    Kodak Brownie that had belonged to my grandfather
    Olympus OM-10, when I graduated high school
    Pentax K1000, first one I bought for myself

    Probably also had a Kodak instamatic or two in there, but not including those, as they were never for more than just snapshots.

    Still have the Brownie and the Pentax.

    1) Unknown 620 rollfilm, plastic "box camera" I payed 10 cents for at a rummage sale.
    2) Used Kodak Pony 135B, with the 51mm f/4.5 Anaston lens and B-25-50-100-200 shutter!
    3) Argus Argoflex, a late 1930's twin-lens reflex made in the USA

    1. Vivitar 35mm point-and-shoot (have no idea what the model number was, it was too long ago.)

    2. Pentax K1000 - first one I bought for myself. Still have and use it regularly. It was also my only camera for almost 20 years when I finally got another camera, which was...

    3. ...a Zorki 6 (Soviet rangefinder)

    Edit: I'm wrong. My third camera was a Mamiya 645 Pro TL. The Zorki was my 4th camera.

    Lots of disposable cameras, then this one with 4 colored lens that took 4 pictures at a time.....

    Oh, you mean "real cameras" don't you?

    I had an old film Nikon, no idea what kind, I don't even remember what lens it came with. (High school photo class)

    Then a Konica Minolta z something. No manual controls, but I got some keepers with it!

    Canon rebel xsi

    Don't feel bad! I shot for 2 years with my xsi backfocusing every image. Seriously, not a single "sharp" shot in the bunch. Oh if I only had TPF way back then to tell me how awful they really were!!

    Haha tbh I kinda loved those nooby days. Every press of the shutter was so exciting. I could still remember the sound of the shutter of my first cam :)
