First camera, First love

What is your first camera ?
Where is it now ?
Do you still use it ?

Your first camera is like your first love, isn’t it ?
So treat it like one.

    @sirio174 nice camera! my friend used to have a 126mm camera, and everytime he wanted to shoot, he cut the film in his bath room with the lights off to make the film into 120mm. haha

    Minolta XD-11 a perfect little zone tested miracle. It was stolen from me years ago but I recently found it. Battered and abused by years of neglect I will restore it! :)

    My first camera was a Nikon point and shoot but my first Lomography camera was the fisheye one. I have better cameras now but they'll always be my favorites. I just need to look at them and I remember all the crazy crazy antics of my youth haha!

    @kibs did you find the exact same camera that previously stolen from you or did you find the new camera with the same type? That's nice!

    @bebopbebop I found the exact same camera that was stolen!!! I was extremely lucky and after years of looking for it, was rewarded :) It's in pretty bad shape but I will get it all fixed up :)

    When I was young my parents gave a simple point and shoot camera. With flash and AF and fixed lens. It was very heavy and solid, it never broke. But i can't find it anymore :( Perhaps it's in the basement of my parents house. I hope I will find this cam anytime. And my second camera some years later was Diana F+ Black Jack :D

    Pentax K-1000 is the first camera I really remember, I think I had a 110 kodak when I was very young, but it was the pentax which I took with me though my art studies and still use and is my fave today :)

  28. bebopbebop

    Konica BigMini 210 :) I like how this camera differs from my Minolta XE. Even though it's a point-and-shoot, I still wanna use it along with my Minolta XE.

    I had a flimsy plastic fantastic toy camera when I was a kid! It was bright yellow and it came as a set with a book titled "My First Camera". Sadly, though it was the first camera I could call my own, it is probably moldering in a landfill somewhere. Revisiting film, my 'first' camera was a DIY Recesky TLR! I might not have gotten hooked on film photography if I wasn't so keen on making all sorts of things to begin with ;P
