    I only had one camera for several years ( a minolta 800si), then I decided I wanted to really learn how to make photographs so I got a manual focus (x-700) that was interesting so I got a ziess folder, that was fun so I got a speed graphic...
    everything after that is kind of hazy...
    Real men use Speed Graphics and flashbulbs.

    By bouncing around from one camera to the other week by week do we ever get the best from ourselves or the camera? Kind of like a jack of all trades and master of none. From what i have read over the years it seems to me that most of the famous and not so famous photographers we hold with such reverance used one and only one brand or type of camera and sometimes only one lens for their camera. Why or how do I and others get so caught up in the gear?

    We do not always achieve this by doing so (and yes; definitely sometimes we definitely do achieve this by doing so), but whilst doing so. In other words, great photographers usually get the best from themselves and their camera, period, regardless of what it is or how many different ones they use.

    This thread is becoming either a "camera confessional" or a place to brag. To that I take my place at the podium and say "hello, my name is Joel (pause for obligatory greeting) and I'm a cameraholic. I had been clean for about twenty years with only the occasional cheap P&S but now that I have fewer children an a little bit more discretionary funds to play with I say to heck with it all I'm gonna go nuts and get what I want before the world comes to a screeching halt and we all get flung out into space. Thank you and goodnight."

    I expect some of us become masters of all trades and others, jacks of none (except that the last bit doesn't make any sense!).

    One can never have too many cameras! Too few however is a grave sin.

    I have the following:

    An Olympus half-frame camera
    An OM1 (35mm)
    An OM2s/p (35mm) plus lenses (18mm, 24mm, 50mm f1.8, 135mm f2.8, 35-70mm)

    A Contax G2 camera plus lenses (21mm, 28mm, 35mm, 45mm, 90mm)

    An Olympus E-3 camera plus lenses (50mm macro, 7-14mm, 12-60mm, 50-200mm)

    My "new" Mamiya 645 Pro TL camera (4.5x6) plus lenses - so far (55mm N/L, 80mm, 80mm macro)

    My dad's Box Brownie

    A Microcord TLR (6x6)

    Ebony 45SU (4x5) plus lenses (58mm XL, 75mm, 90mm, 120mm Apo, 120mm macro, 150mm, 180mm, 229mm (Cooke PS945), 300mm)

    Oh yes, and the digital compacts made by Olympus, Nikon & Leica...

    Did you say you had too many cameras and lenses? :rolleyes:
