In my personal view of photography and life in general, the "convenience" that, for me, is the only advantage that digital cameras have over film (specially if we talk about medium format film), was never something I cared about. However I may have to start caring about it, at least part of the time.
The thing is, I have no idea of what camera to get, so I would like some advice. [more inside]

I've inherited my father's 1967 rangefinder camera. The metering doesn't work anymore. Help me take pictures with it again. [more inside]

Fuji x100, why should I pay so much for a fixed lens camera? Is this a rangefinder? I don't really know what that is.... [more inside]

I'm in Madrid this semester, and would like to pick up an old rangefinder camera (film) or similar for around 20 euros. Is digging around antique shops and similar my best bet? Do you know a place? Or are there actually some not-terribly-expensive used camera shops in this big pretty city? Are there secondhand shops/thrift stores at all in this town? Aware of El Rastro, tried once with no luck and will probably try again Sunday. I'll also be in London next weekend and am not opposed to buying it there if you know a place. [more inside]

I keeping coming up with good reasons why I should by a Leica m8 rangefinder camera.
I am fairly competent with a dslr.
Q1: Is a rangefinder camera worth the trouble? compared to dslr?
Q2: Should I wait for other companies (Zeiss etc) to release the digital versions of their rangefinder camera, rather than paying the Leica tax?

Does anyone know where I can find a '50s-era Canon 35mm f/1.8 or the later f/2 rangefinder lens in good to excellent condition?
