I like having two cameras.
“Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”
Ansel Adams, from the introduction to The Negative - The New Ansel Adams Photography Series / Book 2
Two cameras is good, but dividing them up as we did with North America versus the rest of the world does dilute the spirit of the project.
Peter Marshall: When you pat a dog on its head he will usually wag his tail. What will a goose do?
Paul Lynde: Make him bark.
OK - seems like we've already reached somewhat of a consensus. Two cameras it is, then, and I'm picking up the Tri-X on Friday.
The two cameras are point and shoots once again, but different ones. Cool ones, actually! Final list coming this weekend for sure.
Both cameras are going to have to spend some time in the U.S. for sure. Perhaps we can send one to Europe, and then one can go to Moose in Japan so we can say that both cameras are truly international.

*6 - Camera 6 I believe had two cameras shipped but they traveled together and for this purpose I consider it 1 camera unit (per International Camera Trading Society, bylaw 78.3a).
However, like Steve says, let's pick names for them! These 9.1 and 9.2 names sound like software releases, heck these are analog cameras! Just no polarizing names such as, colour, organisation, aluminium

Rick, since we're doing two cameras, the deal is off. I want my two or three shots!

So all our pictures turn out technically perfect but slightly boring?
