Now, allow me to ask... When did you get your cam? And, how many shots have you taken since the purchase? (if more than one, please mention all)

The list:

Canon Powershot Pro90IS (Digital) 2001
Canon EOS ELAN II (2000)
Pentax ZX-M (2003)
Pentax ME Super (1985)
Pentax K1000 (1981)
Olympus OM-1 (2001 Used)
Olympus Stylus Zoom 140 (2003)

I couldn't even give you a guess on how many pictures I've shot with some of the cameras. I've shots thousands of pics with my Canon digital and 35mm SLR. While I like digital, I've had a lot of trouble getting the exposure correct for some reason. Here are some pages with pics I've shot with the digital. Of coarse the sunset picture I shot with my ME-super. That is still the best camera I ever used.

I just bought ZX-M for my wife, since she wanted a manual camera like the ME super. My ME super is showing its age and it's starting to act up. It's was cheaper to get the ZX-M that could use the lenses from the other Pentax cameras that to get the ME repaired.

The Olympus OM-1 I have is used with my telescope, for astrophotography, I bought it for about $50 used and the metering doesn't work on it, but I don't need that. Here is an old web page with my telescope and a few pics.

Olympus Stylus Zoom 140 is the "party" camera. My wife and daughter use it for time when you just want some simple pictures. Birthday parties, office get togethers, etc. It is for times when you want something small you can put in your pocket or purse.
