    These are just the 35mm I have + 1 Instamatic that I think is 126 format. I think one or two is missing but I cant for the life of me remember what they are if they are missing.

    Argus C3
    Nishika 3-D 4-lens Camera
    Kodak 104/Outfit instamatic
    Zeiss Ikon Contina LK
    Canon FTb + Canon 50mm f/1.4 S.S.C.
    Kodak Pony 135
    Mamiya 1000DTL with a Mamiya 50mm f/2
    Zenit-11 with a Helios 44mm
    Canonet G-III QL-17 with the Canolite D next to it
    Olympus 35RC

    I have field cases for most of them, just not shown here.

    Maybe if I am bored again I'll gather the MF/LF and put them on the table to shoot... though might need a bigger table.

    Sorry. I was referring to the thread called No More Collecting For Me!. A buncha folks talking about their collections of cameras... whether they shoot or "merely" collect...

    You've got quite a collection there!

    Not surprised. You've got some sweet stuff there!

    I have three 35mm SLR bodies and a 4x5 monorail. Not much of a collector myself, but I can appreciate one.

    And I thought you really shot them... sometimes I get the impulse to shoot things, and 35mm cameras could make a nice moving target. Just throw them high up towards the sky, then try to shoot them with a 12-gauge double barrel...

    LOL, when we had a 'barely' working camera come into the store where the cost to fix it might be more than the cost we can sell it for, it would normally get added to our collection on the high shelves, but i once joked about ... "You ever wonder if we can rig a continous shutter on this, and drop it from atop the building to see what we can get off the film?"

    Oh another 35mm got added to the collection as of yesterday. A Canon EOS-1.

    George I will buy the shells for you if you want to shoot your M3. BUT, then you will lose the best camera you own.

    Well, apart from some scratches on the lens I don't think the M3 would suffer a lot from being shot with a shotgun...
