Yikes.
    LOL! So does mine. At least my husband would say so! But the majority of it (in my opinion) lives in the bedroom closet and in some plastic boxes on some shelving/under the bed.

    I've got various cases and bags for everything. Humidity isn't too bad most of the year in NYC, just in the summers. If you were to visit my apartment, it may not look like it, but I've been trying to pare down the last couple of years. I've basically got ten cameras, many lenses, some lighting equipment, and darkroom gear.

    I've been pondering the same question. I have yet to find or even think of, a good solution for all the various formats and cameras I won. Nothing is shaped like a box, and despite what seems like two dozen box sizes, the box is always too large or too small for a given camera system or format.

    I'm (very) slowly transforming a second bedroom (given it's size, more of a half-bedroom) into a darkroom. I put in four sets of the wire, baker's type shelving units, and that swallowed all but a 1/4 of my stuff. It's all in boxes, a few non-camera bags, and the LF stuff is just sitting out. Unfortunately, I need to move one of the units out to allow for the Beseler Adjus-Table that I'm working on putting together. I bought the fourth shelf just to stage everything and get it off the floor, not realizing I really need a FIFTH set of shelves to stage, not a fourth.

    Okay,...some great information here on this thread! Now if I could just have some addresses, we'll be all set.

    Actually, I have all my photo equipment (cameras, lenses, lighting, darkroom, etc.) in one climate controlled room (a.k.a.: the basement) when not in use. Same temp and humidity all year. The small camera gear (35mm/6x6/6x7) is stored (and transported around) in LowePro bags and backpacks. I'm considering, APUG sponsor, Photobackpacker's products http://www.photobackpacker.com/home.asp for my 4x5 & 5x7 gear. Everything, except for the custom tubs containing my lighting equipment, is stored on shelves. Tubs are on the floor.

    The so-called 'custom tubs' I mentioned are simply large Rubber Maid tubs with closed-cell foam padding I obtained from a local industrial supplier.

    I have a bunch of old but working cameras on the basement shelves that I use once in a while. These are just some old '6 x something' folders, a 127 camera or two, various 1950's vintage 35mm stuff, a 35mm half-frame camera, etc. I have one cheap generic camera bag that I use for what ever old camera I decide to shoot with on any given day.

    My address is not available by the way, and, the basement is guarded by, well.....I'll keep that part a surprise.

    Marc
