....meaning it needs to be something still in regular active use. I'll start off with my (relatively young) Canon EOS 100 body purchased in 1994 and still taking good shots today.

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.

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.

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.
