    Thanks - like many of us I suspect, my first camera was a Brownie (one of the Bakelite 127's passed on from a friend of my grandmothers) and I've still got it somewhere. A few years back I did pick up a couple of other models and had a lay with them - great fun, but 126 film became impossible to acquire and get processed.

    Without a Brownie, 6-year-old me might never have started clicking shutters. It'll always have a place on a shelf somewhere for the sake of good memories :smile:

    The T90 was the best film camera I ever used !

    Yep, a Hawkeye Brownie (with flash bulb attachment!!!) was my first camera.

    Every once in a while I get a feeling that I should return to film.

    When that happens I go lay down until the feeling passes.

    I had that T-90 for what seemed like ages. Well it at least served me well for several decades. :)
