    My first camera was a Canon FTBn the first year they came out in 1973. Saved up all my summer money and got the camera and my first darkroom. Took me a few weeks because I put it on lay away but it was worth the wait. Still have a special place in my heart for that camera.

    Nikkormat FTN with a Komura 75-135mm lens. That was thirty years ago. Printed some of the negative recently and they are as good, and maybe better, as any think I have shot since. Gave the camera and lens to the son of some friends and he uses it still.

    First

    First was a Yashica 124TLR. Then a Pentax Spotmatic. Afterward I went for a Kodak 33/5x7 camera. Have never looked back.

    Mine was a old Bell and Howell 35mm camera with a funky built in rangerfinder helper. Aimed the line in the viewfinder at the bottom of the picture and transfer the reading to focus ring. Worked amazingly well.

    My first camera was given to me when I was maybe 4 years old. This was in the early 90's.
    A Vivitar PS33 Focus Free.
    I was rarely allowed any film.

    I'm not sure. I was ten years old in the late 1960s. It was plastic and it produced large negatives. I was in the Photography Club in grade school, where we went on field trips, took pictures, then processed them in our school's darkroom. I was so excited by the process that the next year I joined the band and forgot all about photography for almost 20 years.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    What was your first camera?

    I lost my first camera, which I received as a gift in the 2nd grade, but recently found a replacement at a thrift store.
