    Agfa folder of some sort. I bought it in a junk shop for the sensible reason that the shop owner's daughter was (still is!) drop dead gorgeous - I needed a reason to be in there (too shy to tell the lass the real reason) so I bought the first thing I saw. That was 1969 - I had no idea what all the levers did, and it was missing the folding viewfinder but I managed to produce some half-decent pictures with it. Replaced it with a Zenit E in 1973.

    Nikomat FTN in 1973. I still have it. I was amazed at the quality of the images.

    My Voigtlander B is my second favourite camera that I now own - after my Voigtlander Vitomatic II

    Yashica Electro 35 GSN, with a 50mm, 1.7 lens, in around 1975. Took some great pictures, then moved up to an SLR, Nikon FM and then an FE to go along with it. One for Tri-X and one for Kodachrome.
    Sigh.

    Canon Eos Rebel with the awful stock lens kit on it. Produced good enough images to get me stuck in the analogue world despite, at the time, the appearance of the first competent digital systems.

    Snap, My Vitomatic IIa is my favorite 35mm camera, very closely followed by my Vito b, and my to Vito folders are very very close equal third,
