    I"ll go first.
    As far as I remember, it was a Red Konica Pop.

    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:

    The first camera I ever used was my family's Kodak 126 Instamatic, but the first camera I ever owned was a Polaroid Super Shooter I purchased in 1975.

    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.
