    so lets here it, what brand camera would he use? Nikon? Canon? Hassy? Leica? Mamiya?

    I for one think he would use a rollie trip 35 for its ease of travel and unassuming qualities. He would then somehow pull out 8x10 quality prints from his fishing boat darkroom. . .

    I think he would use a camera that not many others would have ever seen, the Tessina 35. It would shoot smaller than normal film images of 14mm x 21mm in size, using 35mm film loaded into special cassettes, and even though his capture area was smaller than 35 full frame, and just a little tiny bit smaller than Canon's APS-C sensors, he would tell everybody, "But my images look just as good as the ones from the full-frame camera my Dad uses."

    Tessina - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    He would use this camera because nobody here has ever seen one (except Compur, who was born in the Holy Land of Cameras, and now lives in the
    sacred land of Los Angeles, where old cameras never mildew, but instead get face lifts and hang out down in Santa Monica when the weather is nice).

    That's my guess as to what Jesus would shoot....a Tessina 35.

    ohhhh, DReali, is that a comment on the PURENESS of film ?!?! i think it is and i think i'm in agreement. derrell it seems your on to something . . . jesus may in fact have owned a tessina. no one has seen it, its an humble format, its pretty and isn't trying to trump the fathers gear.

    If Jesus were a photographer, and assuming the mythos around him is true (which it ain't but hey, whatever), he wouldn't use a camera. He wouldn't even use film. He'd perform a minor miracle every time and simply create an image on a piece of parchment of exactly what he wanted.

    Jesus would build a pinhole camera and expose glass plates that he coated with a very special emulsion.
