I have repeatedly sold off many of the bodies I have acquired.
They must be maintained, and how many can one person use?

Lenses OTOH require little maintenance, and keep accumulating...

The correct numberof cameras you should have is always N+1, where N = the number you currently have
Same with lenses...

I have 21 cameras total,
You have a long way to go, I am well past 100 and nearly all working film cameras. So far I haven't gone mad, so keep pushing the limits..

We're here to help. Oh, wait, there is an awesome deal on a working rangefinder on e-bay right now!
I spotted a Konica Hexar AF going for a decent price not long ago...that is the quietest automatic motor advance film cameras I have ever heard (or not heard) The silent mode is a hidden undocumented function, there are several features hidden in that well made camera.

All but two now are film... It's out of control. Is there a support group that promotes recovery? (as opposed this group which merely aids the addiction process...)
Hello C.T.,

Are you looking to sell some of your equipment?

Thnx,

Remember when you get to 665, you must either stop or buy two (or more) at once.

I'd probably own more cameras if I lived in a bigger place, so less storage is a good way to combat LBA & CBA!

I think that's what I running into now. We just don't have room for me to erect the "organizational aid" shelves I'd like to.

My wife wants us to renovate our attic into living space which I am dead-set against.

And she's getting craftier now because a new part of her argument for this work is that I will have more space to store my camera gear.

Evil. Just plain evil.

I know a guy who has an entire room dedicated just to pawn shop Graflex cameras. All four walls are lined with shelves holding bodies and accessories. He's north of 300, some of which have produced 40" enlargements hanging in another room.

Which even I think is obsessive.

That's just hogging them away from the rest of us - not very altruistic.
To be fair though, I was both consoled and frightened to learn I'm just two cams shy of *your* count ... which was never modest or secret here.
