Well, my current camera is also my first. I bought a Powershot S45 last April. It has served me well, but I am hoping it will be replaced soon.

What was your first camera?

I had some old pos that used 110--no, it wasn't 110--it was a cartrigde like 110 but it was much wider. Anyway, that was my first camera back in about 1976. You never give a 4 year old a nice camera.

I'm thinking about a digital rebel now.

i think i had a camera when i was tiny, but i threw it down the stairs and it broke :( probably wasn't a real one anyways. first one i really remember was one of them slim 110 things, with the flash cube haha. used to take that with me on school field trips. since then i've had a ricoh 35mm point and shoot thingy that my Dad brought back from Japan in the early 80s and i still have it, it's all i have unfortunately, must've taken about 20 rolls in my life with it, could never justify the cost of the film, and then the processing on top of it...just trying to save up for a DSLR :D (which i know will make not only me happy...)

Minolta 7Hi.
Bought it last summer.
Really love it, in fact the photography society in university is the only society i've managed full attendance in. We had an exhibition a few weeks ago so i got to show off some of my pictures.

I, too, am thinking about a DSLR. It'll be (A) Nikon D70 (B) Canon Digital Rebel or (C) keep my life savings. My buying urges lead me different ways everyday. Just can't make up my mind. I guess im kind of cheap, though.... Not wanting to spend my money and all. Can't wait till im old enough to get a job.

Well my first camera was a Pratrika BC1, that was back in 1986 I think. That was sold some years later. Since then I've own an assortment of cameras. Now I own a pair of fuji 680s gx III with 6 lens (Which I sold a Mamiya 7ii for and which I sold a Hassblad 503 for), A pair of Minoltas (800si and 700si) contax G2 and TVS II.

Actually last week My girlfriend got me my first digital camera Sony dcs-f828. I still think that the good old fashion film is the best.

While the Digital Rebel is nicely priced, you can tell immediately that it's not well made and probably won't last. I think the Nikon D70 will be much more substantial since it's rarer for Nikon to compromise.

The first camera i used religiously when i was about 12 or so was a Pentax SLR, not sure what model number but my dad loved it so much that when he was looking for another camera last year he got another late model manual focus and aperature Pentax. The first camera i owned and have used very much is a Canon Rebel G with two lenses. I have taken all but a few of the pictures on my website (http://www.atlanticexpressinc.com) with that camera. My next camera will be a DSLR and i am thinking about the Nikon D70 as it has the features that i would need for sports photography. This will be my next purchase after i buy my first Apple product in the G5, which will set me back quite a few pennies. The Nikon seems to have very good reviews from professional cameramen that got the opportunity to see it before it has been released for sale.

After a couple of old family box cameras I bought a used Kodak Retina II. It still performs. Got flash sync added to it and used it for years. Now it sits as part of an old camera collection probably worth about nothing.

I believe my first was also one of those 110 jobs. Piece of crap really, but it was fun to know it was my own. :D

My first real camera was a 1976 Minolta XE-5, fully manual 35mm that I inherited from my dad back in '97. I only used it for a short time though, but still have it today.

About 3 years later I picked up a Polaroid to play around with (I won't mention the intent of it though, ;) ). Soon after that, I got a sweet deal on a Kodak 4100ix APS camera. It was with this one that I started to develop an interest in taking photos on vacations & of friends mostly.

In March '02, I went out & bought a Nikon N65 35mm. My N65 was what brought to my attention that I had a halfway decent eye (no pun intended) for photography.

In August '02, I sold off the N65 & bought a Minolta Dimage 7i. I learned a lot with that camera, and even got to use it for work purposes.

About a year after I got the Dimage 7i, I sold it to Backtothemac & bought a Nikon D100. I made the decision to invest in professional grade equipment, mostly because this "hobby" had turned into much more than I'd ever though imaginable.

Later this year I plan to buy a second DSLR body, hopefully the replacement to the D100, the D200. :D

My first camera was the Pocket Instamatic by Kodak, with a Magicube socket and extender, designed to reduce the risk of 'red-eye'. When these came out, they were sooooooo James Bond.

My second camera (I really loved this thing) was a Kodak Instant Camera. Interesting background on this: In January 1986, the Federal District Court in Boston issued an injunction in a lawsuit between Polaroid Corporation and Eastman Kodak Company which prohibited Kodak from continuing to sell instant cameras and film.

Canon PowerShot S30 - still serves me well, not sure I'll replace it but a very nice camera. I like the metal as opposed to the plastic in some Kodak models, etc. It's coolness factor reminds me of Apple products.

I'm going to be patient. I like the price of some of these models but since it's technology it can only get better. I'm interested to see where this 4/3 standard goes as well so I'll try to wait a couple years.

The price is tempting though.

My first Camera was an Olympus 360L. I paid about $450 for it, and it was 1.3 megapixel, big and heavy, and didn't have any optical zoom. Then I lost it (or it was stolen) last summer in either Texas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Michigan, or Indiana. That really narrows it down. :(

Supposedly, Olympus will have a 4/3 camera to compete with the Digital Rebel and D70 this year. I suppose I should have waited.

My mother bought me a Carena 35mm camera when I was about 10 I think, that was my first camera. I've since used a Rolei, the ever-popular Pentax K-1000 and a 110mm Pentax (I love 110 cartridge film.)

As for digital cameras:
Olympus C720-UZ (sucked so I sold it.)
FinePix 1700Z
FinePix 50i
FinePix S304
FinePix S602
and FinePix S1 Pro (current main camera)

My first real camera (beyond little crappy plastic ones) was a Nikon Zoom-Touch 800. My dad found it atop a car in a parking lot and after 90 days in the lost and found... it was mine. After that, I graduated to a Nikon FE5 (I think) SLR and bought a tiny little Cybershot-U for when I can't carry around a 8 pound camera bag.

That sounds right. I sold a few of those when they were new. It took really amazing photos considering the size of the negative. The controls were a bit small, though. Still, being able to carry an SLR and all its accessories and lenses in one pocket had value.

That, and that 110 film was just drop in and shoot. I had a bunch of bad experiences with 35mm film cameras and the film not catching and advancing properly. When I first got it, it was a miracle :)

How much was it new, by the way?

It was slick. I believe we sold it for $249 by itself and $329 for the kit including all the lenses.

Yeah, the old box cameras are a lot of fun, provided you can find film for them. The first I had was this one: http://homepage.mac.com/mattdenton/photo/cameras/agfa_cadet.html. (Maybe a bit confusing, but that's not the same Agfa that exists today, rather it's the company that became GAF and was better known for Viewmasters. There was an asset seizure after WWI.)

I'd always see my mom taking pictures, and she wouldn't let me "waste" her flim. :o

So, for my 6th birthday, I got this teal-green film camera. I was so excited... it was a real camera, not a disposable one. Well I used up the film in a day, (as I was so excited and hyper with it) and my mom wouldn't buy me film for a while after that. Most of my pictures were absolutely horrible (like taking a picture of the wall).

The first camera that I every bought with money I earned myself? That would be a Polaroid Swinger. See the Ad. (http://www.tvparty.com/g2c/swinger00.ram)

It only took small, black and white photos, and you had to coat each picture with the coating squeegee that came packaged with the film. If you didn't, they'd fade quickly.

Oh yes, the young woman in the commercial, with the great legs,,,, Uh yes, that would be Ali MacGraw. Amazing, isn't it?

But my first actual camera was a Fujifilm Dx-10 digital camera. It was only .75 Megapixel, but took good pictures for what it was.

Hard to believe that I have a Pro1 and a 30d currently. How times change!

Simple design, but I was surprised that it was later copied (adding zoom) by much more expensive cameras (though also more thin).

I've had a bunch of film camera's over the years, starting with 35mm ones in the early 90's...all junk really :)

First digital was a Canon Powershot G2 when it first came out, sold that to a friend of mine about a year and a bit ago and bought a Canon Rebel XT bare body and the 17-85mm EF-S lens. I'm rather happy with it.

I'd take a picture of it but umm...ya...it's my only camera at the moment :)

I'm considering that waterproof olympus point and shoot for kayaking http://www.olympuscanada.com/cpg_section/product.asp?product=1287 that one...it's either that or get a waterproof casing for my DSLR which will cost about 2x as much and be about 5x less portable (I can picture myself now fumbling around with it while I'm in the kayak...) Anyone have one of those? Love to hear a review before I buy one :)

over the last 6 or 7 years i have taken a huge amount of pictures, yet did not have a camera of my own. i always borrowed them from friends and family. i can only guess the number of different cameras i used in that timespan, got to be somewhere around 40 cameras, of all the manufacturers you can think of. i'm talking digital and analog here.

some highlights (as in, i can remember those): Fujica AX-1, Canon EOS 300, Sony DSC-P9, Canon EOS 350D, Kodak DX 7630, Konica Minolta Dimage X50.

The borrowing has ended now, as i got myself a Nikon D40 in February.

My first camera ever was some POS 110 film camera...I think I threw it in the garbage when I was cleaning my house a couple of years back. Bought a Canon Digital Elph S200 about 5 years ago, unfortunately my cat though it was a nice toy and batted it off the kitchen table about a year ago. It worked after that, but you had to tape the CF card door close. I just recently sent it off to my brother to have since they don't have a digital at all and the grandmother wants baby pictures. I've since rewarded myself with a Canon A630. It's not the most amazing camera, but I like the 8.0 MP and it does what I need it to.

Canon EOS 350D. Thought I should get a camera, so I went for a very expensive one :D

But seriously I only bought it because photography was added to our curriculum. We could either buy our own digital SLRs or use the college's old, film ones. Which we had to process ourselves. I hated that process. I'm used to digital, where you take the photo and there it is. Not spending an hour or so transferring the film to that cylinder thing in the dark, slushing chemicals around and smelling my fingers out with that salt & vinegar chemical mix.

I think the first Digital Camera i used, was a Apple QuickTake 150 or maybe a 100. All i can remember is that it was bigger than the one you have pictured.

I used it in my first Graphics class in high school, i was probably in 9th or 10th grade then.

I also had one of those Kodak Disc cameras but they would quit working in a very short amount of time.

Also, currently still have a Sony CD 300 Mavica but in the 7 years I have owned it, I have barely used the thing. Probably because it's rechargeable and I'm too lazy to recharge the thing. I've used my iPhones camera more than the Mavica because the iPhone is always charged.

1. Minox 35 GL
2. Pentax ME Super
3. Powershot S30 (wanted something digital to take photo's of our first kid)
4. Canon 350D
5. Canon 30D

I still have fond memories shooting with the Minox. Very small, very silent
and great photo's (slides actually).

Aside from disposables and children-specific cameras, I used a Canon AE-1 Program.

First digital (it was not just mine, but for the family). It could store 8 640x480 photos!:

I think the first Digital Camera i used, was a Apple QuickTake 150 or maybe a 100. All i can remember is that it was bigger than the one you have pictured.

I used it in my first Graphics class in high school, i was probably in 9th or 10th grade then.

A friend of mine had the Quicktake 100.

a plastic toy polaroid (?) that took real crappy pictures on plastic cartridges that could be washed off and used again. given to me when I was 3 or 4 by my grandma so I would leave her sx-70, which I now own, alone.

Correction. I just ran across this ad on UTube for the Secret Sam spy attache case, which included a working camera.

My first camera was an old Kodak disc camera. Not great pictures, but it got me to looking at things differently.

My first real digital camera was a Sony CyberShot P1 3.3MP (later they retracted the claim and said it was only 3.2 :()

Don't remember what my first camera was.

My first camera was some point & shoot Olympus that I took back the following day because I hated it.

What I consider my first digital camera was a Canon Powershot a80. My first digital cam was a Canon AE-1P. My first dSLR was a Canon EOS-10D.

My First Digital Camera was a 4MP Kodak EasyShare CD43. I still have it and was using it a little bit up until recently. It's slowly dying, so it's being replaced with a Black 7MP Nikon CoolPix L16. I only use it for taking random pictures at college and stuff.

I attached a pic of the old one and the new one I'm getting.

Sony Digital Still camera.... all of 1.3 mega pixels.... the thing still works and I've probably taken 7,000 or so pictures with it. The quality is still plenty for listing eBay auctions and such. My only complaint is the battery now only lasts about half an hour.

Besides the disposables i used before I got a real camera. My first was a 6 megapixel canon SD600 that I still use. Hopefully I can retire it soon for a new nikon. I didnt own my own camera for a while, just borrowed the family camera.
