¿Tú recuerdas cual fue tu primera cámara y cuáles tus primeras fotos?
Mi padre me acaba de regalar la cámara con las que nos retrató a mi hermana y a mi de pequeños. Es una Polaroid 320 con todo y flash. ¿Cómo la ven?.
One day I was trying to remember which was my first camera ever and suddenly a vague image of that camera came to my mind, then I started searching it on Google images.
So, this is the camera, an Pocket Instamatic 20 by Kodak, I remember that this was a gift from Santa Claus in 1980, I was 7 years old. I wonder how many kids asked Santa for a camera on that time. Well I can still remember that I was one of the happiest that day. I was running from one place to another taking pictures to all my relatives.
That camera used this Magic Cube flash, a disposable type of flash, well I guess there were no reusable by that year. Also the camera used 110 film cartridge.
While I was writing this post I remembered that all this love for photography came from my father, he wasn’t a pro photographer, he was just a proud dad taking a lot of pictures all the time with his Polaroid camera of his first son: ME.
Then it came my sister Claudia and we used to pose for my dad and also to fight to see who would get the picture to hold it (and shake it) while it developed.
Some years later I got a newer camera and as long as I can remember, I always had a camera since then.
Do you still remember which one was you first camera? Or which were your first pictures ever?
I just got from my dad his Polaroid 320 camera. What do you think about it?.
