Practika MTL-5, 15 from a local camera shop, that mirror slap almost broke my wrists!

The first camera I used was an OM1(my fathers) and the first SLR I owned was an OM10.

My first camera was a Kodak box brownie, inherited from my mother. I then went on to a Kodak instamatic, Olympus Trip, and now my favourite, a Panny Lumix TZ7. I'm all for simplicity, and very happy with the images the Panny produces, so why change again?

Mine was a Pentax ME Super for my 21st birthday with a great little Kiron 180mm APO lens.

When that got nicked in Signapore I made the move to Canon EOS which seemed huge in comparison.

For me at the time it was a toss up between the Pentax ME and the Olympus OM10.

The push buttons on the Pentax put me off, there`s no escaping buttons now Smile

My first camera was an Agfa Isolette II that my Dad gave me in about 1974. He bought it when he was in the RAF in Aden in the early 60s.

My first camera was a Cossina CT-1 Super with 35-70mm lens. I really had fun using the camera though.

Hard to define what would qualify as my first camera. I would say the Kodak signet 50. Took my 5 years to learn that it had a light meter that you set the exposure value on the syncro shutter

Kodak Brownie; eight shots on 127.
It was a tenth birthday present from my grandparents.
First SLR was an OM10, followed by an OM40.
I still use an OM10, although not that one, now.

My first camera, in 1962, was an obscure 35mm camera called a Baldinette II. Its top shutter speed was 1/250 and it had no automatic functions of any kind. I eventually gave it to my brother when I got my first SLR = an Exa II.

My first camera was a Kodak Instamatic 104 followed by a Practica LTL with a 50mm f2.8 domiplan, a lens so soft it would be valuable today for those playing with such plastic lenses with flare. Lol. Eventually worked all summer (still at school) to buy a fabulous Nikkormat FT2 with F2 Nikkor 50mm. Photography started then almost all in black & white as a 25asa 36 exposure kodachrome cost just under 8 and my pocket money was 50p a week.

Mine was a Taron Vic from Timothy White and Taylors bought in Harrogate in 1963.
Taron made several compact 35mm film cameras.
The Timothy White was taken over by Boots around 1965.
