We've had quite a selection of old cameras, but what would be really interesting would be one or two photos from the original camera, especially if taken early on, like the first few days.  If the photos aren't interesting, never mind.  Sometimes an early photo is more interesting than many of the later ones.

I totally agree,this thread  needs photos taken in our early times

Maybe I can dig some out ...

My first one was a Bilora Boy which was produced in the early 50's. It was given to me when I was four years old and I still have some of the negatives that I took in kindergarden around 1969 (attached is a picture of me shooting early landscapes    . Great memories!

Cheers,
Andrew

It all started with a East German Praktika reflex camera using screw mounted Asahi Pentax lenses. That must have been more than 20 years ago.

Here's a couple I took with my Minolta 16 (similar to Minox but much cheaper) in 1968.  I haven't scanned any scenics, but given the graininess and general bad quality of these, it looks like I won't bother.

There images definitely have a nice feel to them but, from a pixel peeping point of view, I suspect that my 2MP mobile phone might deliver better images in daylight conditions...

Then your 2mp cell phone is better than my 3mp HTC Touch Pro. Mine is a scam - the 3mp image has at best about 1/3 mp of content.  BTW, the Minolta 16 camera couldn't have had a real lens at its price. By way of contrast, the Minox had a very good lens, but required document film to produce good detail.
