One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Well, the obvious question is:

What camera did you use to take the picture?  Smiley

Well I'm not sure how nice the house is, but I like the closet

Couldn't get the names from the SLR's are they all the same brand?

I have a similar collection, minus the Polariod's add a couple more DLR's and some Box and folding cameras

My SLR collection consist of various models of Minolta's ranging from SRT100 thru Maxxum 6

The one with the motor looks Nikon FMish, thesre a Canon, probably AE1, a nice black body Praktica, maybe a Seagull chinese TLR?  Fun old toys.

The last film SLR I have is a Minolta SRT 100. It was made the same year I was (1963), and I used a variety of the SRT models at the beginning of my career. Great camera. I'll always have it sitting around.

Most of my camera collection was sold to pay for other things, like food, back in the early '90s. THe one I always miss is the Voigtlander Bessa II. Awesome folding 6x9 camera. Super res images in your pocket.

LOL, nice camera nook. I have so many different SLR's that I cannot locate them all at the moment. I know I have a Pentax Spotmatic 2 around here somewhere.

I will have to get the camera's together for a group shot, but only when the wife is out of the house. I don't think she has sussed out how many of them there are hanging around here.

I will have to try a TLR some time, never have shot with one, but I like WLF's on cameras so I can see one showing up some day for a while.

I see 2 Polaroid SX-70's one in white. Definatly a AE-1 Program, maybe a Canon Ftb... Nikon I'd go with Allan on the FM and it's got a MD 12 attached, still the coolest sounding motordrive IMHO Smiley I think there's a Voigtlander Vito in the top corner, and I think there might be a Voigtlander brown leather case lower left and also by the looks a Sekonic selenium cell meter....Oh and on the TLR's, one I'm thinking is a Rolliecord...

Last week I pulled out my Rollieflex and shot a roll on it, it's been way too long since I last used it... I'd almost forgotten how much nicer it is to shoot only 12 shots...
