    I was checking through my inventory of cameras last night and heres what I currently own...

    Nikon D40
    Nikon F801
    Nikon F601
    Olympus IS-1000
    Olympus Trip 35(real one, not the plastic 80s one)
    Pentax Opus 33
    Balda Baldessa 1b
    Minolta Zoom 110 Micro SLR
    Zeiss Ikon Ikonta C
    Agfa B6 Box Brownie
    Fuji 6700
    Halina 35mm Compact
    Kodak Instamatic 155x
    Ricoh 5MP Cpmpact

    Totalling 14, abd they all work and get used from time to time!

    What have you all got?

    6 myself...

    But I don't think the forum software can handle a full camera list of a certain green tight wearing forum member!

    Somewhere in the region of 60.... and I share the trip 35 and Balda Baldessa with the OPer!

    Too many to list, but the oldest is a 1911 Kodak No2 Folding Brownie and the newest a Canon G10. Oddest? Probably the set of all three Purma cameras.

    Up the gigabites mr webmaster! My problem is that i dont like throwing away working things (especially cameras), making myself use them all from time to time gives me good reason to keep them when other half complains about taking space up with junk!

    If you can count them you obviously haven't got enough.

    2 x DSLR (GX 20 & K10D), 1X35mmAF Film (ist*), Olympus Trip, XA2, Chinon EE, Dimage 7hi, Powershot A610,Kodak DX4900 and some more that I can't remember.
    Oh and my Pentax W60.So probably not enough

    lol thats changing... my other half and I have started visiting antique fairs and the like and I now go on bargain hunts for cameras etc. I used to have about another 20 but my ex threw them all away when we split up :(

    My opening bid is 5 Rollei, and as 1 Rollei trumps any number of any other marque, that puts me firmly in the lead.

    ...until, of course, one catches a glimpse of green tights approaching. :eek: :D

    Aaarghh! I went to check what was still here, and discovered that I am a closet Nikon owner. Literally! In a cupboard, I found an old Nikon AF230 keeping a box-lid down. Oh the shame... <font color="#333333"> the shame the shame <font color="#999999"> the shame <font color="#cccccc"> the shame <font color="#eeeeee"> the shame

    Hell, I don't even know how many Rolleis I've got... it's 5 35mm SLRs, 3 compacts (2 35S, 1 XF35), one 110, a couple of Babies, and I've really got no idea how many TLRs; 5 model Fs, a couple of Ts, several Es, a B, and various others. Oh, plus the 'Cords - again, lost count of them.

    And I've genuinely no idea how many other cameras - but it's loads. Far too many. ;)

    Another good contender is a certain Mr Demolder.

    I have not checked all the model numbers but here are some of mine:

    1884 Watson tailboard view camera
    Two box brownies
    Agfa Silette
    Canon Canonet QL G3
    Nikon L35AF - part of a "Nikon one touch kit" (inherited)
    Canon Canonet datematic
    Canon AE1
    Bronica 645
    Canon EOS600
    Canon EOS300
    Canon PowerShot G2
    Olympus E500 (on loan to my daughter)
    Olympus E510
    Olympus E-P1

    Several (probably all dead) 35mm point and shoot cameras
    Several cine cameras
    Several old Polaroids - film no longer available

    That lot won't win any prizes for quantity but might for the oldest.

    Interesting to note that both the oldest and the newest are view cameras - the wheel does turn a full circle sometimes

    I've just counted them, and it seems I have 19. As a cribbage player, that's not on.

    I had better get another one sharpish. :D

    The rest will just have to wait their turn
