I guess it depends if the camera was the murder weapon and how deep the grave in the woods is...

so I'd have to say the 67 II, as its heavy enough to knock me out in one blow, and the wood handle would capture the fingerprints.

Such a thing would be horribly wasteful, but If my family was so inclined to fulfill such a desire: it would be my Ebony 8X10 with my Schneider APO-Symmar-S 240mm f/5.6.

IF I were to ask for such a thing (!) no doubt my first SLR, a Canon FTb. Nearly bulletproof and it still runs, I just don't do film any more. Excellent shooter that took me through high school on the annual staff and helped me learn B&W film and print processing.

I don't really care as long as the plot is piped with a tube to run an AC adapter and video-out cable so they can make sure I stay down there.

It will be tight in that box.... so a KP and some lens that can focus close.... so maybe a 10-17..... definately need a flippy screen (knee's will probally stiffen up a bit as I decompose)..... might need to go with a weather sealed lens now I think about.... will need to check on the water table depth at centenial park...... also.... maybe will need a grip because KP battery doesn't last long..... man.... so much to think about.

Ok.... thought about this some more..... has to be a K1.... need 2 SD card slots..... don't want to risk a faulty card as I approach heaven's gate..... if they refuse me entry I want to get some shots for my appeal.... plus I reckon the K1 is more likely to survive going through hell..... now..... silver or black is the question..... mmm

I don't know whether to applaud this level of ego, to be buried like royalty; or to cry at the sheer loss of such great photographic equipment.

Have to be silver, surely, as black absorbs heat ...

None! I want them all to go to good homes where they will be used and cherished!

Absolutely! Otherwise a terrible waste of cameras. I don't think after we're buried that we'd be taking many photos, so let someone get some pleasure out of them!

I wouldn’t want someone digging my grave to retrieve a rare antique.

I'm thinking black........ if I put my silver one down on a cloud in heaven then I'll never find it..... and .... if through some clerical errror I end up in hell... I think I risk be bullied with a silver one.

It would have to be my Spotmatic F film camera. But where I'd likely be going the heat would probably result massive colour shift. And I would need a filter to time down the reds.
