    Just curious..

    What do all of you do with your acquired collections of cameras? Are they neatly packed into a case and hidden away... or some bank vault.. gun/rifle cabinet? Are they on display? If so, what do you use as a display case? Is it tucked in a corner or one of the highlights of a particular room?

    My cameras were spread throughout the house.. on book shelves here and there...a few on a desk... some on a window sill. The wife said she would rather have them in one area so I set out to find an inexpensive glass display case. I found this:

    at ikea and it only costs about $60 bucks. I ended up buying two on two different occasions and the cameras are slowly finding their home in them. I've got a few clear acrylic stand/risers from ebay on the way to take advantage of the large space between the shelves... and present the stuff a little better. Keeps the dust off and makes it easy for me to grab and go...

    Looks nice! I love that Asahiflex!

    Mine are in a display case mounted to the wall over my piano.
    The lesser-quality cameras are in a tall-floor case, which I will take a pic of later.

    Here is the wall-mount.

    Haha. I'm working on buying a house--it's an elaborate scheme just to have a darkroom and a place to display the gear. In my current apartment they're strewn about.

    No rolleis. :(

    There is a Minolta autocord, yashica-A, and a Kodak Reflex pictured. I have recently acquired a Yashica-MAT and an argoflex(the good one) as well.

    I wasn't planning on going much more than he posted... but I was willing to be flexible. My true aim is for a Rolleiflex but I still wouldn't mind getting my feet wet with a Rolleicord.
