Hi,

I thought it would be nice to show your first own camera you shot with. Like a little tribute for your old babies. Doesn´t matter if it is an analoge or digital camera. Images desired but not a must.

Starting with my first own analoge 35mm camera. It was a Minolta X700. No autofocus and slow maximum sync speed of 1/60 second.




I used with the camera several Minolta lenses like 28, 35, 50 and 135mm. Also a Macro lens but cannot remember which model or which brand.

My first camera was a Kodak Disc, it took a disk of film, crap but I was only seven years old! Sorry no picture but not worth looking at anyway !

Hi P. was it that model? Has great vintage design. :)
It was a long time ago but yes it did look something like that :) what an expence it was for the film and prossesing and small prints off it!
I had quite a lot of Kodak cameras over the years to many to remember but I used to love to take black and white pictures using ilford SFX 200 and Ilford Pan 100, it's all flooding back now! Memories!

Mine was a Polaroid Colourpack 200, i think the film was supplied in packs of 8 or 10 instant film.

The image below is not mine but just for reference.

I remember having to hold the film between two developing plates and keep it warm whilst the image developed.

It cost my poor parents a fortune with film:D
Poor parents. :D
I remember that flash cubes. My mothers camera need them, too. Think it was four flashes per cube and you had to turn the cupe upon the camera for each new flash. ;):)
