An Ensign Fullview https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=en...w=1680&bih=925 my family took on holiday in 1947, we actually had a Zeiss Contax that my dad brought home from Germany after the war that I still have, but nobody in the family knew how to use it in those days.
I used to think that it was a Kodak Brownie Starmatic, but I think now that it was a Kodak Brownie Starmite II:
“Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”
Ansel Adams, from the introduction to The Negative - The New Ansel Adams Photography Series / Book 2
I have no idea what the first camera I ever used was, but the first camera of my own that I ever used was the Kellogg's Corn Flakes Mini 110. I wanted a camera and a darkroom but my parents never cared about my interests, so when I could get a camera for just the cost of shipping, I did.
