    Yashica D purchased used in 1976 for $32. Surprisingly capable and rugged.

    If you're going to put it that way then my first camera was a disposable camera (or maybe I was the disposable camera[?]).

    My very first MF camera was a Hasselblad 501CM with 80mm CFE lens and a A12 back. Sorry, not to be romantic, by mentioning a 50 year old folder or something of that sort.
    It actually was a christmas gift and it came inside a sports shoe box. My father used my dislike of sport shoes to turn an initial dissapointment to the biggest surprise in my life!

    My first was an Iskra, just over a year ago, followed by by more 6x6 and 6x9 folders, a 2x3 press camera, a TLR, then a 9x12 and now a 4x5".

    The Iskra (I have both a I and a II) are perfect travel cameras.

    It was a Yashica, but I can't remember which of the two came first - the 44 or the 124G. Sold the 44 so I would not have 3 formats to work in.

    WOW!

    Yashica D. Purchased in 2004: $45.00, plus shipping...

    I may just like it better than the 124G I bought, almost at the same time...

    First MF are also first cameras for me. I inherited a Fuji GX680 II and a Mamiya 6 from a dear friend about a year and a half ago. About a month ago I stole a Rolleiflex 2.8F 12/24 from a pawn shop (<$250) and sold it last week. I should have a Hassy in the next few weeks.

    YASHICAMAT!

    This was my very first camera of any kind! My whole kit was that with a lunasix 3, manfrotto tripod and panatomic-x, baby! That was 1981 or 82 I think. I was probably about 16 or 17 years old. My folks gave it to me for xmas. must have been already about 20 years old. Made some wonderful images with it though.

    Here's a link to someone who used the same camera to make some really beautiful images IMHO.
