Hello Roger, I was hoping you could tell me what your first still film camera was that you started out with and what camera do you prefer to use now?

Assume his first camera was a Brownie 127 as everybody had these as Christmas presents but understand that he now uses a Leica Digital.  The 127 negative is a very useful size given a quality lens.

I use a Leica M9 or a Leica Q these days. My first camera was some cheap Soviet job with a plastic lens but I bought a Nikon when I left art college.

The first time I held a film camera in my hand was at Film School. After film school I owned an Eclair NPR, which was my favorite documentary camera.
