    Kodachrome in a Kodak Instamatic. Probably some Agfa or Kodak color negative film.

    In 1988 I was a couple of years into starting a new law practice - no time for photography!

    1) my cameras were almost unused, but they were an OM2s and a Mamiya C330;
    2) 35mm Kodacolour in its most basic version, for the few lab processed shots I took. May have been a couple of rolls of Kodachrome 64 in there as well;
    3) Whatever the current Kodak colour paper was - I made sure that the labs I used were Kodak labs. ABC Photo most likely;
    4) My Beseler 67C enlarger was in storage at my parents' home - it was calling across the water to me though.

    Oh well, in 1988 I was an 11 years old boy living in a rather small town in communist Romania. It was about that time that my father bought me my first camera - a Fed 5 sporting a 50mm industar 61, that I still own. I was using mostly ORWO and Romanian Azomures films. I have no idea how they compared against their western counterparts, but they did the trick for the kid I was. My father also taught me how to process films and print. I still remember the red azomures paper envelopes and the stripped orwo cartboard boxes my father stored in a drawer in his reading room. As regards the enlarger, it was a fairly basic Meopta model from the 70's that my mother accidentally broke a year or two later, so nothing is left of it, except for the lens.

    Camera(s): Rolleiflex 2.8C (still own and use) Canon F1 + selection of lenses, still own and use but not much these days, Wista 4x5 field camera. Bought a Zone VI camera in 1990, but I still have the lenses I bought in 1980.
    Main film then was Tri-X, HC-110, and various chrome and color neg films. (I was in photo school at the time, and T-Max had just come on the market. New films seemed to show up all the time, and I was trying them all.)

    Paper then: Original Zone VI Brilliant, now long gone. Now I use that dry stuff that goes in the big plastic printer-thingys that hook up to my computer. Film and paper now are almost all Ilford for my limited wet-work.

    Enlarger: Beseler then, Beseler now, although I did replace my original with a much newer, less abused model.

    Back in the 80's (1982?) I bought my first camera 2nd hand from a friend: a Yashica FX3. It developed film transport problems in 1985, so I couldn't use it anymore (but still have this camera). I mostly used Fuji color film - sometimes a B&W film - and had it developed in a local lab. Later (1988?) I was given my first Nikon by my aunt, who bought a new Canon herself. It was a black Nikon EL2 with a 35, 50 and 105 mm lens. This was my only camera until 2001, when I bought a Nikon D1X, a F4s and a F5. 2001 was the year I took up photography seriously. I still use the EL2 and had it CLA'd a few years ago.

    I was just getting ready to start college that year. I had a point and shoot 35mm camera and was using York brand film. My X-15F instamatic was getting less use those days because film was starting to be harder to find along with the flip flash thingies.
