I started using the family Kodak Brownie Hawkeye and later my older sister's Ansco Clipper. My uncle took me to a camera store and we picked out a Minolta Autocord, brand new, and he lent me the money, which I paid back from my paper route at $3 a week.
Kodak Brownie World's Fair Flash Camera. It took 127 film and had a little New York World Fair logo on it. 1965, I believe. My first real camera was a Minolta SRT 102, circa 1975.
My very first, a Kodak Browny FlasH IV, a present for my first communion. The fist I bought, a Yashica Mat 120, in 1970.
