    My first (around 1970) was an Asahi Pentax H3. A few years later, I traded it for a Spotmatic, which I used through college, and into the 80's. I sold it to a friend, when I switched to Olympus. I went to visit her about a month ago, and she said, "got something for you." She gave me back the Spotmatic. It could use new seals, and the shutter needs exercising, but it felt great to hold it again. 30+ years later, it's come home...

    Canon AV1.

    Back in 1982 I was going on a trip to Knoxville Tennessee to see the Worlds Fair and then down to Florida to go swimming in the ocean. I was working part time at a Venture store while going to community college. My boss marked down the display Canon with flash to $80.00 so I bought that for my trip.

    With the AV1 being aperture preferred only, I ended up selling it to help fund a Contax 139. It was the Canon AV1 though that really started my interest in photography.

    Hanimex Practika Super TL,a gift from a long departed uncle. Still have it although it's in need of a good CLR and finding someone willing to touch it seems impossible.

    Well I immediately started with medium format - a Brownie Hawkeye box camera shooting 620 film.

    But first 35mm was a Miranda. A "D" I believe.

    Voigtlander Vitessa T. My father gave it to me in 1976; he bought it new in Germany in 1954 when he (we) were stationed there. He said I could use it to trade in on a 35mm SLR. Bought a Fujica ST605 but kept the Vitessa for years but never used it. Finally sold it. Really wish I had kept it now.

    seller's remorse is a big issue with me too
