      What a wonderfully nostalgic post. I haven't been able to find my first camera since we moved house - it must be here somewhere!!

      don`t worry dear friend
      the changes are sometimes good(nikon and kodak?...)
      the brands are not important,the things which are coming out of this cameras are important!...
