Some others have actually counted, and admit to having more than I do.
Now I don't feel so bad!

Film Cameras

Pentax K1000
Minolta HiMatic 7S
Minolta SRT101
Minolta SRT101b
Minolta X500
Minolta Autocord CDS1
Mamiya RB67 Pro S
(Kodak) Brownie Folding 620

All work well and are much more enjoyable to use, for me, that digital.

Alright, alright. It's time to 'fess up.

Offhand I can count 20+ working 35mm SLRs.
I own more Pentax bodies than any other brand.
The Nikons are running a close second.

I can't recall how many 35mm non-SLR cameras I own
but the total probably far exceeds the SLR count.

I have a Voigtlander Bessa coming, which was the only camera I sold and regretted.
Medium format folder or the recent 35mm rangefinders?

I have little desire to expand the systems I own, but the two things that appeal to me are a 6xX folder (would love a late model Fuji GF) or a well made rangefinder like the Nikon S or the Bessarabia R2 (Id mention Leica, but one lens for that would cost more than all my other camera equipment combined.)

Three. ME Super, K1000 and PZ-1. Of the three, I need to sell two, as I rarely shoot film anymore, and neither of my kids are getting into photography beyond their phones. The K1000 and the PZ-1 will appear in the Marketplace in the near future. The ME Super will remain in my bag. Besides for being a wonderful little camera, it has a lot of sentimental value that one can't put a price on.

It's the Bessa L 35mm version. I had one years ago with the 15 f/4 lens and viewfinder (amazing ultra wide angle lens). But I sold it to fund the purchase of my K10D and FA 77 Limited. What I have coming is the L with the 25 Color Skopar. The Bessa R has always intrigued me, but then I'd want Leica lenses and eventually a Leica camera. That would seriously cut into my camera collecting funds.

One of the cameras I'm saving for is a good Pentax 67ii. Sometime hopefully.

I have 33 Pentax cameras, 31 of them work. I have a number of other film cameras, I would estimate 20-30, with most of them working (like 2 or 3 non-working).

Pentax MX, 2 KX's, K2, K2dmd, SP F, SP.
Nikon F3, FE, FE2
Minolta Srt 202, XE7, 2 XD 11's.
All are in use, I started buying various body's to see which ones worked best for me. I've sold a Nikon F, F2 and FM, Olympus OM2n. The only one I'd sell right now is the Minolta XE7.
All were virtually free taking into account the value of the glass that came with them. Amazing!
I'll eventually pare the collection down to 6. I'm just not sure which 6 I want the most yet.
I now have no interest whatsoever in digital photography.

2x Spotmatic F and a No. 1A Pocket Kodak. All 3 work and I still use the Spotmatics fairly regularly. The spotmatic was my first good camera and I never moved away from it until I went digital. Several years back I realized that I may be on borrowed time with it so I bought a second body that was basically unused. The pocket kodak was something I bought because it was $20 and I figured if it didn't work it looked neat and could sit on a shelf. Well it works and it sits on a shelf anyways.

None. I'm not a collector or emotionally attached to cameras, cars or audio equipment. For me, they're tools.
