My first camera was a Zenith E when I was 14 or 15. Once I had this I needed a part-time job (ffordes photographic)to fund the addiction. This only made matters worse as I was exposed to 'real' cameras and spent several months wages on a Nikon FM kit. Since then I've always been a Nikon man except for my 5x4 Cambo and a recently purchased Olympus Trip 35 for my 10 year old daughter
