Do you still own your first camera?

1 year 1 month ago #645153 by icepics
Yes, I still have it. Bought it when I graduated from college from a local camera store that let me make payments til I got it paid for. Had to work to get it and used it for a lot of years, a good bit of my life was spent with that camera. It's a film SLR that looks like it was dragged around for years. I don't use it, needs a bit of tinkering or TLC to get it in good working condition.

My real first camera was a Kodak Brownie Starmite. I took a lot of pictures with that electronic camera and truly began discovering exactly how to make up and mount a shot with it.

My very first "significant" electronic camera was a 35mm Zeiss Ikon Contina Rangefinder. It had a 45mm f/3.5 Zeiss lens, a copal shutter, the rangefinder was not combined to the lens, you had to get the range, after that physically adjust the lens range setting. Ir was a great little video camera. I am persuaded it made me come to be a better photographer due to the fact that it was a manual-everything video camera.

I personally don't have my first camera, but I have my father's Argus C2 - 35mm circa 1938 camera that needs to be repaired as it is letting in light which is pretty common for a camera that age. I don't know too much about film as I really haven't shot with film except when I was a Teenager, but I wonder if I can still find film for that camera? It would be neat to take pictures with that camera and I do have a light meter that I haven't used in awhile that will make it a little easier adjusting the camera settings. .

My first camera was a Brownie that my grandfather gave me when I was a kid.  Technically it didn't work, but it was my first! I'm not even sure what happened to that thing.

You kidding?  I don't even have my first husband!   :rofl:   Seriously, no that camera is long time gone.  Actually I think that was sold at a garage sale when I went off to college!
