    OM2n, bought 2nd hand in Manchester in 1986.

    I've been waiting to tell you all about it whilst it was being repaired... dug it out earlier this year and found it wouldn't meter
    But, just got it back from a service and it's just how I remember it - woohoo!

    My first 35mm camera was an Argus C-3 I picked up at a yard sale for a dollar when I was 13. No instructions no light meter, and the shutter speed and aperture settings were numbers 1-10. I learned a ton about exposure from that camera, along with uncounted rolls of Verichrome Pan. That camera was stolen a couple of years later, and was replaced with another C-3 that came with the light value meter. I think I paid around $5 for that one, and I only had it a few months when it was stolen. I replaced it with a then new Olympus FTL. This started a 40 year love affair with Olys and especially Zuiko optics. Alas all my Olys are in the closet-dead bodies(2 OM-10's, an OM-4, and an XA, and XA-2) My currant shooters are a Yashica D, and Contax 139 quartz, My wife is shooting an OM-77AF I picked on the 'bay last summer for $20 (shipping inc.) I think its a good camera for her to learn composition with, so she doesnt have to worry about exposure until she is more confident in her photos (she is quite an artist already-drawing, and paint, sculpting) Our daughter loves shooting the 77 , she's already a very skilled darkroom apprentice at 11 yrs. old.

    I had a Vivitar XV-1 35mm manual camera. After extensive use the film advance broke. I really learned my craft with that camera because it was all manual. After going Pro I started using Nikon's (which I love). I just purchased another Vivitar XV-1 and can't wait to get out and run it through it's paces. To bad most new photographers start out with auto-everything. They are really missing the joy of the craft.

    My first was an Olympus XA2 that was a gift from my grandmother when I was 7. After helping my parents sort through their old photo albums, I was impressed with it's quality.

    I still wish I had it laying around.

    My first was a Minolta HiMatic 9 purchased from Marshall Field &Co. at their store in downtown Chicago, December, 1969.

    It met an untimely end when someone in my family, whoever is was never owned up to it, spilled a Pepsi all over it, wiped up the external signs and the shutter stuck tight in the next couple of days after I got back home.

    Went from there to a Miranda D.

    A Chinon CX, c1975. Nice camera. It captured the 1970s as no modern camera ever will.
