    Just One. Seven emergency backups though.
    Considerably AWOL at the present time...

I think if I did, I'd use them to the exclusion of the 6x7 for a good long time so I would get quite used to them again.
    I agree Suzanne, I feel that my best cameras are the ones that I'm most used to, the ones I can operate without thinking, which is why I've had almost all of my cameras more than twenty years and am still happy with them, constantly changing the tools and working methods is counter productive.
    I realized long ago that it's not the quality of the cameras and lenses I have that's holding me back from being a brilliant photographer just my lack of talent .

    I don't have just myself to think about...I have three 13-yr old boys. They have very different personalities, so having just one type of camera available for them won't do. I am in the process of getting a Mamiya 330 system together in case one decides to go medium format, plus I already have a Graflex TLR for lighter travel. I have an old Speed Graphic (wood front standard and a list of 24 different shutter speeds!) in case one wants to go 4x5 (it has a nice looking Carl Zeiss Jena Tessar 150/4.5 in a Compur), and I have a Nikon N2000 and some lenses if one wants to play with 35mm. I have a "spare" 8x10 (2D with 8x10 and 5x7 backs and a barrel lens) that they can use -- with supervision.

    So I need all this extra gear in case they show some interest!

    If they want to go digital, they can buy their own -- one boy saved his money and bought a Canon P&S digital. I never have had a darkroom at home, so the boys have not been exposed to that much. I hope to get them into the darkroom some this summer. They do get involved in my work on the other side of the lens.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    If I can afford it (and luckily I can) one for every mode of working and perhaps a backup. So it changes with the way I work, which makes the industry and Ebay sellers happy.

    John, I just did an inventory of the cameras I have acquired over the past few months and I was astonished at the number. I thought that my wife was exaggerating but now I see that she actually low balled the number. I bought several cameras for the extra lenses and then never sold the bodies and some came as multiples in a purchase but all the cameras I have I like and use. Some are for specific use and some just because I like them but I still have a list of wants. I am chagrined to say that I have a rather huge collection and there appears to be no end in sight but to answer you question, one of each format but the actual number is seventy-three.

    I have one 35mm kit with a couple of lenses, 6x6 kit that consists of a C-330 and C-220 bodies along with a few lenses, and a 4x5 kit with a couple of lenses. My mainstay is the 6x6, and shoot the 35mm less than any, and am learning to use the 4x5. For super portability I shoot an Isolette 6x6 folder, and guestimate exposure, simplicity at its finest.

    I am blessed to married to an extremely tolerant woman but there are limits to what she can handle at any one time.
