I was wondering how many of you have multiple cameras and why you do. I have a few but really no purpose to it other than perhaps laziness of disposing other cameras.

Over time inertia, nostalgia, and a misplaced sense of utility can result in useless aggregation.  Setting that aside, I have three cameras: my DSLR, an old enthusiast point and shoot, and my cellphone.  The DSLR is for "serious" photographic missions, the point and shoot is for when a DSLR is simply the wrong tool for the purpose (active sports or discreet situations), and the cellphone is for most casual and conversational/transactional photographs...which is pretty much 90% of my photography these days.

The 2 cameras mothballed in my closet really should be let go, but they're not worth much, no one really wants a film body anymore, and they still work...
