Some not very scientific statistics on which of my cameras I use the most.

Photo by stratski

First, I just looked at the number of pictures, but that’s a bit unfair, since a half frame camera like the Diana can fit 72 pics in a roll, whereas my beloved Holga only takes about 12 pics in a roll. So I looked at rolls in stead. If the numbers seem a bit odd, it’s because I compensated for the fact that I not always use a full roll (I snap them in half and use them in different camera’s if I’m experimenting on stuff I don’t want to waste a whole roll on for example), or I make dianaramas or diptychs. I added the (approximate) year I got the camera as well. So you see that I shot about 30 rolls of film with both the Holga and the Olympus XA, but where that took about 10 years with the XA, it only took 3 years with the Holga.

It’s all not very scientific, and the camera list is not complete, but it amuses me.
