I was 16 years old and had just bought my first SLR: a Konica TC-X, that I bought for use in a high school photography class. That camera traveled around the world with me, and brought me many hours of happy shooting. I used whatever was readily available for film, mostly Kodak consumer films with a fair amount of black & white for good measure. I used to work at a drugstore, so I got a small discount on my film processing. I still have that camera today.
