Meet the World’s Largest Camera Collector

Believe it or not, I was a horrible art student, I could not draw or paint well at all and still cannot. Certainly, this would have contributed to my early interest in cameras and photography, which you can read about on my introductory page on this website.  The camera allows me to be another kind of artist, one who needs no paint brushes or pencils. Feel free to look at this video that I made of some antique camera equipment.

In this blog, I want to introduce you to Mr. Dilish Parekh of Mumbai, a Photo Journalist who holds the Guinness World Record for having the most cameras.  He actually has Four Thousand Four Hundred and Twenty-five (4,425) cameras, with much of them being antiques he inherited.

You can hear the World Record Holder tell his story in this video published by Indian Express Online, on their YouTube Channel. 

Feel free to let us know about any antique cameras, camera equipment or camera stories that you may have.
