    An Agfa 120 folder with half the viewfinder missing. Got me caught with the photography bug. Followed by a Zenit E and then a Canon T60 (aka Cosina CT 1 Super).

    My first camera was a very simple 620 rollfilm box camera, made of gray plastic, wikth knob wind, only one shutter speed, and a fixed-focus lens; I bought it at my elementary school's community rummage sale for 10cents in 1974 or 75.

    In 1975 I bought my first "real" camera, a Kodak Pony 135-B. It was used and about 20 years old, and I payed $16.95 for it.

    My next camera was I believe, a 1940 or so Argoflex, a bakelite-bodied, American-made twin lens reflex, with a top speed of 1/200 second, and uncoated taking and viewing lenses.

    First camera ever? One of those little plastic brick shaped ones that took 110 film.

    In high school I bought an Olympus p&s (35 mm) that could switch between 3 different aspect ratios.

    Then at 17 I'd saved up and bought a Canon Rebel 2000. Held on to that camera for about 8 years (maybe 9).
