Hi, my name is Colton, and I have a problem.
Allow me to help...I hate to see these kinds of problems. I'll go out of my way and let you send me the 67. NOW, NOW don't thank me...It's the least I can do considering the size of this dilemma.

Actually you may notice the list is chronological.
I hope this link to my album will show SOME of the cameras.




This link is just cameras.

I have just cut down my collection to 2 cameras, I even sold my Pentax K5.
1 x Hasselblad 501c with 80mm (99.9% used) and 150mm lenses, I also have 3 backs.
1 x Leica M3 with Summilux 50/1.4 (colour) and Summarit 50/1.5 (B&W).

I'm tempted by other cameras, like Rolleiflex, Pentax 67 etc, but Iwill not cave in, for some time at least.

Later down the track I might get another Leica body with 0.72 finder and 35mm lens. This way I can have one body and lens for colour and another for BW.

The above setup might seem expensive, but it was a lot less than all my other lenses and bodies which didn't see any use. Now I have more cash for film.

I have a Pentax LX, Pentax MX, Pentax KX, Pentax K2, Olympus om2n Olympus om3 Olympus om4t, Nikon f3.


And regarding arnolds collection, I thought "how did this guy made that list" and then figured out that he must have the list in a .txt or a word document and then add a new item everytime he purchase or gets something new.

I like that your list finishes with a blank #90.
The rule I was told as to the correct number of cameras a person should have is n+1, n being the number you currently have

This seems like a good place to get some advice:

How do you get rid of things that are
- not used and not wanted
- not worth enough to bother selling piece by piece (pictures, descriptions, shipping,... all way too much work)
- not useless enough to just throw away
???

Stuff like this:
