i know there has been a desert island thread and a fess up , how many cameras do you own thread and a what was your last piece of gear you purchesed thread ... i am just wondering in the end how many cameras do we really need ? i am not really one to talk about using just one camera. i have too many but i can't really get rid of them because i keep telling myself i use them all them all the time in different situations so ... in the end i keep them. i don't know how many cameras i really need. maybe one, that would be perfect, but unfortunately it is hard to stick a sheet film camera in my pocket and wander around with it, and even harder to do contact prints with a 110 or 1/2 frame 35mm negative. as much as i want to only have 1 camera i find myself torn, torn between what i want my final print to look like, ( teeny vs big ) and between portability. i guess i answered my own question, we need as many cameras as we need.
