I have had a camera (Kodak 126) since I was 6 years old. When I was 26, I purchsed my first "real" camera; a 35mm Minolta Maxxum 2XI. It took me a while to give that up; some many great shots. But in 2009, I moved to Digital and practicing with a Nikon CoolPix 610. My next move went to a Nikon d90 which I'm content with but cannot replace the 35mm.
