    Thats a tuff one.
    With four 35mm bodies from the house of Nikon it will probably be one of those I would sell of if necessary. But which I don't know. Im kind of hanging on to them because of nostalgia. The F90X is the one that see the most action, then the FE2 and the newly given to me FM. The Nikormat FT3 mostly sits in the cabinet collecting dust. I was tampted to give up my P6X7 for a short while cause Im looking for a 5X7" camera but I came to my senses fortunately

    Generally, if I sell something, I find I need it for an article six months later and have to borrow one (or buy another one). Most of my cameras are worth so little that it's not worth the effort of flogging them -- things like the Praktisix, assorted folders, etc. -- and the ones I use are mostly the ones that are worth anything. I suppose the Graflex XL is worth enough to make it worth selling. Eventually, too, I think the Gandolfi 12x15 inch will go: ULF is just so much hassle, and a 2,5x enlargement off 5x7 inch is a little bigger, still grain-free and sharp, and a nicer shape.

    Cheers,

    R.

    Hmm.

    Couldn't I just take out a loan or go busking or sell a couple of kidneys instead?

    Some months back, I sold my entire Nikon 35mm system, F100 and optics like 20,24,35,85,105 and 180mm.
    Why? `Cause it was gathering dust on the shelf, I can`t keep a piece of equipment I don`t use!

    Cheers

    I only sell my digitals from time to time with a fraction of what I paid for!.-(((
    All analogs have to work from time to time!
    And it is not possible to have to much cameras it is only possibily to miss some!
    Good light and nice shadows!

    I've got a number I'm going to unload shortly - cluttering up the house and not getting used. The Calumet C-1 (Green, Magnesium) 8x10 with just about every accessory they made for it (both reducing backs, the compendium lens shade, a handful of lensboards, and even a recessed lens board), an Agfa/Ansco 4x5/5x7 (I only have the 4x5 back for it), a pair of Contax 167 MT bodies, the 35-70 and 80-200 zoom lenses for them.

    That's a thorny one!
    I guess it would have to be one of my two EOS 500 bodies, with a Sigma 28-105.
    I'd hate to do it though - I occasionally use the two cameras bolted together for stereo photography.
    Everything else gets used too often to lose voluntarily.

    If she was my aunt Sally, and considering the price of private medical treatment, if I sold all my photographic equipment ( all of it at least twenty years old ) she would just have to "soldier on" because it wouldn't be enough to pay for it.

    Great Aunt Sally is in critical condition and needs a left foot little toe transplant operation in order to continue her fan dancing career
    What? I'd sell a toe to buy a camera!

    I'm happy that I live in a socialist country with a reasonably good public health care system. I'll keep my cameras, thank you. I might even consider getting another one...
