How many cameras do you own?

1 month 1 week ago #764573 by Photo Amigo
When you buy a new camera are you keeping your old or selling?  I just ran into a guy who is 61 and never sold any of his cameras, but have bought a number of new ones.  He has 9 cameras and still uses all of them.  

Curious, how many cameras do you own?

Six digital still and two digital video.

I also have one still film and one video film. I haven't used either of the film cameras in 26 years. I went totally digital in 1998 and haven't looked back. The film cameras are display items, as are the two oldest digital still cameras, but when I last checked, about 2 years ago, they all still worked.

I have 6 that I use. 3 Nikon and 3 Olympus. One of the Nikons is mirrorless the other 2 are DSLRs. One is full frame, the other two are APS-C. All of the Olympus are mirrorless and one is IR-converted. Now that doesn't include my point-and-shoot digitals or my film SLR's and rangefinders

How are you liking mirrorless?

I like that the mirrorless are so small and light. I'm not too fond of having to use an adapter on my older Nikon DSLR lenses. At present, I only have two consumer-grade Z mount zooms. I wouldn't say I like that they have plastic mounts and are so slow. That said, they are fairly sharp.

Just the one. But I was looking at a Canon AE1, but haven't found the one yet.

The Yashica MAT 124G and the Canon FX use mercury batteries which aren't available anymore. I bought the Yashica new and used it a few times. The Canon came with a long (no name) zoom lens, which was too big for my shelf, so I bought a nifty-50 off eBay for it. The Konica FT-1 and Canon were gifts from a friend. She used the Konica and her mother used the Canon. I had to clean the battery compartment of the Konica (the batteries had leaked), and glue the battery cover which had split, but it works, including the motor drive.
The Argoflex uses 620 film which isn't available anymore (not to mention the flash bulbs.) It was my mother's. I had a 35mm Minolta HiMatic and developed my own film, but didn't have an enlarger, so I would borrow the Argoflex and make contact prints.
I haven't gotten any film packs for the Polaroid SX-70. I bought it for my mother for Christmas when they first came out.
The Nikon S and the Exa seem to work. I bought the Nikon for $50 from an airman in '72 while I was in the Navy, and used it a few times. The Exa was a gift from my landlord while I was stationed in Scotland. He bought it in Germany when he was serving in the British Occupation Zone after WW II. I've never used it.
I can't vouch for the accuracy of the shutter speeds, but in all other respects, they work as well as I can check them.
