the first camera that was actually mine was a little Kodak instamatic 110 camera. But I was allowed to borrow my moms Instamatic 126, or my dads Yashica mat 124. Then when I was in JR High I got an Argus 35mm SLR with a Mamyia M42 lens. Since then I have had a number of cameras from Leica to Deardorff and love using them all.
