    I still have my Zenit E,  which was superseded by a Pentax ME Super.  The latter was stolen and the loss of the film inside meant more than that of the hardware at the time.

    I did find another ME Super and I still have it.

    I currently use a Nikon D300 and see no need to change yet. I still have the D70 that I had before. I kept it as a spare but frankly ought to sell it.

    I also went Zenith, Pentax ME (not sure mine was super) and Nikon route.

    I also borrowed my Dad's Pentax Spotmatic for a while before buying anything. 

    As for other formats I had some compacts of various kinds and also a Lubitel twin lens reflex. I wish I'd kept that.

    Slightly off topic but talking 35mm I have the Canon A1 with just about every extra you could ever need, all pretty much mint and all still boxed and with original instruction books - when I had the EM (for about 5 years) I promised myself that, one day, I would own the (at the time) ultimate camera - took about 25 years but I'm a patient person.

    That comment was actually referring to my old D70. Speaking of which, I now recall I was thinking of converting it to infra red, so I'll have a ponder on that.

    Things move forward, plates were replaced by film which was processed in dark room, digital SLR's took over from film with the processing being done in photoshop and light room.

    Now DSLR's are being taken over by mirrorless cameras, no doubt something will come along to replace this and on it will move.

    The art is what you capture and how you capture it, Ansel Adams was a genius, but people out there take amazing pictures every day, the worlds most expensive photo might disappoint you.

    hello, very disapointing i might say, i was lucky to find a copy of Ansel Adams best photo book, i gave it to the young lady doing the college course so i hope it will inspire her to admire a genius as you so put it well,

    I picked up a Pentax ME Super at a local camera shop last year. I really like the thing - in fact my brother liked it enough to buy one for himself. I quite like shooting in black and white and developing/scanning the photos myself.

    hello, a very nice camera, i always used B and W in my cameras then in the darkroom, had quite a few printed in the local paper, back in the 1960s/1970s a lot of well known photographers used different makes of cameras but not all Nikon A1s so you do not need a £££££££££££££ camera to take good photos,

    Yeah I'm pretty damn sure when I shoot my Pentax or Nikon D300 it's not the camera that's limiting the photo quality :D

    Another advantage of the nikon d3000 series is that the camera has built in photography tuition .and explains and guides you through the different settings for different results. 

    Its very good.

    No problem at all. 
    Upon further enquiries, it seems that the school lend you a camera !
    You apparently get to keep it for the course, but have to replace it if it gets broken/stolen.
    Not sure what it is yet, and I might yet still buy one, but thanks anyway for the pointers. 👍
