According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Indian photojournalist Dilish Parekh has broken his own world record for the largest private collection of cameras. After previously setting the record with 2,634 cameras, Parekh increased his collection by nearly 70% and now owns 4,425 cameras, many of which are antiques. "Cameras are my life. I can't live without them," said the photojournalist, who has been amassing his horde for 25 years through flea markets, old studios, classified ads, and other collectors. Included in the range is the 1934-made Leica 250, of which only 1,000 were made, and the tiny Tessina L which is considered to be one of the world's smallest and lightest cameras using 35mm at only five-and-half ounces.
