Right... soo I thought i might make a thread that might one day get stickied for everyone to share their history on what camera's theyve owned/what they think of them and give everyone a little more character rather then simply another username on an ever growing site..
soo yeah share away how you got into photography and what cameras have taken you to where you are today... pics would be cool too! all brands, ages and creeds welcome here
i'll start off..
I'm 16 at the moment but first sort of got into photography when I got my first camera at about 9, this was a hand me down from my dad and it was a Yashica Super 2000 or something like that. Great camera and taught me all the fundementals about exposure, shutter speed, aperture, all that jazz. luckily for me my parents supported me and were happy to let me develop film when it cost a fair bit back then haha
At about 12 years old I managed to save up halfway to a Canon 300D, back then it was like the first consumer camera to be under a 1000 bucks so it was like once again my parents helped me out and I managed to get the most of that beast for another 2-3ish years.
Last year another hand-me-down came along in the form of my dad's 20D which he gave to me when he went and got a 5dMkII. Been using the 20D since then until only about a month ago at which point i upgraded to a 1D mkII after saving up for about half a year...
and yeah thats about where I'm at now...
now go on... share away
