Really Old “Stuff”
I also carry the normal collection of miscellaneous accessories including lens cleaning gear, filters, sun shades, extra camera batteries, extra speedlight batteries, extra camera memory, etc. It’s a relief not to have to carry a dozen rolls of film with me though!
I got the Ansco Cadet II box camera when I was about 14 or so. I worked in a camera shop after school and on weekends, and that was my first camera. My mother gave me the Kodak Signet 40 35mm for Christmas when I was 14, I think, and I shot miles of film through that poor camera.
In about 1979 I bought an Olympus OM-10 and started my first “Real” SLR system. I had used a lot of SLR (and TLR) cameras in the preceeding years but I had never owned one of my own. I bought a couple of lenses for it, and in 1980 I bought an Olympus OM-2N since it used the same lenses as all the other OM system cameras. I still have that camera and wouldn’t trade it for anything. Because of the way I acquired it it has very special meaning to me.
The Sony DSC-P50 was my first digital camera, and I think I purchased it in 2001 or so. I don’t use it any longer but I still have it around here somewhere. I bought the Sony DSC-H9 in 2008, but it seldom sees any use these days either.
