What was your first camera?

I don't think I'll ever find the exact model but I remember it being yellow, and afterwards using the little film tube to hold my change

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.

Some film piece from Russia, it was 1999.

Then a decade and a half of abysmal point and shoots until I got my rebel T3 now.

Got a Pentax K-3 for Christmas. Also used my dad's old OM-1 a little when I was a kid.

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.)

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.

Nikon CoolPix L3.

2 AA batteries lasted about 100 shots, maybe 20 if I used flash.

My old Kiev 4A is long gone, but this is my second camera. Eventually got good enough with it to track moving objects and shoot football games.

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

And it still works, but I can't stand the over sharpened murkiness in the photos. It's like someone smeared all the details.
Still it was one of the nicer cameras in 2004.
