    my first 35mm was a k1000, i think i was 13 or 14 ... i have had it worked on once since it was new - last year ... and it was because 15 years earlier it dropped to the pavement when i was chasing a bus. it had duct tape on it for 15 years, and finally i took it in for cosmetic surgery

    great camera!

    I remember using my roommate's girlfriend's Canon rangefinder. It was a wonderful camera. I had only used 126 cartridge cameras before that. The first SLR was my wife's friend Dave's Pentax ME Super. I went to JC Penney's and bought my first, Minolta X-570 shortly after that.

    "... What was your very first 35mm? How old were you...?"
    I was 19 when I got a Petri half-frame 35mm. As soon as I got my first roll of film back I saw the implications of the tiny half-frame negatives; within the week I got a Minolta SRT-101.

    Mine was some cheap enormous P&S camera by Kyocera. I was 18. I was not into photography back then, but I still remember I got real nice shots wth it in Savannah, Georgia in that summer.

    My first was a Yashica J. I bought it used when I was 18. I traded it soon to get a Yashica TL Super. I was told and convinced that rangefinders were dead. I was wrong, and it took me decades to fully appreciate how much so.

    Today my first choice is a rangefinder again. Full circle after 40 years.
