    About 13 years. I had no intention of collecting cameras, but vintage cameras were a cheap way to get into 4x5 and medium format. I bought a few, and at some point someone decided I was collecting cameras, and people started giving them to me. I only buy cameras I'm interested in using, but if someone is giving one away I'll rescue it from the attic/closet/basement/trash, and give it a good home. Plenty of these don't work, or have issues.

    That's hard to say. Any of them that I can actually use could be my favorite of the day. The film cameras I use the most these days are a Widelux F6, an Ansco Titan 6x6 folder, a Super Speed Graphic, and a Rolleiflex 3.5E Planar, but there are a dozen or so more that get used occasionally, and would be hard to leave off a list of favorite cameras.

    In this photo there are three digital cameras, one toy camera (toy meaning an actual toy, it never took photos), and zero plate cameras. The rest are film cameras (I don't know how many, 140ish?).

    I can spot my first camera in that group--a Kodak Instamatic 124. I wonder what ever happened to that thing:meh:

    My god. And I thought having 5 cameras was a lot. I only have two, but.... oh wow.

    Watch out! That's how it starts. Once upon a time I only had one camera. And my bank account was in much better shape. ;)
