    So- I know a lot of you have lots of cameras- how many have film ready to go?
    I have 8 bodies I use often and have 4 loaded right now... should probably finish them off- some have been in the camera for nearly a year

    I have close to 40 cameras, but I take the batteries out and don't put film in one until I know I'm going to be using it. That said, within the last week I've put a roll through an F4s, an F2, and now I have film in an SX-70.

    My pair of 35mm Stereo Realists are empty right now but I have 2 8x10 holders filled with exposed Tri-x, 3 with unexposed Tri-x and 5 4x5 holders filled with unexposed Portra.

    Thanks, you just reminded me that I need to order more film!

    I don't shoot 35mm, but I still want to play. ;-)

    I currently have 2 5x7 holders loaded. I exposed and developed the film from the third holder two days ago. I have three 8x10 holders loaded with paper for paper negatives. And I emptied the three 5x4 plate holders last nite. They were loaded with paper, and now will be replaced with dry plates. When the 124G arrives, and if it works, it will be loaded.

    Four.
    Zenit E with two frames left - a project on Lincoln I have not quite finished.
    Olympus OM10 with also two frames left - another project not quite finished.
    Pentax SV with 20 frames left - my current 'walk about' camera.
    Pentax Spotmatic with ten frames left - a 'new' camera and the film is merely a test film to assess the camera.

    Right now I only have two loaded with film. I always have film in my View-Master stereo camera, it takes about a year for me to shoot the 70+ pairs on a roll of film. RIght now I have Fujifilm Velvia 100 loaded in it. I also have a Nizo Heliomatic 8 Focavorio Regular 8mm movie camera loaded with Kodak Ektachrome 100D.

    Quite a few, but less than 50, I think. Sometimes I lose track whether there is film loaded or not. On medium format cameras you often can't tell because there is no rewind crank or film canister view window.

    5-6. At least. One or two of my Nikons, probably one of my Contax SLRs too. Just finished a roll that was in my Certo on a walk around downtown Oakland during lunch and loaded up a fresh roll of Tmax 400 as I returned to the office. My Contax G2 has a roll in it. As does at least one of my Leicas. At least 1-2 of my Rolleiflexes has a roll loaded. Oh, and I almost forgot, I keep an Olympus XA in my laptop bag always loaded, and one in my car too. Geez, how many is that....?

    Oh God I need help...

    I also try not to have to leave film in cameras. I keep one 35mm loaded on the counter dedicated for those short notice trips outside and crazy antics my daughter is infamous for.
