I'm still recovering from G.A.S which (since I worked in camera stores for more than twenty years where I had unlimited access to the equipment myself and I could observe other fellow suffers at close quarters) was a serious problem at one time I've bought only one camera and two lenses in the last fifteen years or so, but like alcoholics I'm still in recovery we are never cured.
1 unspeakable. :p
mamiya rb67 pro-sd
canon ae-1 program
All in pretty mint condition considering how well used they are and or have been.
4 Pinhole cameras (6x6, 6x9/6x12, 6x18 and a zero image 6x45/6x6/6x9)
Pentax 67ii (although will likely sell this kit soon)
Polaroid 250 Land camera (Qty 2)
Canon 50d (Qty 2) - Although they both have issues, been hitting them too hard at events.
Canon EOS 3 (Qty 2) - i don't shoot them much at all.
Olympus and Canon under water point and shoots
35mm canon point and shoot
Canon EOS IX
Canon EOS Rebel G
Yachiamat 124G (I don't shoot this often at all.)
Three more than I did last week... Got a Yashica Electro 35 GS, and GTN on the way, as well as a Kodak 120 box cam with case. I really need to stay away from the auction sites, and thrift stores.
Added one more to the .sig.
I joined APUG understanding it was a forum for users of film/plate cameras and predominantly silver galatine materials
What pointless threads one like this shows me is that there are too many camera collectors and non-workers on this forum - If you think it is clever to have a room full of cameras you don't or can't use on a regular bases at least have the decency of keeping your greedy, nasty little habit private and rhythmically stroke your "precious" in the dark
Now use your cameras or get rid of them
No. You joined misunderstanding that!

Kodak Brownie No. 2 (red bellows)
Kodak Junior Six-16
Mamiya 645 Pro-TL
I use the 645 99% of the time for both travel & vacation shots and the RZ67 for my "Serious" work. The No.2 Brownie comes out with me sometimes depending on where I'm going. The Junior Six-16 is still NIB, with all paperwork, and the original receipt. That I will never touch.
