Do you recognize any of these cameras??
I got the urge recently to buy some old vintage cameras from ebay. I'm actually too young to remember any of these (I'm 34) but I think they look so cool. The top left photo is a Brownie Starlet, top right is a Brownie Reflex and bottom right is an Argus. I honestly just bought them to take photographs of them but I guess I should do a little research and try to figure out how to use them. I'm not even sure if they are "working" cameras but I'm going to give them a whirl or at least try when I get the chance.
What was the first camera you had as a kid? I think the furthest I can remember back was having one of those long rectangle shaped cameras, almost like the shape of a brick but a little thinner. I don't know what brand it was or what they were called but I think that's the first camera I remember using. I remember being fascinated with cameras even when I was a little girl. I wanted to take a ton of pictures but always felt like I had to "save" my film since I only had 24 exposures. Ahh...those were the days. Thank goodness for digital now.
I'd love to hear your experiences as a kid with your first camera...please leave a comment to share!
