    First real camera that allowed you to take pictures with control

    What was the first real camera you had that allowed you to take serious pictures with control. For me I think it was an Agfa Super Silette. I went to a camera shop with my dad who was going to buy me a camera. I was quite young and in the course of conversation with the salesman I remember mentioning a Leica, but I guess my dad couldn’t afford that at the time and I got the Agfa. However, I wasn’t disappointed as I made many shots at different speeds and apertures.

    Mine was a Nikon FE bought used in the early 70's. I still have it and occasionly take it out for a workout.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    the praktica mtl 3, it took me while to figure out that I could actually control all those things I needed to.
    I still have the first negs I ever shot and looking at them I'm surprised how many have images, never mind ones that are "passable" exposure wise.

    Canon AE-1 Program with a 50mm f/1.4 lens. I bought the camera and lens new shortly after it was introduced. I bought a flash and the 28mm lens about a year later. It was my second camera, but the first that allowed me full control.

    Canon 1000D, my first "real" camera. Was using mobile phone cameras before that.

    My dad always carried around a Nikkormat FT-2. He taught me to "keep the needle between the + and the -", and that was my earliest experience of using an SLR.

    Twenty years later my dad has since passed, and passed the FT-2 to me. And I carry it just like he always used to.

    Minolta SLR SRT101b with 50mm f/1.4. belonged to my sister but I ended up adopting it and it was my introduction to Film.
