What was your first camera?
more_vert
I got my first camera as a gift from my grandfather more than 20 years ago. It was a Canon film point and shoot camera, truthfully I don't have much memory from those days. Now thinking back, I can't recall the specific camera that I had either.
Having said that, I can remember my first digital camera just fine. My first digital camera was a Canon PowerShot SD110 (http://www.dpreview.com/products/canon/compacts/canon_sd110) that my dad bought me 13 years ago. Most definitively the camera that started the passion of photography for me.
Curious what's the first camera for everyone here.

Mine was a old Voitlander bellows camera which used roll film. I used a Gossen light meter. Both given to me by my great-uncle. When the bellows gave out I bought a Yashica TLR using 120 film.

I would suggest any of the Canon “G” series point and shoot cameras. They give you excellent lenses and ‘all auto ‘ or all manual over-ride as you become more proficient . They seem pricey but are excellent cameras. I also suggest that you check out used cameras at any reputable dealer like B and H.

I'm sure I had various 110 and 35mm point and shoot cameras over the years. My first digital camera was the Kodak DC25.

A Pentax K-1000 was my first camera. Worked a summer job to pay for it. Only had a 50mm lens for it, but I loved that camera.

A plastic one with slides of nature embedded in a rotating circular disc which rotates every time the shutter is pressed. But to the little me it was awesome, just staring at those images in the peephole and wondering where they came from or what's behind them :)

Fun is what it's all about. None of the tech matters if we forget why we started doing it.

I found a Minolta Maxxum 7000 laying around my house but also have a Sony Cybershot DSC-W570.... I really really want to get a lightly used Sony A77 so I can use it with some lens that I have laying around...

A camera my father passed down to me when I was in the seventh grade or so.

Used 127 roll film, and had a manual film advance that was amazingly easy to forget to use. Some of my best shots were double exposures (one or two triples).
