    I dunno if this has been done before, so here we go.

    Well, when i was like 14 i got this from my Dad.
    Minolta Maxxum 7xi, with promaster 28-80 & 28-200 & 5400xi flash. I found the receipt for this thing, it was like $ 1300 back in the day brand new.

    I used it all thru high school in my photo classes until the 28-200 took a shit and i was too poor to buy a lens :rofl:. I bought the 28-80 this past year so i could give the camera to my sis.

    Then when i was about 17, i bought a Canon Rebel

    :eek3: This camera was responsible for taking mad pics of hot chicks in my photography classes.


    And now, at 21 :naughty:

    There was a few digital point and shoots too, S50, SD400, G9, SD1100IS.

    Man, i do not miss developing film and prints :rofl:

    Canon AE-1 with a full lens set from my dad. Used it from 14- present day at 19. Got a d70 a little after getting a Sony VX2000 at 17 from a wedding photog (ive been editing weddings for a videographer since I was 15). Eventually realized video wasnt as interesting to me. I have the eye for both but prefer to freeze time. Although I am pretty critical of how things are shot in movies, I love Top Gear and stuff because of their budget for the DOP and cameras. Sorry for the rant haha!

    It was actually better, IMO to learn on a DSLR. I put that shit in manual for the first month or so. I got instant feedback on what all the settings did. For that, I would not have gone with a film SLR as my first SLR. Later, when I shot film for my photo I class, my negative were way better than everyone elses cause I could focus more on composition than the technical aspects.

    I didn't have much of a choice in classes.

    It started as a hobby during freshman year of college for me. I took my first film class a year later. So I had a good year to mess around before I even took a film class.

    Pentax K-1000. Thing was a tank, and the default standard for student use. Also had a Nikon FG. I unfortunately put both down shortly after highschool and only recently took up the hobby again.
