    2 Olympus DSLR, 1 Canon SLR, 1 Nikon SLR, 1 Olympus XA2.

    All not mine except 1 Olympus DSLR and XA2.

    But I occasionally "steal" another Olympus DSLR for telephoto.

    More convenient if 1 DSLR for wide angle, 1 DSLR for telephoto.

    The XA2 I carry around with me, with slide film for x-pro.

    ...yup me too, I'm not a professional photographer, it's a hobby but somehow I manage to own several cameras at a time. I listed all the cameras I used to own up to now and I was shocked. From when I started this hobby about in 1984 till now I've own no less than 21 cameras mostly 35mm, a couple of rangefinders and some medium format equipments. I totalled up the money spent on equipment and it's a small fortune. Presently owning a dslr and still itching for a Lumix LX3.

    Once I started taking stock then I realise how much have been spent on photography, and how many bodies are like bodies in a mortuary (dry box)! That made me rethink about my hobby.
    from guitars, cars to dslr...

    Haha but these bodies can be revived from the dead.

    For hobbyist it can be pretty tough to justify, since the only reward is the art you created.

    Of course your boy will thank you for the DVD full of memories that you captured for him and family when he gets abit older. And when he needs them for his wedding montage :P

    That's good for you! Sometimes knowing a dSLR would be a better option but the bulk of it just puts me off, especially during simple outing for snapshot of kids and stuffs.


    Wah bro, you good! But that's the magic of consumerism I guess!
