Hmmmm, I was given a Ricoh 35mm 1/2 frame camera that gave me a lot of itty-bitty negatives...but my first (and only) 35mm camera is the Canon AE1 (first year, metal body) that I bought. Just had it CLA'd and it works great! Those older metal bodied Canons were wonderful. Still wish I had a Canon F1-N though...
