My first one as a kid was some little blue plastic 110 format thing with a simple focus dial, fixed aperture and a socket for a flash bulb. Still don't know what ever happened to that thing, or any of the photos I took with it. Years later I got my mother's AE-1 Program when I took a photo class in high school, still shoot with that workhorse today. It wasn't long after that I started adding MF TLR's to my collection, and a 4x5 Calumet view camera. In about two days when my Mamiya M645 comes in, I'll have my first MF SLR.
