    Bodies and lenses are in the safe. Accessories are in the cases or bags that correspond to a particular camera system, stored with the tripods in a closet next to the safe. Each kit contains a lens pen, appropriate batteries, etc, or anything else that pertains to its camera, and a checklist. There is a dedicated station for rechargables. I can be out the door with most any of my systems in minutes. Some vintage stuff is out on display, but goes in the safe if I'm going to be gone overnight or longer.

    Currently using one of the drawers of a metal filing cabinet. If I'm doing a roadtrip or a daytrip, I'll pack a couple bodies (or three) into the Domke F2, and an assortment of lenses. Otherwise, I'll grab whatever body I want to take and whatever lens I want.

    The irony is that most of our film gear is really of little interest to thieves. It's not worth what it once was, has serial numbers, and, most of all, too narrow a demand for a quick sale with no questions asked. Always exceptions of course.

    Problem is that the thieves are often too dumb to know this and will take it anyway. So I too keep the more valuable stuff in the gun safe. Or in a couple of small nooks and crannies that would be very difficult to locate.

    If a thief saw I have all these cameras I'm certain the next day he will come back and dump all the ones he has since no one will buy them anymore !!!

    Pawn shops will buy ANYTHING... at the right price. $5K of camera gear for a $50 pawn? Sure... come on in!! Thief gets one satisfying fix.

    BOTH!! I've learned from life's little "got you's". I'm skeptical, cynical, and I trust NO ONE. My first observation of theft from a trusted person was at age five. Ive seen too much since then to ever trust anyone ever again. In everything I do I know I'm taking a chance.

Unfortunately, I have yet to find one place large enough to hold and organize all this stuff. So currently its strewn-hither-and-yon with some light hints of a better future. Some of my bizarre photo interests have resulted in adding an alarming number of light stands, softboxes and a background stand that have further overwhelmed the closet space. Alas, in about forty years here, i am close to making this entire place a 1600 square foot walk-in closet.

    "Good luck" [hangs head in shame ....]
    I don't feel so bad. As much as I would like to say "all in one place" I have yet to find a plastic bin (that isn't ridiculously huge) that can hold my big Voigtlander lens mounted on a 9 in. board. it currently resides in a big cardboard box on a TV shelf.

    I have gear in closets, in bags and in bins on shelves and under the bed. :o:o If I go on, I'm going to realize just how much gear I own! :o Yikes!
