When you get as far as a full plate film camera you can stop

Nah, don't need to go that far, a Lecia S or R is far enough.

I quit with a 9x12 Graflex, that was close enough. But my 6x9 KW Patent-Etui (1930) will take cut film... if I dared... which I don't. Rollfilm is sufficient.

Let's see, my current inventory: 30+ film cams (not counting 16mm spycams etc), 6+ digicams (not counting webcams etc), one dSLR, 155+ lenses. But I can honestly say that I didn't intend to get all those -- some just happened. Actually, I'd bid on eBay MISC LOTS of photo gear, buying a pile of cheap stuff in order to get one desired item, with the intention of re-selling the extras later. Ha. Most of those extras, nobody else wants either. Which is why I now own a half-dozen MF Brownie-types taking 620 film. Argh.

A photographer and their money are soon parted.

What makes this worse is being a starving college student and buying lenses, and making it even worse is being a college student studying photography, so i dont feel guilty buying all this stuff!

Ugh. I think this place is bad for my health... or at least my wallet. Haven't gotten to LBA yet because I have yet to allow myself to buy an interchangeable lens camera, but I think P&S CBA is definitely becoming a problem.
