My first introduction to SLR cameras was a rather old Canon my mother had stashed away in a closet. She had purchased it at a pawn shop in New York back in the 70's. It was sturdy metal and had a pretty retro look to it compared to today's models. Best of all it still worked perfectly! I loved the pull-lever mechanism for advancing the film, and the loud click it made when you pressed the shutter.
My first digital camera was a Nikon. I received it as a high school graduation gift from my big sister. It was an adorably fat little thing. It boasted a whopping 3.21 Megapixels! Pretty impressive for an 18 year old back in the early 2000s. And yes, I actually still have it.
What's in my camera bag these days? Currently I am a Nikon DSLR shooter. Don't worry, I will not get into that age-old debate over who does it better: Canon or Nikon? I have had the opportunity to use both. Both Canon and Nikon are top-of-the-line manufacturers, and they make it their business to stay at the cutting edge of camera technology. Each year they one-up each other in terms of new features. So, in my opinion, it doesn't make much difference which one you use, as long as you feel you can always rely on it. My journey through the realm of camera ownership was not the straightest of lines, as they say. It was more of a zig-zag between brands.
