My first was a Kodak Brownie Bullet, a very simple 127 roll film camera. About 1960 I think, I was in 6th grade. Don't know what ever happened to it but in December 1969 I bought a Minolta Hi-matic 9, that lasted till the next summer when someone, I never found out who, spilled Pepsi on it and the repair would have been more than the camera. A little later I picked up a Miranda D used, with a 50mm f1.9 Soligor lens. I really liked the Miranda and wish I still had it. By 1974 I was into Olympus OM system and still have them. I also keep a small Pen F kit when I want to shoot half frame.
