    "hello, my name is Grif (pause for obligatory greeting) and I'm a cameraholic. I had been clean for about 2 months (oops,,, one week actually), but now that I have fewer children at home, 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. Of course, the funds are split between cameras, guns, radios, rc planes, one old bronco, and on, and on, and on, so I'm spending way too many hours at various meetings like this one.... ;-)

    Thank you and goodnight."

    I don't know if it'll help you or not, but for me I have too many cameras if I have a camera I never use, or multiple cameras that fill the same niche, which for me is a pretty wide covering thing. Basically I have one tripod bound system (4x5), and two handheld systems (FM2n and 645 Pro). I'm seriously considering getting rid of the Mamiya system now because I just don't enjoy it's bulk for handheld shooting and if I'm going to use a tripod, why not just shoot 4x5?

    Is three cameras too many? Not really, but I feel it's almost too many for me.

    Welcome on board our merry ship!

    I have just started to use the Mamiya 645 Pro TL for macro work (80mm lens plus auto macro spacer when needed), instead of using my Olympus E-3 digital camera because I think film give better results. I have a Contax G2 rangefinder, which is an excellent small camera for documentary work and low-light landscape photography when I don't want to lug my large format equipment around with me.

    I will be carrying my 645 with my 5x4 outfit and will use the 645 for close-up and macro field work, where LF macro is impractical. I did seriously consider the RZ67 but it is too heavy & bulky to be used in addition to my 5x4 camera, plus the fact that I usually carry a 6x9 rollfilm holder for the 5x4 camera. I think the 645 format is an excellent compromise - and for macro work I do like the luxury of the AE Prism Finder whilst using the WLF and spot meter for low level work.

    Having too many cameras is like having too much money or too much fun. (Hmm…*my GF wants to know where that 8x10 came from? )
