Box brownie
Leica lookalike 35mm rangefinder 
Pentaflex SLR
Nikon FE
Canon Eos-3
Canon 30D
Canon 5DII

My next? Hopefully Canons 1Ds replacement if its as good as they have promised. They have a little catching up to do since the Nikon 800E, but I remain positive.

My father's 120 format folding camera, Yashica SLR, Pentax SLR, Canon FTb, Canon AE-1 programmable, Canon Digital Rebel, Canon Rebel T3i, Canon EOS 7D.  I"ve left a few out, these are the ones that I best remember.  I'm pretty sure there was an APS film camera in there somewhere, a couple of rangefinder 35s, and several point and shoot cameras.

Whoa this thread brings back some memories...it's interesting reading how long people have had the passion for shooting...

My family has always taken a decent amount of pics - My grandfather worked for Eastman-Kodak in the 50's/early 60's, and when I was a kid there were always videos and photos being taken at home and on vacations. I always had a little 110 film cam or a Polaroid or something as a kid. I ran through most of high school (96 grad) with a fixed focus Yashica 35mm f2.8 pocket cam. I didn't start to get serious until college, and I'm completely self taught. I read books, played with the cameras, and learned to develop my natural eye for composition and perspective. Aside from various cheap Polaroid instant cams from flea markets, etc, the major cameras that I've used are...

1997-98: Picked up my dad's Canon AE-2 and started to learn
1999: Given a Canon Rebel 2000 w/ Tamron 28-80 kit for Xmas (by said grandfather).
2000: Tamron 100-300 added to the kit
2001: Canon Elan 7E added to the kit
2002: Canon Powershot A60 is my first digital!
2003: sold the A60 to fund a Canon S50 (and that sucker was awesome at the time)
2005: Sold the S50 and the 7E to fund a Canon Rebel XT (body only) and the EF-S 17-85mm lens. later bought a Casio EX-Z750 for a pocket cam.
2010: Sold the Rebel XT to buy a Canon Rebel T2i and BG-E8 grip. Later sold 17-85 for an EF-S 15-85 upgrade, and EF 50mm 1.4
2012: Picked up a Canon S100 on Black Friday cheap for a pocket cam. Sold EF-S 15-85 to fund Tamron 24-70 f2.8. EOS 6D ordered, T2i up for sale. Looking for a BG-E13 deal.

I'm still buying some old film cams when I can find them cheap... Looking towards 2013, I want a vintage Russian twin lens Rollei-knockoff to play with, will probably spring (in the spring, no less) for a Lensbaby Composer, and maybe save up for a Canon or Tamron 70-200mm f2.8 IS. I kinda want one of the new Polaroids, or perhaps a Lytro.

Which 110 camera did you have? Mine is shown in my profile pic... Russian Lubital.
Good to find somebody else who went from MF to 35mm...

(Updated)

<mumble!> My mother's Leica Rangefinder
<mumble> Bought my first SLR - just-released Minolta AF 7000 (aka Maxxum), 24mm f2.8, 35-70mm f4, 70-210mm f4 "beercan."  After a few too many snap-happy weekends (20+ 36-exp films) it was mothballed, to save my aching hip-pocket nerve!  The 'keeper' rate on this camera was astonishing.

1999 (Sony DCR-TRV900E - video)

2003 Canon IXUS 400 - great little camera; still have it, still use it occasionally (keep it in the car)

2008 Canon 30d / 17-85 IS USM because I needed a half-decent camera now and the 5D2 was too late; compromise camera ought 2nd-hand with the intent of replacing it with a 5d2 - which quickly turned out to be a white elephant due to AF issues and the price.

2011/2 (Sony HDR CX130E - video) To simplify my workflow - mini-DV is a hassle, SD cards mount right up   With no '5d mark 3' available at the time - again - Canon left me high and dry.  Again.

2012
Canon 5d Mark III  (arrived last week)
70-300 f4-5.6L  (arrived Wednesday, my only non -S EF lens)
100 f2.8L Macro (arrived Friday, with...)
24-105 f4L   (the dealer shipped a 16-35L II instead!)

That's about all I can afford right now.  Arguably more. :)

I see what all the fuss has been about now - the big, bright viewfinder, the heft of the beast... and images that make you scratch your head when they hit LR4.  I'm used to seeing something obvious to fix from the 30d, but the images SOOC are way better.  Sharp as a tack, too.  Gotta watch that DoF now :)
