I agree with others who feel that virtually all folks who shoot film today are collectors. Most (I'm sure there are a FEW exceptions) who buy and shoot film cameras today have way more than they would if they were solely interested in shooting. Most probably have more old film cameras in their "collection" than a really dedicated professional ever had. Just read the majority of posts here and it's quite obvious.

I admit, I collect cameras, but I do shoot them all to one degree or another, and most I have invested in having serviced to bring them back to dependability. I will start selling them off eventually, keeping only the ones I really like, but in the mean time, it's fun to play with all of these variants. Never would have had the opportunity at full price. I enjoy the process of taking the photos and using the cameras as much as looking at the potots.
