My first camera, not a favourite, but a nostalgic one was a Voigtlander, Auto35 - one of the first cameras with a built in light meter and an auto exposure (aperture priority, basically). I still have it upstairs, in its red/brown leather case. It got me started until I bought my first 'proper' camera in Hong Kong in 1977, a Nikon FM that was hot off the launch platform that year. That was when I began my association with Nikon, which still endures today, despite a brief foray with Fuji last year. Back to Nikon for me!
