There's already a thread for this, but it hasn't been touched for 3+ years and most of the photos in it are dead-links, so I figured a reboot would be okay. :smile: I was just playing around instead of organizing my piles of junk today and took some snaps of the cameras that I grew up on: My very first camera: a Kodak Brownie. Bought by my grandparents in the early 1950's, it shot 127 film and took the childhood pictures of my mother. When I found it in storage as a kid, it still had a box of what was then very old film and it became mine. Eventually, I inherited the Kodak Instamatic X-15, a 126 film pocketcam with a fixed 43mm, f/11 lens designed to ensure everything from 4ft to infinity was in focus. It was cheaply-built plastic that made horrible sounds! But as a kid, I was completely fascinated by the Magicubes as they'd fizzle, bubble, and self-destruct for you when you needed a flash ☺. I inherited the Canon AE-1 from my dad when he tired of the heavy equipment and moved on to compacts. It still works flawlessly and was the most user-friendly camera ever. Packs a lot of sentimentality. My first camera that I got myself was the Canon New-F1. They didn't call it "the tank" for nothing. It took bumps, tumbles, scrapes, knocks, and every other type of abuse. It was too complex for me at the time so I didn't fully appreciate it until many years later. My final film camera was the Canon T90. Still the best feeling camera in my hands ever. There was absolutely nothing it wouldn't do. Professional in every way and defined what Canon would do going forward, despite it being the end of the FD line.
