This is a very old thread but I suspect there are many new members, so I'll just ask away.
So what was your first camera?
My first camera is a Nikon Coolpix E3700 that I still occasionally use. Pretty slow camera, but still I got some great macros out of it. It's also, surprisingly, my only compact camera. However, my Android phone has largely replaced it since I hate my workflow in general.
