What's your stock.......

Recommended Posts

.... of cameras amount to?

 

Just changing the usual subject matter I wonder what sort of and amount of cameras you still have and more importantly use.

 

For myself I unashamedly admit that at 70+ I've never sold a camera in my life from my first Brownie Box onwards. Bodies now amount to 38! And lots of lenses. Still use 20 plus of them as well.

 

You?

 

Just a fun thread

First was a Canon AE-1 back in the 80's.  Got out of photography until a few years ago when my son gave me his Canon t4i (650D).

I borrow his Canon 7D periodically.

Finally got myself a Sony RX100 M2.

That should od me for awhile.  More interested in acquiring better glass than bodies.

My first camera was a HALINA TLR bought new on the never-never.

 

I've had a few since then always advancing into the better models when I could. Can't remember all of them now and would probably be embarrassed to remember them anyway.

 

Then I started to collect old cameras and ephemera and at one stage had over 500 models of all makes from all countries including wood and brass (which I used to refurbish), leica, etc etc. It would be too long to go into all of them here.

 

Unfortunately when I moved house back in 2004 there was not enough room so had to sell them off through good old eBay.

 

Today I have Nikon D750, two Sony A6000, and my trusty RX100.

I used to use a Canon Sureshot auto film camera. Think it's still around somewhere. Man, that camera took great pictures, I won competitions with it. Hubby shot with a traditional Pentax film camera and the Sureshot turned out better pics. That's because the camera made the decisions, lol.

I now have a Nikon N80 film camera. My first serious camera.

But I quickly got into digital and upgraded the crop Nikons until FF D800. They are all gone except the N80.

I now have:

Nikon N80

RX100

RX100mk3

Fujifilm X-T1

Fujifilm X-T2

And a slew of lenses for the X-Ts.

Nikon FG20

Nikon F70

Nikon D200

Nikon D800

Nikon D7100

 

Best lens Nikkor 105mm macro (got it for finishing graduate school in 1993 and use it constantly!)

 

Still own all these but might donate the F70 to my daughter's Junior High School as they only have one film camera and still teach film photography and developing in Industrial Arts

 

For Chuck, if I can't sort out my focus issues due to my aging eyes, I might be convinced to sell the lot for a 1969 or 1970 Barracuda

1989 Jaguar Lister Le Mans 6.0 litre turbo charged convertible.

 

Here's a front view of my car that Mustangs never saw. Usually restricted to seeing the tail lights in the far distance! LOL

Ohhhhhhhhh - would never post this on here .... the wife may see it!!

 

Plus the greatest fear I live with is that if I die before she does she will sell my camera gear for the price I told her I paid for it!

Cars, boring, (we have a 7 year old diesel tug that carries our bikes and hauls a small caravan), prefer to talk about bicycles, but back to cameras.

 

Embarrassingly large collection of junk, including my first SLR, an EXA500, a lovely Rolleicord bought secondhand for £25 many years ago, a series of Pentax SLRs, a couple of Olympus SLRs, and a Bronica set up. Under pressure from her indoors to dispose of all of them.

 

Of usable stuff a Canon 450D (kept to use with a 300mm lens) and 5DII and, the one that actually gets taken out, a Sony NEX 6.

Oh no I don't!! Smashed my shoulder horseriding while jumping.

I have a very heavy Gitzo tripod instead. And a HUGE bag for it which replaces a suitcase when I fly. A total headache.

Yes, the 105 is the best Nikkor I ever owned. I regret not keeping it and adapting it.

If I had an hour to kill I'd type up your list, ReeRay. And, Betty -- I still have two Nikkor 105s, with a conversion mount for the Sony NEX cameras.

Wow.  I seem to be odd man out.  I've only ever kept one camera.  Right now the Nikon D810.

On longer trips, I sometimes get a fleeting worry if my one camera fails, but so far over 12 years, none ever has.

I know, I know... some professional I am!

My main camera is a 6D w/3 L lenses, 17-40, 70-200 & 300, 5D as backup. Tried all sorts of lenses, but pixel-peeping led me to this set. In my quest for a small camera I've bought Canon M & Sony RX100, but prefer IQ of DSLR. Still have dozens of film cameras awaiting their turn on eBay, including Nikon F2, F3, FM2 and some others, and Minolta, Konica, Pentax screw mount.

I once had this behemoth Klimsch Praktika Reprokamera. I still have it's big Rodenstock lenses; the huge shutter; the bellows and the film back. The rest was scrapped in the end. It had been used for map making.

The rest of my lenses range from 17mm to 600mm.

 

Sold the Leica's; the Speed Graphic; the Sinar 8x10, some OM1 OM2 and OM4's; Hasselblad 500CM and ELM.

In total 4 OM4ti's got stolen.

Still regret selling the Speed. Drab olive!

10 bicycles or so. Well between us. Just bought our third Brompton and inherited my mother's electric Giant.

Oh wow! You want me to include the stuff I've sold? I'm gonna need two hours for that list. 

 

Reimar, in the words of the song, you are a cock-eyed optimist. I used to travel with 6 camera bodies, finally cut that to 4. The first day I took just 3 bodies, 2 of them jammed. On the phone from Rio, Nikon Professional Services talked me through a fix on both cameras.

ReeRay,

 

If I remember right, the longest skid marks ever measured were left my Jaguar......

 

Mustangs don't skid, they just go really fast in a straight line..
