. Using the waist level finder may take some getting used to if you have never used one as the image is mirrored, but they are bright and easy to focus. I would not recommend this camera for a beginner as it only operates in manual mode and does not have a light meter, but if you have a good understanding of the relationship between shutter speed, aperture, and film speed and are comfortable with either the sunny 16 rule or a light meter this camera is a joy to shoot with.
