What cameras do you own?

Just wondering what kind of percentages use each type of camera. I made it so you can list up to 8 bodies, but not two of the same kind.

I regularly use a K10D and a K5. I have several film cameras which haven't been used in years. I suppose I should mention the camera in my Droid X2 phone.

I use a K10D and K-01, so I say I have 1 1/2 dSLR's, but I checked K-01 anyway.

That's why I'll never be a lawyer. Details often escape me.

Oh man, I can't believe I forgot a whole camera, my search for accurate data is ruined...oh well, I'll do it again when the next body is released.. if not sooner.

The details are in your images. I liked the 400 as a landscape lens series today!!

I've gone through 3 rolls of film so far. Just on the SQ as it arrived before the GS-1. 1st roll I ruined just figuring out how to spool it into the cartridge. The second two...well I guess I'll find out next week when I get the exposures back. I've been using the K-5 as a spot meter, but at that point I figure, why not just use the K-5? I'm going to sell the SQ and keep the GS-1, I like the 6x7 format, plus the GS-1 has a wider lens on it. With that money I'm going to pick up a second hand spot meter and try out the film without the K-5 as a crutch.

Waiting to get the exposures back is the best part! Can't wait to compare it to my notes. Big learning curve for me, these Bronica's are definitely not digital cameras!

Since i got the K5 I only use the K20D in bad weather or risky situations. I always take my K10D(IR converted) when I take my K5.

The K20D is just a backup camera now.

With 20 votes in, this already has my mind going. I better go take some pictures before I start offering up "expert analysis" of the numbers, with my take on what this means for Pentax as a whole, and possible repercussions of Pentax users. Early results put the K-5 as the most popular current body. Damn, I wish I hadn't left the K-7 off.

Now I need a poll to determine who's participating in this poll, and a poll to determine what they sold to get their most current camera, and one to find out who switched from another brand, and a poll to find out how old everyone is. I need a series of maybe 5 polls. The trouble with data, is, it always makes you want more data.
