Of course, you can't have a discussion about beautiful, well-made cameras without mention of Rolleiflex:

They went out of business this pass decade, but from my understanding they're back online and making new TLRs.

At the suggestion of Phat Guido, I bought the new Fuji x10 last fall. It has flawless performance (especially in low light situations) and a cool retro look. When I have it out, I get a lot of guys stopping me to ask about it. It does have a certain look. And it was only $599. Incredible value IMO.

I have to admit, I'm not the biggest fan of Fuji's X-line cameras style-wise. The retro design is extremely derivative (of Leica's M, nonetheless) and clumsily hashed together, like a lot of Japanese cars. My pick for a small mirrorless digital would be Sony's NEX-7:

Not retro at all. Rather than try to mimic the look of a rangefinder, the design makes the most of what today's technology allows. Follows a very Sony aesthetic, and does it very well. Also, technically, it's arguably the best mirrorless digital camera on the market, short of Leica's on M9.

While the camera is technically good -- e.g. good processor -- the problems with the NEX, and most "compact" 4/3rds in general are: 1) The 4/3 sensor is too small and 2) the body is a paradox.... why build it as a compact when it'll look like this with a lens?

The sensor is actually APS-C, so it's quite a bit bigger than a 4/3 sensor.

Also, I would not think of cameras like the NEX-7 as replacements for compact point-and-shoots, but replacements for SLRs. The NEX-7 already gives many digital SLRs a run for the money. As such mirrorless cameras breach full-frame territory, it will be harder and harder to make sense of bulky, oversized SLR systems. It's only a matter of time.

Having a guitar is a thing of beauty, for the ears and for the eyes. I've had archtops and electrics hanging in my home and offices. They bring a lot of enjoyment.

Most probably, but I can't help but share my own current OCD-

Handmade in the US, from a nearly extinct 4-horned local sheep by artisans who put their heart and soul into each piece over a month of work.

Some of the textiles are of all natural dye, others don't use any dye at all. The white, brown, black and white above is just the color of the wool, from the multicolor Churro sheep. The history of that red involves a beetle from Central America. The Churro was originally from Andulasia, passed to them by the Spaniards. The art of weaving was passed to these folk by the descendants of the Anasazi.

And out of nothing the Navajo women weaved their own culture. They say each rug is a prayer; they say life is the sheep.

It is simply amazing that these things are still made. It is less stunning, but typical, that this is thought of by most Americans as "southwest kitsch".

A good Navajo rug just a wonder.

I don't think it was meant to be only cameras...
