    So David gave us Four and JC gave us Two cameras so I'll just average that to Three cameras. :)

    The Sony I mentioned was a really rotten piece of photographic history. After shutter press as much as 5 seconds would pass even in bright daylight.

    The Nikon Coolpix P60 is an order or three of magnitude better!

    So true! I had countless disposable cameras growing up. It seemed like I got them for every field trip, family gathering, etc.

    I have boxes and boxes of photos from disposable cameras taken from ages 8-15 when I got my SLR and enrolled in photography class.

    I remember one funky disposable camera as a kid that had 4 colored lenses and when you pressed the shutter it took a quick series of smaller pictures (or maybe it was the same photo 4 times?) on the same frame, in red, green, yellow and blue. Too bad I don't still have any copies of the photos from it! And oddly enough, I think we have a disposable camera laying in a box somewhere that is my DH's from before we got married (over 10 years ago) No idea if the film is still good, but maybe someday I will toy with pandoras box and send it in to be developed. :-D

    My firs SLR was a Miranda in about '84 or '85, but I had a camera before that which I sent off for in my parents' newspaper and that was very basic and took very small B&W photos - that must have been mid to late 70's. Between these I had a 110 camera.

    For cameras that were mine (not borrowed).
    1- Kodak Handle (Christmas gift).
    2-Kodak Pocket Instamatic 10 (first camera purchased with own money).
    3- Can't remember what was first. A Nikon FE/FM or a Nikon 6006. I got one then the other really close together. And can't remember if the FE or FM was first of those 2. As I eventually bought both. I am thinking probably the 6006 first, and the FE/FM next.

    Obviously there was something else in our family. Square pics with white outline.
    But AE-1 was in fact my first camera.
