Well, first there was a Baby Ikonta folding camera bought by my brother in a pawn shop. It took 16 pictures on a roll of 127 film (How many of you remember 127 film? How many of you even remember film??)
Then there was a wonderful Kodak Retina 3C rangefinder camera. Then my first SLR: a Pentax Spotmatic. I used a varety of Pentaxes for many years (generally kept the lenses and got new bodies when the old ones died). These included MX and ME, up to a couple of SuperPrograms (one for color, one for B&W).
Along the way I also played with Speed Graphic, Graflex (look those up in an archeology textbook), Rollei, and a few other miscellaneous beasts.
My first view camera was a Calumet monorail 4x5, which they could sell cheap because they had bought the dies from Kodak. I think it cost about $139 or so new, lenses much more. Eventually I added a (well-) used anonymous 8x10 view camera, and a nice Zone VI 4x5; but after a while I found that most of my best pictures were still taken with the Pentax, while the view cameras stayed in the trunk of the car.
A couple of years ago I suddenly realized that not a single camera, of the five or so that I then owned, had been in manufacture for over twenty years!
With old age creeping up on me, I finally sold the last of the view cameras and decided to go MF in a serious way: Pentax 67II, with several excellent prime lenses (45, 55, 135 macro, 200), as well as a Mamiya 6 (RF) with 2 lenses.
When friends persuaded me to stick my toe in the waters of the Digital Revolution, I finally got a Canon 10D, with zoom lenses (my first ever): 17-40/4L and 70-200/4L, plus a Sigma fisheye and a 100 macro. I have added a Canon Elan 7NE to shoot slides (I prefer Provia to Velveeta), but I have almost completely, but reluctantly, kicked the film and darkroom habit.
Of course, I develop all my digital images in a tray, in Pyro.
