Is my wife going to see this?
If so, about 10.
If not, about 45
And 3 of them are broken.
I feel so inadequate...
the title should appropriately be "Camera Hoarders" I think we just cornered the market

Not in use:
Kodak Instamatic 36 (not in use anymore, but still working);
Polaroid EE44 (going by memory, not working since decades)
Sony DSC-R1 (digital)
Voigtländer Vito CLR
Canon Canonet G-III QL
My cellular phone can take pictures although it sees practically no use.
I also have a disposable film camera in the gloves compartment of my car since ages, that's for the case of car accident, I think in case I would use the camera in my cellular phone instead, but there's no need to remove the camera from there. This very evening somebody broke into my car (damaging the lock but not breaking the glass, thank goodness) and did not take the disposable camera, see where we have arrived.
I miss the smell of instant film, which would bring me back to when I was 15 years old, and the next fit of insanity will probably result in some sort of instant camera just for the smell of it
PS God save me from the temptation of trying medium format!
PPS I advice to make a list of all your photographic gear (camera, lenses, flashes, light meters whatever) and take a note of each and every serial number. This can be useful in case of theft.

I gave mine the distinction of being chosen for use with a proper 126 film before I used the cartridge for reloading with 35mm. Here's the set: http://www.flickr.com/photos/6550287...7629177962141/

Guys, you need to watch out for the idea of conducting an inventory of your photographic equipment.
I have been doing this, and it is turning out to be very embarrassing. The inventory is over 80 pages long at this time. Yes, it does include not only the bodies with the serial numbers and date of purchase, and that kind of information, but also the lenses, the accessories, including a surprising quantity of filters and similar things, almost all of the electronic flash units, the darkroom gear, and other stuff.
Just the time that it takes to print out this thing is embarrassing.

When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."
