Imagine if every time you bought a new camera, you broke a world record. That’s what happens to Dilish Parekh, owner of the largest collection of stills cameras in the world. He currently owns around 4500 cameras, icnluding Leica, Canon, Nikon, Zeiss, Kodak, Linhof, Rolleiflex and much more.
In this three and a half minute video, we’re introduced to Dilish and his vast collection of cameras. He started collecting cameras around 1970 when his grandfather would give him them as gifts. Featuring cameras made between 1890-1960, he entered the Guinness Book of World Records in 2003 with a mere 2634 cameras. His collection has since grown to almost double.
