What was your first camera?

My first camera was a "Snappy". It was a plastic toy camera which took 120 roll film and I guess I was about 6 yrs old when my parents gave it to me.

It leaked light and so when the film was developed there were white patches along one edge of the prints but I loved it and took quite a few shots with it - all B&W.

I remember taking it on holiday when we went to the West Coast of Scotland and trying to capture grey seals on a little island in the Hebrides. They were of course completely unrecognisable when the film was processed.

I think my parents still have some of the prints to this day.
