    I was poking around the net and found a pic of the very first camera I ever bought.

    I bought it at the neighborhood grocery store, but it was far too long ago to remember how much I paid. I still have a lot of the pictures I took with that camera here somewhere. Someday I need to dig them out.

    I still have my first camera that given to me for my 8th birthday. I have it stashed away (ok - Malachite put it in a box so it was out of the way :lol: ) but it is a Kodak 126 camera. My first "real" camera was a German made Rolleiflex SL35 with Ziess lenses that my father gave me when I was 13. While I don't have that camera anymore, I do have one just like it. Out of all of my cameras (and there's a lot of them) it's my favorite one. :mrgreen:

    It produced some strange images that's for sure! Very difficult to depress the shutter without wiggling badly - the white button is in a stupid place and has about an inch of travel (or so I recall!).

    I remember having a Kodak instamatic 126 as well as a Kodak Ektralite 110 camera as a kid. I still have them somewhere even 25 years later.

    I cant think of the name of any of my firsts... one was a real plastic 35mm piece of junk that i accidentally smashed into a billion pieces when i slipped while tryin to climb a monument at a state park (i was probably 10yrs old)... the other was one of thos disc cameras... the film was a round piece with abunch of frames proabably smaller than 1/4" x 1/4" something like the below...but cheaper looking...
