Confessions of a digital camera junkie...

My fourth digital camera just arrived in the mail today... a Pentax Optio WP. Dang, what have I become?

Just for curiousity, how many digital cameras do you own? I have:

Canon EOS-350D Digital Rebel XT
Fujifilm S5100
Fujifilm E550 (which my wife has hijacked, but that is OK:)
Pentax Optio WP (A water proof camera, since I do spear fishing)

So, how many digital cameras does your household own?
08/18/2005 03:51:53 PM · #2
Canon EOS-300D Rebel
Sony DSC-P92
HP PhotoSmart 315
Olympus D-450Z

Mine are upgrades from the last 10 years... I just never bothered to get rid of them...

I guess I might add that I also have a Pentax P3 and a Canon EOS-Elan II in film bodies...

I think the old adage is:

Hey, a couple of you sound like you've been to a DCA meeting........

I'm behind the rest of you, but I can see myself catching up in the future.

Right now I have a:
Fuji S3
Some Sony one that I don't even remember the name of. It was stuffed up on a shelf upon the arrival of my Fuji :
My 13 year old son just got his first digital, an Olympus C-765

Also, in about 6 months or so I'll probably get a Nikon D70S as well.
I'm guessing in a couple years or so I'll be ready to upgrade or "think" that I need to.
08/18/2005 04:07:34 PM · #10
Just one Canon 10D
08/18/2005 04:07:48 PM · #11
Fuji S7000
Olympus C750UZ
Fuji S602Z
Fuji 2800Z (Lense does not retract, still shoots)
Fuji 2800Z (Burnt out, repaired, burnt out again)

About it for now....how did that oly get in there?
08/18/2005 04:25:24 PM · #12
Right now i have a -
Canon EOS-350D rebel XT
Canon powershot G5

I had a Kodak DX3600 which i gave to my dad. But im eyeing a camera phone, prob the sony ericsson w800i if it ever gets released in the us.

I just bought a 20D!!! I'm really excited about it. I haven't even managed to learn much about my other camera (well, that's not true --- it's photography itself I need to improve a LOT on), but we just sold a summer cabin and I have been craving a 20D for a long time.

My previous camera <--- sounds odd to me, 'cause I'm just this minute loading the software for the Canon and charging its battery: Pentax *ist DS
I guess I will sell it because it's really too expensive for me to keep both of these DSLRs.
There's also a Canon S50 around here that gets very little to no use.

Okay, back I go to exploring the world of 20D!
08/18/2005 04:29:58 PM · #14
I have a
Canon EOS-300D Rebel
Pentax Optio 550
Panasonic FZ5

That doesn't count the 3 I tried out before I got the Panasonic (Coolpix 8800, Sony DSC-V3 - great camera, not enough zoom, and the Canon S2-IS).

Oh, I also had a Canon S1-IS that I got when my Optio was in the shop that I sold to a friend.

I'm so happy with the FZ5 that the Rebel may be on borrowed time :)

Hi, my name is Emily and I am addicted to images.

Just got the Rebel XT *happy dance*
Canon Pwershot S500 Digital Elph (love to stick it in my purse)
just gave away an Olympus (which had the same MP as my PDA does now)
2 other camera's reside in my purse also, my Sprint camera phone and my Palm Zire 72 which has a 1.3 MP camera in it and takes video too
oh yes, and my husband has a camera on his Treo 600

Reading this thread, I thought to myself, heck we're behind the curve... then I realized we have in the house:

- A Canon 10D (my main cam)
- A Canon SD400 (my daughter's cam)
- A Canon S410 (my wife's cam)
- A Nikon 995 (my old cam and the one my son uses occasionally)
- O forgot, the camera on my daughter's cell phone, LOL

We're doomed to soon have another DSLR in the house if the fabled 5D comes in at a quasi-reasonable street price and the reviews are good. The digital cams in the house will outnumber the outdated cell phones before long.
So I guess we're firmly in the camp of "digital camera junkies," LOL! Unfortunately, I also have "L disease." A really bad combination.

Anyone else? I am curious about how many cameras get used in your household. (not the old, retired cameras...)

08/19/2005 12:25:07 PM · #22
Kodak DX3900 (dead, but still in the drawer)
Olympus C-700 (9,000+ pix, and still kicking)
Olympus C-750 (14,000+ pix, card door pops open!!)
Olympus Digital Stylus 400 (Slowly dying? But hey, it's weatherproof!)
Sony DSC-W7 (wife's, but I like using it!)
Konica-Minolta Dimage A-200 (just got it this week)

My 3 kids and their husband/fiancee/girlfriend: 6 people, 5 cameras - Sony, Minolta, Nikon, 2 of which we gave as gifts, another I advised on purchase. Maybe I should pass the C-700 to the only non-owner?

you will not be disappointed. i just got a 20d after having gotten rid of my 350d, which i was quite unhappy with. the 20d is far superior and overall a delicious piece of image capturing refinery.
08/21/2005 11:27:49 PM · #24
Well we're down to 2... but we've had:
one of those oly 10x zoom cams
