Tell me about your first camera. When did you receive it? Who gave it to you? Do you still have it? What memories are associated with it? Etc.
My love affair with photography started with my very first camera which was was a Kodak Bantam Colorsnap. When processed you could choose slides or photogaphs
This hub is my memories of that camera. read more
Grade school, my aunt, saddly no, It was cooler than I had money for film but when I did I'm sure I annoyed everyone with it!It was a Brownie Box.
Mine was a Bell & Howell, don't know the model number. My dad bought it for my high school graduation in 1972 for $40, which was a lot of money back then. I took it with me when we traveled to Europe in 1976 and took over 300 photographs of Germany and Austria. Since, the photos have faded as photo paper wasn't quite as advanced as it is now. Since the era of digital, I feel photography has come a long way, but I still have fond memories of my old Bell & Howell.
My first camera was a piece of junk that I got off of ebay. I needed a camera to take to Europe with me, and I thought it looked pretty good. I was wrong! It took junk pictures, but it still gives great memories of the best trip of my life!
I still have it somewhere, but i've since upgraded to a Canon Powershot A560...much better!
Yes, I went to New Jersey in August 1977 to attend the marriage occasion of my nice. There my nephew gave me a Digital Camera. It was very good but full of so many operations making it difficult to operate. An ordinary person who has no knowledge of electronics should also have an easy excess to the Camera. Unless the information are provided in the Camera, the non electronic person may not answer everything and even if answered may not be correct. The electronic person should find out ways and means for easy handling of Camera.
I don't remember my actual first camera. I do remember my first digital camera, though. I had been dropping hints to my mom to get it for me for Christmas back when I was in the seventh grade. (I think it was seventh) I was ecstatic. Thinking back on it now, it wasn't much. The screen was almost microscopic, but I didn't care. I was just happy I finally had a digital camera. I went around taking pictures of my family, the christmas tree, gift wrap, and just anything else that caught my eye. That was when I started to realize what photography actually meant to me. I loved being able to capture moments that I was going to be able to treasure for years to come. Attempting to get "the perfect picture" was a great thrill for me and it still is. Oh dear, I'm rambling. Haha.
My first camera was a Kodak. I needed those cute flash that looked like a cube. I would insert the cube on top of the camera and as I took a picture, the cub would rotate until all four sides where burned. I bought this camera when I got my first job. I think a camera was my first purchase, I do not remember buying anything else but the camera, film and the flash cubes. No, I do not have it, I kept on upgrading as much as I could afford it. I went from that camera, to the disk Kodak, Minolta, Vivitar, Cannon, Nikkon, and even a Polaroid.
I have wonderful memories of my first camera, it enabled me to capture forever my adolescent years growing up in a place that seemed like paradise to me and surrounded by a loving family with the normal feuds and happiness of belonging to a large team of sibblings.

I love taking pictures and I want to eventually become better at it and start doing professional pictures. What can I study (without going to school) to learn about different cameras and photography elements as well as editing pictures? My grandfather use to be a photographer before he passed away...

I have heard Christians say, "I serve Jesus but I am not 100% sure He is the son of God..."Is this acceptable? How can one be grateful what Jesus did for us not even knowing for sure He did it?? Isn't this a case of, "I will be a Christian just in case there is a God and so I don't...

What are the Tell tale signs that someone is marrying you for Citizenship?A lot of people are falling into this trap, how can they avoid it? They think their partner is in love with them, but sadly it's not the case. Most find out the truth once the partner has got that "Indefinite stay"...
