1st Camera = Fuji FinePix A210

2nd camera = Olympus D580 Zoom (Great, but sold as I thought it was too plasticky)

3rd camera = Pentax Optio 60 (It was terrible, and broke within 2 months)

4th camera = Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 (Great camera, but really noisy)

5th camera = Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX9 (Excellent IS, but still really noisy)

6th camera = Konica Minolta Dimage Z6 (Didn't like the lens)

7th camera = Canon PowerShot S2 IS (All rounder, but IS not very good)

8th camera = Canon PowerShot A610 (Bought on this forum's recommendations - still love it)

9th camera = Minolta Dimage X (Great little camera, but soon broke)

10th camera = Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 (Outstanding - use it a lot)

11th camera = Canon PowerShot S80 (Nice camera, but no IS. Love the wide angle though, and still use it sometimes)

12th camera = Kodak EasyShare P880

13th camera = Pentax M10 (Bought on firend's recommendation, but found to be atrocious !)

14th camera = Fuji FinePix A350 (Image quality not so good)

Wow! That's a lot of cameras.

I've only owned three.

The first one was a Canon film camera in the 80's that my dad gave me when I was in grade school.

The second one was Fuji 2800 Zoom. It's 2MP with 6x Optical. I still have it and I keep it in the car all the time, in case I need a camera.

Third, though this shouldn't count, is Canon Rebel XT. I bought it, used it for a couple of months and then returned it. Got good pictures with it, but ergonomics was really bad. My hand got sore easily when using it on hiking trips.

Real third is my current Nikon D50. Definitely a keeper and I'm very happy with it. I'm looking to expand my lens collection as money permits.

Oh, my.
Ignoring small point-and-shoot film cameras:

1 - Pentax K-1000. For what it was, a very nice camera. Still have it.
2 - Canon 10D. A very nice starter camera for someone who wanted to take photography seriously. Sold it to fund...
3 - Canon 20D. Ignoring the AF-Servo issues, I like it a lot. About to sell it.
4 - Canon 1D MkII N. Oh my. I love absolutely everything about it except that it has slightly more noise than the 20D, I miss the 30% less "crop factor", and its heavy. But oh-my-god.. what an amazing tool. I blamed the 20D for some miss shots... I almost never blame the "N"... it's always me.

I actually meant digital cameras .....

It seems that companies are pushing out products faster and faster these days, with little difference between them.

For some reason, I feel as if I always need newer digicams .....

1st Camera "1969" = Agfa Isomat-Rapid 24 x 24mm

2nd Camera "1971" = Dacora Super Dignette 35mm - Was my Grandfathers camera, still own it.

3rd Camera "1974" = Konica Autoreflex T3 Bought from my parents when I became photo editor of my high school yearbook Class of 1975. Mom & Dad bought Canon.

4th Camera "1986" = Konica FM3 body as my T3 body died. Gave this Camera with three lenses to my Son in 2002 to feed his interest in photography.

5th Camera "2002" = Olympus C-3020, my first digital.

6th Camera "2003" = Nikon 5700, wanted more than a point and shoot offered.

7th Camera "2005" = Nikon D70 a renewed passion for photography. Enjoying it more now than ever.

Saw the post that you only meant digitals, but was enjoying the trip down memory lane too much to stop.
