What was yours? and do you still have it or still use it? View this post on Google+ « Well last night was a success in my opinion #BTLcritique »
My first 35mm was a 1950s Argus. I graduated to a Minolta SRT-202 (black) in the 70s. My first camera was probably a Kodak Instamatic. My first motion picture camera was a Bell & Howell 8mm. My first video camera was a Sony Portapak. It was a reel-to-reel B&W luggable.
I think my first camera was a Kodak too. First SLR was a Canon Rebel, that was sadly stolen many years ago 🙁
Agfa and then a Minolta 7000i with a 50 prime.
I still have a Minolta stashed in a bag somewhere , hasn't been used since i got my first canon , a 400d but I still keep it ya never know when a light painting urge may strike , Film is so much better for fast moving lights.
Pentax k1000 was my first real camera (there where a couple instamatics but they don't count )
In the 80's I had (and still own) a Minolta x700. Great camera had a lot of fun with it
Now I have a Pentax K5
I also acquired a chinon cp-5 (????) that still powers up last I checked
I have a Canon T 70 that I still use with a 35-105mm lens, and 244T flash. Takes great photos still. I generally use 800 film in it for most of my everyday shots.
I don't know if I still have it. It my be ar my parents house in the US. But it was a Brownie Starlet. http://www.geh.org/fm/brownie/mE13000055.jpg
My first was a Pentax MX-1 I purchased new in 1978, gave it to a young man in 1985 when I got a Canon A-1.
+Chris Denny man look at all the cool features.. http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_kaQ5P19FVgk/TK8HfPvl-YI/AAAAAAAAHHU/bqkt9m0loIM/s1600/Canon_T70.JPG
+Steve Phariss almost bought the x700 – I think my parents thought fully manual was a bit too much for a 6y/o
+Rich Levin like this one? http://img0.etsystatic.com/il_fullxfull.247767456.jpg
My first camera (that I bought in 1974) was a Mamiya DSX1000. It was stolen about 1975, but I bought a replacement (homeowner's insurance) and still have it, with 50, 21 and 105 lenses.
This is not my OLDEST camera, just my first. 🙂
Still have my Minolta Maxxum 7000. Used it in a black & white photography class a couple of years ago. Now shooting with a Nikon D7000. Coincidence? Fate? 🙂
I had the leaky Velveeta camera!
Oh, and no I don't use it anymore, obviously. It barely worked to begin with. Fun question, +Brent Burzycki . I haven't thought about that thing in years!
I had a Minolta X700. I used it for a few years but as a poor college student couldn't afford enough film to get any good. It sat in my closet for years and then I gave it away.
+Joel Kaneshiro 🙂 – Fate….
Kodak Browie, then my dad's Argus, then MY first 35mm: Minolta SRT 101.
First real camera Mamiya Sekor 500TL. 1967!
Interesting to see so many of us has had a Minolta.
I agree, It was such a major manufacturer….
Minolta isn't really dead. I love my Sony cameras and acquired several Minolta lenses to use on them. I've had many Brooksies look at my shots and they're always astonished at the sharpness I get with the Zeiss lenses.
my first camera was a Canon EOS digital rebel, kit lens. I gave it to my sister when the chance came to upgrade.
I still really like that camera.
Are people still using film – or just for special projects or fun….
First SLR was a NIKON FE2, currently missing. First camera was this terrible Vivitar 110.
