    My first film was in an old 620 Brownie that my parents used to photograph me when I was a baby. I don't remember the model, and it is long gone (wait...my sister may have it stashed in a closet, in her house in Barrie, Ontario; I must ask). I don't recall the brand of film for sure, but I think it may have been Kodak Verichrome Pan film, and it would have been about 1962.

    When I received my first real camera, at Christmas 1968, a Practika Nova (also long gone), my first film was Kodacolor-X, 20-exposures. My first B&W film was Tri-X pan, also 20-exposures.

    IIRC it was BW400CN, about 5 years ago. I'd been shooting colour since the late 80's though. First real B&W(and second B&W roll) was HP5+, with Tri-X following a couple rolls later.

    Verichrome Pan in a Brownie

    My first camera, can't remember what format. 127? Something else long gone?

    Then my dad developed and printed it in his darkroom, he was a pro.

    1964 Ansco All Weather Pan in 127. It came in a kit with a bottle of Hyfinol L developer and short stop and fixer and a contact printer for 127 sized negatives.

    I had to go dig. I knew it was either Super XX, Verichrome Pan, or Tri-x.

    Looks like Verichrome wins! (guessing about 1965)

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.
