I think is is a non-US version of the Nikon N75 that is having an identity crisis and is regressing from a Nikon F75 to a Nikon FE75. If the regression gets really bad it will become a Nikon FED75 and start speaking Russian!

I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
Currently, not very many.
Nikon F5 (actually in my hands, as in, I can grab it and shoot with it)
Nikon F FTn (2/3rd's paid off - should be paid off by the weekend and then shipped out next week)
Pentax Super A (bought this for a friend - still need to get the paperwork necessary to cross the border into Canada and deliver it to him)
1 Canon point 'n shoot mainly used for film camera pr0n.
In the past, I've owned up to 13 cameras at a time.
In January 2006:
Nikomat FTn parts camera
Nikon F2A x2
Nikon FM x2 (one black, one chrome)
Nikon FM2n x2 (one parts camera, one frankenstein camera)
I think the happy medium for me will probably be three Nikon film bodies. My F5, my old F2AS, when I get it back, and my F FTn.
Since 1984, I've owned:
4 Pentax H3v/SV cameras (three H3v's, one SV)
5 Pentax Spotmatic cameras (two SP, two Honeywell 1st gen, one Spot F parts cam)
3 ME Supers (two worked, one didn't)
SF10 - didn't work
2 Nikkormat FT bodies (one working, one donor)
24 Nikkormat/Nikomat FTn bodies (some functional, some parts)
16 Nikkormat/Nikomat FT2 bodies (same as above)
4 Nikkormat FT3 bodies
3 Nikkormat/Nikomat EL bodies (two worked, but weren't that great, one had dead cells)
3 Nikon FE bodies (one worked, two parts)
2 Nikon FE2 bodies
9 Nikon FM bodies (some parts, some ok)
3 Nikon FM2 bodies (early model - one good, two parts)
22 Nikon FM2n bodies (two parts bodies)
13 Nikon F bodies (two junkers)
12 Nikon F2 bodies
12 Nikon F3 bodies (two Press versions included, and two parts cameras)
15 Nikon F4 bodies
5 Nikon F5 bodies
2 Hasselblad 500c bodies
1 Hasselblad 500EL body (junker - came with an 80/2.8 T* that was good)
2 Leica R4 bodies
1 Minox IIIS
168 cameras since December 1st, 1984. Between 1984 and 2004, I'd owned ten total. One of the Pentax H3v bodies, three Nikkormat/Nikomat FTn bodies, a Nikkormat FT2, an FM2n, two FM's, the Minox, and one of the F3P bodies. Cameras started exploding in early 2005 for me. Discovered that I could try something for two months, get bored, then get something else. Usually, a week or so later, I'd miss the old item and either get it back or get one just like it. Still doing it, I see.

I OWN OVER 800 CAMERAS THE OLDEST DATES FROM THE LATE 1800s.TO THE EARLY 1900s
That's certainly a good start to a collection!

Amended: three Polaroid cameras (a 100 pack film, a 360 pack film, and the 900? Roll film.)
Also the newvicon can be re-written as working perfectly.
Sometime soon I will actually catalog the make and model of all the cameras I have. It isn't that many, but I'd rather take pictures than count cameras.
Nikon F (64 black)
Nikon F (67 silver)
Canon Rebel S2
And three 35mm point and shoot cameras.
Hmm. Not counting broken and useless junk my wife brings home from auctions (sometimes she brings home great stuff, though!):
8x10 B&J Grover monorail view camera
5x7 B&J wooden tailboard view camera in very rough shape
4x5 early Zone VI view camera
Rolleiflex New Standard (March, 1939)
Agfa Isolette 6x6 folder
Minolta 800si 35mm
2x Minolta 7xi 35mm (kinda went a little overboard when cameras I'd always wanted years ago became almost free on Ebay.)
Petri 35mm e.Bn rangefinder with the 45mm f/1.9 lens
Yashica Electro 35 rangefinder
Yashica Big Mini point 'n shoot
I use all of them regularly, except for the 7xi's which have taken a back seat to the 800si. I actually like the 7xi's better but they eat 2CR5 batteries like candy and that's expensive these days. The Rolleiflex has film winding peculiarities which means that film advance is by counting revolutions of the crank handle; amazingly, the antique Selenium photo-cell meter on the Petri rangefinder still works! Not exactly a "low light" solution though! Doesn't register below about EV 5 or so. The Yashica Electro lives underneath the passenger seat in my car and is just quietly, without fuss, a superbly competent camera. The Big Mini rides in my coat or jacket pocket where it constantly nibbles on its battery. The Zone VI 4x5 gets used the most, followed by the 8x10 and then then 800si, the Rolleiflex, the Isolette, and the Petri in no certain order. The Petri came out of a box of "stuff" my wife brought home from an estate auction. Dear woman!
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming– “Wow! What a Ride!”
— Hunter S. Thompson
I suppose I'm quite lucky to have my Petri come to me in good working order. Apparently there are a lot of faulty or broken ones out there, and they have odd internal enginnering, so they are difficult to repair. Apparently spare parts are hard to source too.
