Some camera my mom bought for me from a flyer that came with the Sears credit card bill. Fixed focus 35mm, I don't rememeber the brand, but it had two lenses on a rotating disc in front. Twist it to set it in wide or telephoto modes.
First I bought was a Fuji Fotonex 200, I bought into the APS system. Selling points to me were sensible. Storage in the film cartridge seemed awesome since my parents never stored negatives properly. I remember playing around with them as a kid and probably put scratches & shit all over them. Mid-roll change too, though the 200 didn't have the feature, and I couldn't afford the next model up.
First digital. AGFA ePhoto Smile. Quality was pretty shitty, but I thought it was really cool given it was sub-$100.
I had the usual cheap 110 and 35mm P&S that every middle-class '80s kid seems to have owned at some point or other.
I saved up birthday and Christmas money for a couple of years in middle/high school and bought one of these. Nikon N60, kind of shit in retrospect but at the time it felt like a "real" camera, and it fit my budget. I was using my dad's old EM before it, but needed a full manual camera for photo classes. (The EM was Aperture Priority only.)
>>2764744 Oh shit, I had that thing too, good little P&S. I had a DSLR and stuff by the time I got it, but wanted a cheap beater camera that took AAs, and it had the best reviews of anything in its price range.
>>2764811 I remember being pretty annoyed that it was 6mp instead of the equivalent Sony's 7mp but I took a lot of pictures with it at school and was pretty happy. I learned the exposure triangle with a Pentax K1000 though
