    Kodak 35, Kodachrome, and a late 1930s Weston meter; this was ca. 1974 and I still have many excellent quality slides from that camera.Wish I still had the camera, but the store I bought it at is still alive and well!

    Personally owned -- like several others upthread, an Argus C3 purchased new at the end of 1957 -- the Brick! After about 35 years in the back of the closet, it has been out at least once every year since 2006 to shoot a roll for Argus Day. I subjected it to a DIY CLA and rangefinder calibration in the succeeding couple of years. It is certainly no longer my first choice for most work, but some of what it's done in recent years has come out significantly better than I expected.

    Prior to that I did some stuff with a folding Kodak of late 1930s vintage that my parents owned. I have no idea (60 years later) exactly what it was, but it had some control. Alas, my first personally owned camera was a Brownie Target Six-20 -- not much control there!

    Checked out a Pentax K1000 from my high school in autumn, 1974. It was a revelation.
    “You seek escape from pain. We seek the achievement of happiness. You exist for the sake of avoiding punishment. We exist for the sake of earning rewards. Threats will not make us function; fear is not our incentive. It is not death that we wish to avoid, but life that we wish to live.” - John Galt

    spotmatic think I paid 15 or 20 dollars for it in a pawnshop. It was still working fine when it was stolen some 12 years after i got it.

    Actually my very first real camera (not counting cellphones and similar contraptions of the devil) allowed full control. It was my mother's old Exa 1b with Domiplan lens. Sure, it only has 1/175 as fastest shutter speed and the lens is of a primitive triplet type, but it works well enough and the controls are all manual. I stll use it occasionally for old time's sake, though I've got a lot of better cameras and glass now.

    A Praktica L, which I still have.
    Using film since before it was hip.
