Not quite my first (trying to remember the model number actually), but this is the second camera Steve himself gave me.

Olympus E-100RS

My first was some HP Photosmart 2.1 megapixel piece of junk. Worked for about a week before it died. I only wanted a camera to supplement my Nikon F80. I then got hung up in the megapixel/escalating quality ride. I got a Canon Elph, the s100 i think, then an S200, then a Minolta Dimage. I got my first sony a DSC-P93, next up was a DSC-V3, then an H1 which I only had for a short time before finally getting my Nikon D50.

The first digital I actually owned was the weatherproof 2mp Kodak DC5000 circa 2002. I had used other digital cameras before such as the Logitec 100, Kodaks DC20, 50 and 120 due to my work.

My first digital camera was a Sony F717. I'd still be using it if the EV/LCD hadn't developed problems, quality was really good and with 5 MP it did all I wanted (except I wanted wanted a longer telephoto). Would have saved me a whole lot of money if it were still working!

I had used a couple 3MP Kodak digicams, but my first purchase of a digital camera was a Minolta Dimage 7hi. It still works, and I and my wife still use it. (finally got her interested enough to try). The 2/3 inch sensor is a pretty good compromise for compactness and creative capability.

My first digital camera and I can't remember the model was in 2000 and it had a 64 picture internal memory only, which made 333kb sized images (I can't remember the name brand but it started with an A and haven't seen anything with that brand name in a long time). Then in 2001 or 2002 I got the Panasonic 1.3MP Superdisc camera (120MB floppy discs as media) which was the first camera I could actually use without issues. The other camera had loads of issues with it......... The 120MB floppy disc came in handy as I could shoot 20 or so images without needing another disc or having to switch discs in the middle of something. It also had a 3x zoom.

How cameras have changed.... Its 2011 and my camera is the HS10 with 30x zoom, 16GB memory card.
