About thirty-some digital cameras in toto, including six iDevices with cameras. I made a list that I think is pretty complete to figure it out.

Then I started to make a list of all the film cameras I've owned/own. I stopped at 82 cameras, and I'm sure that's less than half the real number.

I've been making photographs since about 1962 or so; bought my first 'quality' digital camera in 2002. It makes sense that I have owned/own three times the number of film cameras compared to digital cameras. Still own a bunch of both.

So ... What's the point of doing this poll, concentrating on how many digital cameras one has owned? It's entertaining to count, for sure, but why a poll?

Hokey-Smokey! You have been at it a decade longer than I have, but in 44 years I count fewer than ten 35mm, one MF, and three LF cameras. Add in five digital, including three point and shoots.

Canon 10D
Leica M8
Leica M9
Fuji X100
Nikon D2Hs
Nikon D2Hs (for only a few days)
Fuji X100
Nikon D3
Nikon D300s
So it's ten for me. The only ones I ever owned together are the Leicas.
I really want to find a low shutter actuation count Canon G12 or G15 and be done with it.

Not counting the cameras on the various cell phones I've owned, the list is:
* Minolta Dimage 7i
* Olympus C-7070WZ
* Ricoh GRDIII

I own none of those at this time. Film only at the moment other than my smartphone (a Pixel 2 which does a dandy job as a daily carry camera).

Not including Camera Phones, 4.

2 were AGFA 10mp things I got as spares repairs to showcase models and sales stuff, one in silver and another in bright pink, silver had a busted screen and meant to swap the one from the pink over but sticker wrapped the pink one in Car stickers insted.

Nikon Coolpix L810, loved this thing even if it was still technically a basic Camera, still miss it but got a note from its new owner who loves it as well.

Nikon D3400, Bought it with a bit of my redundancey in Black friday sales to try and teach myself modern SLR usage, it lives in its bag mostly as I still prefer using a RF

Number 5 I hope will be a Leica but that will be a way off and if I want digital that DSLR will do for now.
Those aren't left over screws, that's weight reduction.
