My first camera was a Kodak Six-20 bellows. Probably the Kodak Vigilant Six-20, judging from the online photos I found. It was well-used, and considered an old camera in the late 50's. Having to be a "good" kid and do all my chores for a whole week to get 1 roll of film and hope there was enough money to get it developed, kind of taught me to plan a shot before squeezing the shutter release. :blushing: That training helped through the 35-mm Pentax range-finder and a bunch of SLR's, mostly Canon. I can say, though that all that film made me a "late adopter" of digital format. Now, with some half-way decent stuff again (the Canon A-1 & 20 or so Canon lenses went away 15 years or so back) I am really enjoying the ability to not have to think so hard about "pushing the button" on the digital, but the more I use it, the more I firmly believe I still should plan well before squeezing, or I end up wasting way too much time in Photo Shop!
