The 1st camera i bought myself was a Canon Rebel SLR XSN 35mm Film. Still have it and still use it.
Cameras as a kid range from a disc film to a Polriod.
Digital i used a Pentax optio and now a Panasonic Lumix.

My first camera was a Fisher Price Kodak .. probably a 110. A hand-me-down from my older brother, who knows how long it was in my toybox before my parents started buying film for it again. Those things were specifically designed to be kid-tough, haha.

My first real 35mm camera that I still own to this day is a black Canon A-1 (1984). Got it originally for photography class back in High School because the teacher said only manual cameras will be allowed for the first year.

It still works wonderfully to this day, though finding 35mm film (black or white or color) is difficult these days.


I've started from Point-and-shoot on film after that I've moved to digital with Powershot S1. My first serious photographic endeavour started a few years ago with Canon 1000D and a nifty-fifty lens.

My first cameras were those point and shoot instant cameras where you bought them from the store and they'd have film already inside them. Then, my first digital camera was a Mavida Sony...haha that thing was built like a brick.

My first "proper" film camera was a Minolta Dynax 505si, after struggling through darkroom work with my uncle's old beat up Pentax. Thereafter a Canon 400D and now a Canon 5D Mark II

My first camera was a Nikon Coolpix (I don't know the exact type anymore..). I wanted to be sure I liked photography.

When it became clear that I really loved photography, I got a Nikon D3000 for my birthday (of course I had to contribute some of my own money).
I bought a Nikon D7000 about a year ago, because I felt I was ready for a ''step up''. I use some old cameras with film too! That's just for fun.

My first camera was the Nikon D5300, which I got at christmas 2013. I also use the old film cameras from my parents from time to time

My first "true" camera was an Olympus OM-1
Now I'm using a Canon EOS 400D and the Olympus Pen EPL-3, I'm still dreaming of a bigger EOS

First camera was my Nikon D5100, still rocking it

My first camera was the Canon 400D, now I have the Canon 40D and my next camera will be the Canon 5D Mark II

First camera was a 1979 Minolta XG-1 followed by a 1965 Nikon Nikkormat.  Rock solid cameras and still fully functional.

I don't remember, it was just a kodak little digital camera. Then I got the nikon L120, and now I have the nikon d3100

Canon Powershot A 460
it was first camera bought at first earned money :happybounce:
I was SO happy :3
then was Sony Alpha 100 (still use it at work)
and now I have Canon 600D ^^

My first camera was a yashica, I had it at the age of 9/10 and during my first school trip fell over, opened, and a third of the film burnt, but it lasted for so many years, until my school trip at the 4th year of High school, aged 17/18, after which I decided to use my dad's first digital camera.
I loved when the film was rolling back in, the camera was so noisy!

Nikon Coolpix S550 now i have a Nikon L110

A sanyo 12.1 still my only camera it's cheep
and the screen is smudge but it gets the job done.

Olympus OM-1. I still have it in a box somewhere...

Mine was a Kodak Star 110.

I forget exactly what model my first camera (a film camera) was. My first digital camera, though, was a tiny camera called a LARGAN Chameleon. It had no display, had horrendous picture quality, and was essentially more of a toy than an actual camera. My first REAL digital camera was one made by GE, but I forget the model. I had to get a new one after it fell out of my pocket and broke the screen.

Also, looking at all these other people's best I see why my photos are never accepted.

a Barbie film camera that my mother got me when I was about four. :giggle: My first digital camera.... well, it didn't have a display, took only about 30 pictures at a time, and had about a 1/2 cm-wide viewfinder. I got it from my dad when I was about six, because he said he thought I was gonna be a photographer someday. :lol:
