    I've got far too many........... a terrible case of GAS I'm afraid........:rolleyes:

    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

    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.

    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.
