I bought my first serious camera when I was 15. It was a Minolta X700. I do not remember why it was exactly this camera and despite the fact that I might chose a different camera for that amount of money from what I know about camera models nowadays I can say that this was not a bad choice either.

Once I was done with the obligatory phases that every rising photographer has to pass (sunsets, family, animals and landscape), people became one of my favorite topics rather quickly.
