    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    My first was a Kodak 127. I still have it and the photos I took with it when I was a child. I'm either a hoarder or it was very special to me.

    The first camera I owned, given to me in my youth, was a Kodak Instamatic of some sort. I showed enough of an interest that my father started letting me use his Zeiss Contessa.

    The first camera I bought, and one that I still have (and will probably never part with) was a Nikon FE2. It think they'd been on the market for two months when I bought mine. Great camera. I don't know how many thousands of rolls of film I've put through it, but it still operates like new. I don't shoot much 35mm any more, but just picking up the Nikon and handling it takes me back.

    Great thread!
    Film is cheap. Opportunities are priceless.

    My first camera was a Hasselblad 500 from the first Seventies.
    And I bought it in the late nineties...
    But after a couple of month I purchased a Linhof Kardan E that I am still using as my favorite camera (and I have only one objective, (a Linhof signed Schneider 150).

    My first was a kodak instamatic of some sort also. Then in 8th grade my dad bought me a Mamiya/Sekor 500TL and some lenses and accessories. I still have them all. The light meter died, so a couple years ago I bought another one on ebay in the hopes I could fix it. Same problem! Two years ago my boyfriend bought me a 500DTL for Christmas that's in great shape. So I can still pretend I am using my old camera, plus I have 3 50mm lenses to pick from.

    My first was a Baldnette folder. It used it for vacations and photos of my kids for years.

    Kinda wish I still had it around, must be old age.

    First Cameras.

    I had some sort of 126 camera I bought from the back of a Life cereal box. It didn't work very good though. My mom later got me a Kodak 110 with a built in flash. I have some old pictures from a vacation in Colorado taken with that camera that still look surprisingly good. Later while in Texas in the Air Force I bought a Canon T50. I have probably have taken over a 1000 pictures with that camera and it still works as good today. I now have a T70 to go with it so I can have some manual control to use with then lenses I bought for the T50.

    A Minolta XG-1, with a 50 mm. I bought it because me father owned a X-700 and I hoped to lend his primes. Later I did buy his X-700 for a very friendly price. I still have it. I cannot bring myself to sell it. It served me well....

    mine was...

    ... a Canon EOS 30.
