I don't know what my first camera was. My dad gave it to me when I was 10 - it was some old camera that he pulled out of his navy barrel. He didn't have any film for it so I ran around just looking through the viewfinder - it's been a long time but I believe everything was upside down. It had a big flash with a round handle and a round silver dome behind the bulb. I loved that camera. My brothers broke it - otherwise I think I would still have it.
My next camera was Kodak pocket camera - took the weird film cartridges. I got that when I was 14. Every camera I've had since has been a point and shoot until buying the Minolta in April this year.
