The first “real” camera that I remember ever using, was this – picture from internet:
Obviously, as you can see from the logo on the camera, this was from Time Magazine. My parents subscribed to the magazine and one year, as a bonus, Time sent us this nifty little film camera.
Nothing fancy about this camera at all – what do you expect for a free camera. I thought it was really cool and I was so impressed with it when I held and turned the focus ring.
I am not sure what happened to this camera, but it would be great to find it just for nostalgic purposes.
