Pictures of Cameras

I’ve been going through my recent photographs and organizing them into categories. I noticed that I have captured several photographs of cameras. This isn’t unusual because I will capture images of my photographic gear to include with articles on this blog. These photographs, however, fell through the cracks and never made it onto Fuji X Weekly. That is, until today.

I’m a gear junkie as much as the next guy. If I had the money I’d buy all sorts of different cameras. The fact is, though, that I have too many. Right now I own three digital cameras and, I don’t know, maybe eight or nine old film cameras. Most of them never get used. You can only use one camera at a time, and bringing along two with you is often too much. One camera is all that you really need, but sometimes having two is nice. More than two is unnecessary, but it can be fun to collect, as long as one understands that the extra gear is mostly going to collect dust.

A number of different cameras were used to capture these images, including a Fujifilm X100F, X-Pro2, X-E1 and X-A3. Most of them are straight-out-of-camera JPEGs, while a couple received some post-processing. Enjoy!

    Beautiful collection! 👍 I have 3 cameras at the moment and already feel guilty for having more than I need, I can’t even imagine if I had that many! 😁

      Thank you! Yeah, it’s definitely too many. None of the film cameras were expensive (most $50 or less, a few of them were free). The digital cameras were the most expensive….

        Yeah, at least most film cameras are cheap, that helps with the guilt sentiment a bit! 🙂
