Not many digital cameras in this thread

My dad had a couple Nikon SLRs from the 70's or 80's.  My mom had one of those compact superzoom 35mm fully automatic cameras from the 90's.  I used all of these a little bit in middle school and high school, but never got into too much.  I didn't understand exposure or composition well enough to enjoy it.

My parents bought a cheap HP digital camera when I was in high school.  It didn't have zoom or any manual controls, but I loved that thing.  The instant feedback was something that finally captured my imagination.
