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
