Age 63, (chronologically, at least).
First REAL camera in 1966, age 16: Minolta Autocord CDS TLR. I then 'graduated' to 35mm with the Canon AE-1 in 1978. Less time hoping for acceptable light, able to 'finally' change focal lengths. Never looked back. Only regrets: wish that it did 18 X 24format. - David Lyga
