    I would have liked to have seen his collection before he downsized. But what he has now is a very tasteful display. Those Sabre 620s look good in all the colors. Those look great on a shelf and have a broad appeal. I don't make a living as a camera dealer, so I think my collection would be the opposite of his. I would sell the plastic midcentury stuff and buy cameras which I found both useful and collectible.

    why does it matter if he is or isn't ?

    "stuff" he was married and had a collection .. people do funny-stuff.

    but does he have the instruction manual and stylus ?

    I loved it. Loved the 1950's style cameras and colors, loved the 1950's clock, loved the cat.

    Why wouldn’t he be married? Even if I didn’t t share my SO’s passion, I would totally respect his right to pursue it (at least, without putting us into financial ruin). That said, the fact that I have the second bedroom converted into a darkroom, numerous prints on the walls, and a growing camera collection in my living room, and am seriously contemplating getting a bigger place just so I can have a studio and/or a better darkroom to do alt processes, I shouldn’t really talk. Ahhh...maybe that’s why I’m still single.... :wink:

    When my children were young I read many books on child psychology and apparently, the collector's instinct can be caused by too early potty training in childhood.:smile:

    I’m just curious why he keeps blowing on all the cameras he picks up.? And should I be doing this before I shoot.?

    I agree a spouse of significant other should be tolerant of ones simple pleasures, if not then move on because there will be other much bigger issues.

    I think a better thread title might be "How does this guy stay married"? :whistling:
    His efforts in support of his collection do seem to be rather all (time-)consuming.
