    I CAN'T agree on this. I'm a married male, I own a few cameras (that is : my "historic" AE1P, the T90-to-be-repaired-some-day, the EOS-3 system, the Rolleiflex, the 4x5 Tachihara( (does the Canon weather proof P&S count ? ) and got rid of some in the past years (a Sinar I liked but almost nevere used, a couple of Yashica Mats that doubled the Rollei) but I can't keep up with my wife getting rid of more and more outfits.... So please, make sure this non sense does not get out of APUG

    OTOH, even with this limited number of cameras, seems SWMBO can't remember how many I own

    I use,
    one Minolta SRT 101 for 100ASA film,
    one Minolta SRT 303b for colour slide film,
    one Minolta XE 5 for 400 ASA film,
    one Minolta XE 1 for 50 ASA film,
    one Olympus OM 2SP for macro with 50 ASA film,
    one Yashica Mat for landscape with 50 ASA film,
    one Kowa 6 for portrait with 200/400 ASA film,
    one Hasselblad 500CM is away for CLA,
    one Mamiya C330 for arms photography with 50 ASA film,
    All the others are for backup/spares and collecting, about 25.
    The enjoyment of craftmanship, when they were made, in those camera's allows you to have as many as you can afford.
    At 55, for me it is a sort reliving the past.

    Best regards.

    I have basically asked the same question. In an effort to reduce the capital tied up in different cameras, film, etc. thinking along the lines of "swiss army knife" of cameras.

    Personally I think I need one good SLR, one TLR, one rangefinder and another fixed lens rangefinder as a pocket camera. Probably a 4x5. That's all I need.

    (please, don't ask how many cameras I have...)

    I Can Not Enough ...

    I added a Kodak 66 Model III, and a Kodak Autographic 3-A to the collection last week.
    But, My XE-7, and X-570 died last week, so now I'm playing with the Canon Sure Shot,
    and Canon ELPH APS. Can't wait to get the Olde Bastards repaired !
