Take the first camera as many people does as borrowing from dad in childhood. Bought the first SLR (Canon new F1) in early '80s and start experiencing deeper into the photography.
Switched to the Nikon (F4s) when beloved Canon set had been stolen and keep shooting for own interest.
There was long gap for enthusiastically taking images in late '90s but with first Digital (Canon G3), the enthusiasm is back in play.
I admit for my love of a photographic equipment in old and new. I have corrected but all intention of use or dry play. A good mechanical sound is a music to my ear as well as pictures taken with it will be a great memory of moment.
I do not restrict my interest to specific topic or style but this may confuse some people as it can be seen as lack of style. Which arguably could be a style of its own.
