Well, I’ll have to say that I just love “retro” stuff. We live in a house that was built in 1960, and I just love the old stuff that has survived the years that we got with the house, or srounged off ebay/craigslist in order to set the proper “mod” tone.
Well, in terms of cameras, I love the idea of “old meets new”. I recently obtained the old Nikon F camera that I learned on as a kid from my Dad (he bought it new in 1962). I’ve been shooting video with my Canon EOS 7D, and loved the idea of getting an adapter and using this great prime lens on the 7D. We’ll I’ve done just that, and it’s been fun to experiement with stills and video in “total manual” mode- no autofocus, no metering support, just “bare to the wire” digital photography. Fun stuff.
And some pictures and video taken with this combination:
