Hello - the zombie thread curse has spread, I see.....
How do you post an empty message? The editor moans at me if I try that...
My collection of cameras is down to 35 - Lord only knows why I bought so many - I've used at least 15 of them the rest are still boxed up , all have lenses .

Yashica Mat medium format in case [ working ] .
My favourites [ and the ones I've used mostly ] are the D7000 , F80 , F90 , F301 , F801 , Coolpix S3300 , Canon EOS 5 , AE-1 ,, Mamiya ZM Quartz , Zorki 4k , Olympus OM4 and my Yashica Mat
I've been telling my wife I was going to sell most of them on Ebay but I never got round to it .
I've got far too many........... a terrible case of GAS I'm afraid........
It used to be called 'Phiggying' or 'Phiggyitis' in fond allusion to a former member who was particularly prone to resurrecting dormant threads...
You been sneaking in and eavesdropping on my conversations with my wife? I cannot believe there is other people out there who hoard these wonderful useless.items.I did actually buy some film to say that i did actually use them but sadly I am a camera collector. I got the big late and there are so many beautiful cameras to caress
I understand the concept it is actually parting with any of them I am unable to sell its like which child would you put up for care nope not happening.
I have that conversation with my wife I know what she wants to do go and spend the cash on nonessential stuff likelike good and stuff like that
I`ve got nowhere near as many as some have said but here it is:
Canon Powershot 530
Sony Alpha A350
Kodak Brownie 127
Sony Alpha A100(retired since it overheats and turns itself off)
good idea to keep this 2010 thread for short lists and the new one for long lists. Though I suppose anything bought since 2010 shouldn't count.
one less than I will probably have in three months time.
Yashica TL Electro
Fuji Finepix S1Pro
Fuji Finepix S2 Pro
Nikon 1 V1
Nikon 1 S1
More than I need, fewer than I'd like...
I think I'm currently at 69½, though I wouldn't be able to find all of them, some of the old digital compacts may well have been thrown out.
The half being justified as part of my large format kit. I have two complete 5x4 cameras, with spare standard, bellows, lens boards, ground glass etc which together make up slightly more than half another camera, but are not quite a complete system.
Quite a few have been brought for the lenses that came with them rather than the body. I'm currently bidding on another too.
I think about 10 of them have been used in the last year (for taking images) about the same again have been played with without film to check function, or investigate features etc.
