I mostly shoot large format so for me the question is how many film holders I have loaded. The answer is, it depends. In the winter when I shoot less, just what's left over from autumn, or maybe half a dozen if I'm contemplating a subject. In the spring and summer, most to all of them (46 4x5, 28 8x10).
Five. Mostly as those are the ones I've either just bought and am film testing or bought a while ago and have just got around to testing!
Well, let's see. The Nikonos V is loaded with Fuji 200 C41, waiting for some wet/winter weather; the F3 has a roll of Tri-X loaded; the Olympus Stylus Wide 100 has another roll of Fuji 200; and the Bronica SQ-Ai currently has a roll of Ilford SFX (the other film backs are empty because I've got no other 120 film). So that's four out of seven; the remaining [not loaded] cameras are a Nikonos III, my trusty Yashica Lynx 5000e, and my Yashica 635 TLR that I turned into a pinhole camera. None of my other cameras actually work, or else they are projects that I have not finished (there are quite a few of those!).
I don't always have the same, but currently there are 2 35mm loaded, both Holgas are loaded (with expired film), the Hongmei is loaded and in the diaper bag with the light meter, and I have 2 loaded 4x5 holders with the Crown Graphic (only shot 2 sheets the last time it was out). It's possible the Hasselblad has film in it and maybe even the Pentax 645N, but I think I just finished that one last week.
I do sometimes have to finish a roll in order to put in what I want to shoot, but I frequently get images that way that I really really like.
but gotta leave a couple empty to click before bed, no? :laugh:
Single frame 35mm loaded, black & white
Folding 35mm not loaded
Widelux is waiting for a CLA and is not loaded
Two 35mm slrs loaded, one black & white and one color
Hasselblad backs, therefore effectively the cameras, one black & white and one color
Two 4"x5" have two sheet holders loading with black & white and color and stored in the refrigerator in zip locked bags
none I don't let my cameras drink.:laugh:
how many are loaded?
Own 5 cameras, 4 are loaded, out of that 5, 2 will be sold soon. Trying to cut back (again).
35mm? none...not even batteries in any of 'em anymore. I quite shooting 35mm a while after the local lab closed. My darkroom skills are just not good enough to coax a decent print from those tiny negatives.
Medium format is a different story however. I have two medium format cameras and at least one of the two always has film in it. I've always got at least a handful of 4x5 film holders with film in them ready to go too.
