    An Argus C3, the famous brick.

    Re: First real camera that allowed you to take pictures with control

    A Nikon D3100.

    Although now my primary shooters are my Speed Graphics and my F3/F4.

    My Dad's old Argus C at Expo '67.
    It was an early one without a coupled rangefinder.
    Shot a whole role of Kodachrome 25 and they all came out, more or less.

    Exakta VX iia when I was 19 years old. It was used and came with a 58mm f/2 Zeiss Auto Biotar and a 90mm f/3.5 preset Schneider Tele Xenar.

    Before that, when I was about five or six years old I got a simple box camera by sending in two cereal box tops and $1. My mother said the camera would never come, but it did come and I loved it.

    No it doesn't because the OP says the first camera which allowed to take picture "with control". My Kodak instamatic 36 had only 1 control: "sun" or "cloudy".
    I also had a Polaroid which had a strange knob on the front of dubious utility.
    Power is nothing without control.
