  • My first camera was a Polaroid One-step when I was in elementary school. Since then, I have had kodak 110 film cameras, Kodak Disc, an assortment of 35mm point and shoot cameras, Minolta x-700 slr, Canon Elan IIe, Holga, Minolta srt-202 and an HP point n shoot digital camera (can't think of model offhand). I really want a digital SLR
  • The first camera I used was an old box camera. No settings at all. Only could use it outside AND in good light. (think 60 years ago.) LOL
  • The first camera that I bought was a Polaroid, the kind where you pulled out the picture right after you took it. I think I still have the picture the salesman took of my sister and I standing at the counter.. my sister with a very skeptical look on her face.
  • I was in my late teens when I bought a used Olympus OM1.Then I got a Pentax K1000.My first digital was a Canon Powershot A20,then onto a Canon Rebel XT,which I use almost daily.I really like this camera and the different lens options (not all from Canon)
  • Kodak Brownie with flash Kodak 110 film cameras (2-3) Polaroid One-step Brownie Box (in High school for black & white photos) Cannon AE-1 with Speedlite 155A flash 35mm Sony cyber-shot 4.1(second digital & also a sony) In High School 3 yrs of photography/annual staff etc, I loved doing the black & white pictures as they were very dramatic and loved developing them too
  • I'm still on my first camera, but that's good, seeings as I only got it at Christmas. It's a Hitachi, HDC-1086E. It has 3x Optical zoom, and f = 5.7-17.1mm. I got a book yesterday about how to make the most of your digital camera, and it's a fairly good read.
  • Mine was a Kodak Brownie, too. Now I have an Olympus 35mm.
  • I can't remember how old I was, but my first camera was a Kodak Instamatic. I have owned a few 110's and a Polaroid. I have a digitl packed away somewhere. I mostly use disposables now.
  • The first camera I ever had was a Box brownie - you looked down the top of it to take the picture and wound it on manually. Then my father gave my his Ilford Sportsman. Then I bought a Ricoh KR10, and used that until I got a smaller compact Olympus c-120 zoom. Then I went to my first digital camera, again an Olympus, and now I have an even smaller Olympus mju 1060.
  • Kodak, little point and shoot model thanks for the memory boost!
  • My first was an Kodak 110, then a Polaroid. But I really didn't consider those to be cameras in the sense of the type I graduated to. My first "real" camera was a Chinon FXD Quartz 35mm SLR, then an AsahiPentax P3, then a Minolta Maxim, now on a Minolta Maxim 7. Mostly, I shoot black & white because you can capture moods, and shadows much better than with colour photography. I drive my husband crazy because he uses a digital camera which I will not touch, and absolutely refuse to join the rush to toss my splendid 35mm toys for soulless digital.
  • I was 7 and the cam was a Dana
  • Wow, I was like 15 and it was used and was those long thin ones (110 I believe) and had a flash. I was so happy.... ...you know, I'm going to remember that feeling from now on, to remind me to be as grateful now as I felt then.
  • I got my first camera in 1977 and it is a 35mm Canon A-1. Since then, I was given a digital camera, two years ago, that I've never used.
  • My first one was a Kodak Hawkeye instamatic R4 model. I seem to remember it taking 126 film, but that may not be right. I had a 110 or two, a Spartus Full-Vue put out by the Sparus Camera corp(who else? lol)that worked when i got it, but not now. A Six-20 Brownie and a NO. 2-A Brownie, that I just scratched some of the leather strap off of while trying to clear the dust to see the model number :( A Kodak Easyshare Z650 and the latest...a Nikon D60 with a couple of lenses. I've still got all these cameras plus an extra one of the Hawkeyes that I scarfed from my sister when I moved out of the house.
  • I was given two different format Polaroid instant cameras when I was maybe... 3 or 4, and I loved playing with them. I actually took some pretty interesting pictures, for a small child. After that, I went through plenty of single-use Kodaks at birthday parties, theme parks and the like. When I turned 15, I recieved my first digital camera: A Canon Coolpix point and shoot. This was when I became seriously interested in photography. When I was 17, my grandfather gave me his Fujifilm Finepix s9000, which has a great macro and super macro mode and is an all around great camera which I still use today. Since then, I've gotten into film photography, and I have purchased/been given three brownie hawkeyes with two different flashes, a folding hawkeye scout from the '20s, a Holga, a Brownie Box, and I just recently acquired a Kodak 35 Rangefinder from ebay, which I haven't used yet, but it looks great and it's in perfect condition. Probably hasn't been used since 1940.
  • My first Camera was a Zeiss Box Tengor, a German made camera made between 1934-39...I got it when I was 6...Now I have a nice selection of hasselblad and for digital I have the Canon Mark 3 and an expensively large group of lenses to to with it...
  • I was 11, circa February 2004, a piece of crap Concord 1.3 megapixel with no flash or LCD view finder. I stopped using that camera in December 2004. For my 12th birthday in December 2004 I got a Canon PowerShot A75, 3.2 megapixels with an LCD viewfinder, and much better pictures. I used this camera up to September 2007. For my 14th birthday, December 2006, I got a 6.0 Megapixel Canon PowerShot S3 IS which took very grainy pictures in lower light. I used it sporadically until February 2009. For my 15th birthday, December 2007, I got an 8.3 Megapixel Fujifilm FinePix A805 which I am well happy with. This is my current camera, and the only one still in action as of June 3, 2009.
  • My first camera was a Holga. I still use it to this day, 18 years later. I currently own a Sony Alpha a300 with a 18-70mm 3.5-5.6 zoom lens and a Tamron 60-300mm zoom lens. I've owned many point & shoot cameras but they never work up to my expectations. When I finally saved enough money I wanted either the Canon G10 or the Nikon D80. I ended up with the Sony because of the Live View and tiltable screen.
  • I still have a Canon A-E 1 I've owned for 25 years, but recently purchased a Nikon D90.
  • My first camera was my parents Kodak 110 film camera... Actually got some good shots with it... These days I am using all Nikon Equipment. I currently use a D300 and use a D70 for back up with misc. lenses of all shapes and sizes from a 50mm 1.8 to a 80 to 400 vr
