    1968 - a Nikon F with a Photomic FTN head. Split image viewfinder.

    Damn, it was a beauty and took absolutely wonderful pics. Had a 50mm Nikkor lens (1.4).

    Got my first camera when I was 12 which was a Zenith-EM with a 50mm lens. No frills on this one but it did the job. Simple is efficient

    I shared a Minolta SRT 101 with a few friends around 74. Then I bought a Canon FTB New in 75.

    I got a Konica plastic camera when I was a kid and didn't really get anything better until I loaned my father's Spotmatic...but that was only after having entered the world of photography with a digicam

    I couldn't hope to afford an 'F' in '68 but I finally fulfilled my dream of owning one in '02 in beautiful shape and with a working Photomic finder.
    I keep it loaded wth Tri X (Naturally) and like to grab it as I walk out the door. It is always fun to point it out to friends in movies featuring war correspondents, photo journalists and fashion photographers.

    My first 35mm was a used Exacta VX1000 made in "Soviet Occupied Germany"
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Yashica TL Electro X, it took me forever to save enough money to buy that camera. You know young family and all the demands that come with that sort of thing. Wish I still had it, it was a real pleasure to use other then the screw mount lens. Today I seldom use a 35MM other then and emergency camera when, I haven't got a medium format or large with me.

    I still have an F w/FTN and f36 motor drive. It's hard to believe they got much better than that . Although a hinged back might be nice.

    first 35 mm camera

    my first 35mm was a Finnetta 88 bought in 1952 during my National Service, i used it to record all my NS activities ( not including the naughty bits) I have had many others since then.

    Did nobody have a Praktica MTL? I did, or rather I borrowed my Dad's. He didn't mind as he liked to use his Canonet, or XA2.

    I thought it was so sleek and well built compared to the Zenith.

    Zeiss Ikon Contessamat SE, that my dad allowed me to use after I got bored of my Instamatic.
    soon afterwards I was allowed to use his Spotmatic (whhich I still have)
    Mama took my APX away.....
