Going back in time.
My first camera was a Agfa Silette LK, which I still have.
Yashica SLR, Cosina P&S, Rollei 35 LED (still got this camera), Olympus FTL SLR (still got him), 110 cameras from Agfa, Olympus OM-10 SLR, Olympus PEN FT SLR 18x24mm, oh well, that's it.
I do look forward hearing from you, thanks in advance. :thumbup:

OK ... lets see if my memory works

First camera was a box camera that took roll film...then there was my dads Pen-F and probably a pen EE.

First student grant saw a Zenith EM, then a Praktica L... and a zeith enlarger in a suitcase... very james bondski

After that there was a Nikon EM and an Olympus XA which lasted me all the way to first digital camera in 2000

In the last year I have added a leica CL and an OM-1 to my shelf, but have hardly used them.

I think I've posted this link before, but I own most of these still: http://www.flickr.com/photos/graustark/collections/72157600153352845/

... and used them regularly until I got my E-P2! Before that I did very little digital photography. I've only finished two rolls of film in 2010, and developed neither. Part of it is that I'm enjoying the E-P2, part is that the convenient pro lab quit processing film, and part is that it has been one heck of a busy year.

My first camera was a Canonet 1.9 - nice lens and I mainly shot slides. Then went to a Canon auto until digicams came along. I have a collection of some 70-80 35mm cameras. Mainly compacts but I have about 15 slrs of various makes. Don't shoot film anymore and will sell my collection. Nothing valuable.

memories, memories, ....

I started with a Mamiya 500 TL, a 24x36 Reflex.
Later, I got 2 Nikons, a FM and a FE, still later, I added a Mamiya C220, that was stolen in Germany, and replaced by a C330.
Still later, a Sinar F and a few lenses.

And then, years after that, the quantum leap into digital with a Panasonic FZ 30 and now a G1.

I still have the Sinar, and also an adaptor for it to mount the G1.
I must remember to shoot with that combo again :biggrin:

I can't remember - that's what comes of being an "old git"

but I reckon that I have still got most of them, as I keep finding stuff in the loft - except one of the first Fuji SLRs, (I think it was called Fuji - Fujion?), I swopped it for an enlarger that never worked

Started off with a Voigtlander Bessa, 8 on 120 roll film which I enjoyed using, later had a rangefinder coupled version (now worth a lot of money, but no longer have mine :frown:), Mamiya Press of which I still have some gear, Mamiya 330f, Leica M3 which had to have been my favourite in terms of its engineering and focussing accuracy.
Now have an Olympus E1 and Panasonic G1 and GF1. The GF1 with a 20mm lens is my up to date Bessa, field of view virtually equivalent to the Bessa with its 105 mm Tessar lens in a skopar shutter. The ideal walk round companion, and if it had rangefinder focussing then it would be my modern M3, well we can all dream can't we :smile:

First was a GAF 100XF 126 cartridge box camera, closely followed by a Minolta Autopak 700 and Petri FA-1 borrowed on occasion from my grandfather and father respectively.

After that came a Yashica MG-1 and throughout the next 20 years or so, the following Canons: AE-1, A-1, AE-1 Program, T90, Elan IIe, EOS IX, Rebel 2000. I believe the last analog camera I bought to use was an Olympus Stylus Epic.

I own a whole bunch of analog cameras that have been inherited or bought from Ebay, but which were bought strictly to collect and have not really been used. Pictures of all of them may be found in my Film Cameras album in my gallery, if you are interested.

Regards,

Antonio
