I have a Pentax K-1000 (my main camera), a Graflex press camera (the kind they used back in the '30's, '40's and '50's) , a Kodak Brownie Reflex 20 TLR, a Kodak Pony 135 Model B, a Kodak Instamatic X45, and a Minolta Freedom Dual point and shoot 35mm camera. The only one I actually use is the Pentax. I haven't used the Minolta in years (I think there's still film in it from a trip in 2001; never did take any pictures). I got the Instamatic as a Christmas gift many years ago (late '60's?) and I inherited the Brownie Reflex and the Pony 135 and I was given the Graflex by my cousin's (now ex-) husband when he was getting rid of some unneeded photo gear.
I have both a film and digital camera. I end up using each of them roughly half the time, depending on what I'm looking to shoot.

Film: Canon K2
Digital: Canon S3 IS
Polaroid 360 Land Camera. Oh and my cell phone which is a Casio Z'One Boulder.
Leica M3 (my baby)
Nikkormat FTn
Pentax ESII
Pansonic FX10 (digital)
Mamaiya NC1000s
Rollei B35


"Be Seeing You"
Way too many, is the simple answer.
But to list my favourites,

Nikormat Ftn - was my fathers camera, given to him by my grandfather, who bought himselft a Nikon F2 whilst travelling and my father the Ftn. When my grandfather passed away, my father handed me down the Nikormat and has the F2 now.

Bessa R2A rangefinder - lovely piece of kit when combined with a 50mm & a 35.

Zero 2000 pinhole - great wooden box. Yes I could have made a pinhole myself, but this camera reminds me of seeing my first pinhole images and getting excited by photography.

And then the digitals - Ricoh GRD and Panasonic LX3 - both lovely point and shoots.
Since my retirement I have picked up again on Photography.

I have a Cannon EOS 50D, which I use regularly. I like creating my own photo settings for our cigar club, my hats and scenery.
We have been needing to upgrade for sometime ... my first an Olympus D-340R 1.3 megapixel and Susan had an Polaroid 5.0 megapixel she found on a "Black Friday" some years back. Susan surprised me today (early b-day gift) with a Pansonic DMC-TZ1, I'm super geeked and can't wait for the battery to finish charging, I will post some pictures tomorrow ...

Of all the digital P&S cameras I like Panasonic's the best since the use the wonderful Leica lenses. I have yet to purchase one myself, but if I do get a digital camera it will be a Panasonic.
Panasonic's are great! With Leica using Panasonic electronics, you basically have a Leica for half the price (or less!)
Small format:
Leica M4-2 (use daily)
2x Canon F1N (use regularly)
Kodak Retina IIIc
Olympus XA
Rollei 35 (use regularly)
Yashica Lynx 14
Yashica Lynx 5000 (use some)
Argus C3
Nikon D200 (use regularly)
Nikon D100
Canon G5 (use some)

Medium Format:
Yashica 124G
Rollieflex E3 2.8 (use regularly)
Horseman VHR (use regularly)

Large Format:
Wisner 4x5 Traditional (use regularly)
Wista 8x10 (use some)

Misc:
Polaroid SX-70
Minox C
Holga/Diana
Update - Have added a Horseman LS45 to the large format arsenal. That should get regular use.

Have sold the Rolleiflex. I'll have to get another at some point (when money is less needed elsewhere).
I have a Nikon D70S that my wife and I have used to capture Gigs unpon Gigs worth of portrait and family photos. I also use a Nikon CoolPix for quick carry photo ops. I hope to get a D300S for myself soon as the wife hogs the D70s.
