What is the oldest camera in your camera bag that you STILL use?

I noticed my profile on here still shows I have Nikon D300.  What is funny is that I've been using the Nikon Z7 for some time and before that the D800.  But I still have the D300 and use it! 

What about you?  What is the oldest camera you use on regular basis?

When I converted my operation to digital some 9 years ago, I
purchased both the D3S and D3X. I added others cameras sin-
ce then but no other single digit bodies.

The two are used everyday for events, reportages, portraits etc,
my workhorses so to speak.

ADDENDUM

The D850 is kinda "welded" to the long lenses as the
D810's are for studio use and on location works.

Great question.  I have an original Canon 5D, which I still have and will use ever once in a while.  But let's be real here, it's an old camera, and it's only once in blue moon it's getting used.

Well, It's not in my camera bag, but on a shelf in my studio. My second digital camera was/is a Sony MVC-FD95 bought back in July of 2000. I've owned several other digital cameras since, but sold them. I'm now using a Canon 77D and considering a 90D. My in between cameras were Sony, Fuji, and Nikon, but I've now switched brands again, this time to Canon.

The old Sony is still here, and I still occasionally use it for quick shots, like Craigslist photos. I was given an external floppy disk drive that plugs into a USB port about 10 years ago, so getting the photos from the old Sony camera into my PC isn't as hard to do anymore. Before that I was keeping an old laptop with an internal floppy and Windows 2000 alive for the purpose. The Sony still does pretty good, if cropping isn't necessary, which is amazing for a 21 year old 1.7 megapixel digital camera. I paid about $1,200 for that Sony camera back in 2000. Keeping the Sony around helps me remember how far we have come in digital photo technology since then.

If you consider a Polaroid, then I have one from 1978 that actually still works.  What's funny is, that I just found this in my attic 3 weeks ago.  

Canon EOS 5D Mark II, 17-40mmL, 24-105mmL, 100-400mmL, 300mm f/4L IS, Sigma 12-24mm, 430EX, Extension tubes
