Photography odessey:

Fujica AZ-1 (1977) 1st SLR
Honeywell Pentax ES (used)
Minolta SRT101 (inherited)
Minolta 35mm film P&S ??model (dropped in water fishing)
Olympus 35mm film P&S ??model (x2)

Kodak Easyshare digital P&S
HP 5.0 MP P&S (use for fishing photos -- saltwater so no higher cost equip taken)

Realized this digital thing might have a future. Hung up the SLR 35mm.

Pentax K2000D
K Mt: 18-55 & 50-200 kit lenses, Vivitar 70-210/f3.5
M42 Mt: SMC Tak 55/f1.8, Vivitar 135/2.8, Soligar 200/f3.5, Super Tak 300/f4, Vivitar 400/f5.6

Love digital. Can take a bunch of shots, view & adjust on the fly, post review & process. Auto-bracketing. Man, I love technology. If I had this in 1977 (22 year old student) I would have flunked out --- between fishing and photography.

Oh, so we're including non-SLRs now, are we? Well, in that case...

Currently on hand:

Ansco Anscoflex, Panda (TLRs)
Argus Argoflex_E (TLR), C3 (two of them)
Canon SureShot 80u (zoom P&S)
Conley Model XI (9x14cm LF)

Kodak Brownie Box 620, Brownie Movie, Brownie Starlet, Brownie Starmite, Monitor (6x9 folder), Signet 35, Brownie Flash, Brownie Twin 620
Lavec LT-002 (Diana clone)
Minolta Autocord (TLR), F300 (IR mod), 16 (spy cam)
Olympus 770-SW
Petri 7-S (2 with 45/2.8, 1 with 45/1.8)
Sakar Digital Concepts
Sony DSC-P10, DSC-P20, DSC-V1
Universal Mercury II CX
Vivitar IC-400
Voigtlander Vito II (35mm folder)
Whittaker Micro-16 (spy cam)
Yashica GSN Electro 35
Zeiss Ikonta B 521/16 (6x6 folder)

No longer available:

Ansco Speedex Special R (folder), Autoset (Minolta HiMatic)
Akira TC-002 (Diana clone)
Canon Demi-EE17, Dial-35
Graflex (9x12cm press cam)
Kodak 35 RF, Automatic 35F, Instamatic 500, Retina I, Retinette 012, Retinette 022, Tourist
Minolta AL-F
Olympus XA
Sony DSC-V1, DSC-W7, Sony Hi-8 (I forget the model)
Yashica Lynx-5000, YashicaMat 124g (TLR)

And I've left out a few -- some are forgotten, like an old RF from Wetzlar, and some are just misplaced, like a hand-carved 6x9cm deluxe pinhole job. And I've still left out webcams, rough pinhole cams, phone.cams, scanners, and other misc imaging devices. More may appear the next time I unpack, ?quien sabe?

Well if we're including non SLR's, I could include my collection.
I've been collecting old kodak's for years. Must be 75-80 of them
starting from 1898. Too lazy to list them all. About a third are
box cameras. The rest folders

(Pentax K-5 is next)

Mirrorless near-DSLRs:

Plus scads of other film cameras including some very old Kodak Brownie box cameras, a couple of Kodak bellows-type cameras, a Kodak Instamatic or two, a compact Agfa 127-film camera, a compact Vivitar non-SLR 35mm zoom camera (not a bad piece of kit at all) and a few Polaroid Land cameras.

Ye Gods, even confining to SLRs, quite a few, if we count all states of repair.

But a number passed through my hands at least once (I used to fix em up and give/loan em to photo students, probably not a show-stopping number, but I don't know how I'd count.

I think I was down to just an FTb and an AE-1P and whatever of mine my sister had for a long while there.

So how many do you have?
I really don't want to go there, I had heavily invested in one system (Nikon) which let me down badly due to its lack of dust seals, which is not great when on assignment working in the Middle East for extended periods, film, mechanics and sand just don't get on.

The flagship Pentax in those days was the LX and these saved my "bacon" (no pun intended), a switch I don't regret as I'm still to this day using much of my manual glass.
