My Metz 45 CT-3 hammer-head and Manfrotto monopod - both circa 1985/6 Oh! and a 5ftx4ft Lastolight folding BG - around 1988 as I recall!
a benbo trekker tripod had it for about 18 years .
My walking boots, can't get very far without them.
My right eye ! Damian
Zenzanon 50mm lens ... bought 1984
Hasselblad standard lens bought in 1979, still in use and as sharp as ever.
A Paterson Universal developing tank I bought in 1958 (along with a Halina TLR camera and a Gnome enlarger when I sold my electric train set). I now use the developing tank as a desk tidy to hold pens and pencils.
Ah. Nostalgia ain't wot it used to be.
I've got a wholeplate camera that is pre-war, but I haven't actually used it much myself!
Zuiko 50mm circa 1981, a mottled gold/brown cloth, an Olympus T20 and T32 flash that are still safe to use on modern camera`s due to there low trigger voltage, again early eighties and various other bits and pieces.
Weston master IV circa 1966
Leica 111 ..... camera dated 1933-34, 50mm lens just post-war.
I'm not that old, but I've had it 20 years or so, and it still works fine with a service occasionally.
My Rolleiflex twin lens reflex bought secondhand in 1979, still going strong, never seen the inside of a camera repair shop, paid for itself over and over again. One of the best cameras ever made.
