Re: So how Polycamerous are you?

I have far too many cameras and it leads to confusion deciding what to use on a particular day. I'm not brand loyal, why should I be? I'm not a share holder in any camera company.

(Sincerely hope my wife, and / or psychiatrist is/are not reading this!)

One benefit of brand loyalty (and even sticking to a single model) is so that you always have the same usability paradigm; the same button function is always in the same place. And of course interchangeability of lenses etc.

Do you use it?
Analogue cameras need their exercise, even if only to cycle the shutter through the range, firing blanks.
I do, yes, though admittedly not that often!

Edit: Missed the page break earlier due to hangover, sorry! Added quote by Ricoh so this makes a bit more sense now

Mono camera man. EM1X, Pen F and the criminally underated Tough TG5.

I'd really love a mono-camera but the M246 is way too expensive.

Not in my experience - one of my pet grumbles is that manufacturers like to move things around with each new model - presumably because they can


It's even worse with software. Adobe seem to re-arrange the tools selection menu with every new version of PSE.

EM-1 mkii, PEN-F converted for infrared, and Lumix TZ100 'travel' camera for pocket-sized backup.

More to the point, I have far too many lenses, and never use half of them!

Providing I can locate the "Auto" selection on an Oly Camera, I'm a Happy Snapper

True that. Any offers for some APX25 and Rollei Retro 100, 35mm? All well out of date but still frozen! Fits any Oly 35mm camera .

Remember when Windows 95 came out, and the close window and restore buttons had swapped places vs earlier Windows versions? Drove me mental that did! Like swapping the accelerator and brake pedals .

Clearly you have never used Mamiya medium format cameras!

My RZ67 and 645 Pro TL are very different.

I haven't. But I'm willing to bet that on average there's more consistency within brands than between brands.

OM-D E M5 the original, and still going strong. OM-D E M1, Trip 35, Lumix LX15 (nice little camera but rarely used), iPhone XS (very pleased with this).
