EJ's first camera was an Instamatic. She learned to develop and print in high school and misses lost afternoons in the dark room.

Lost and sick cameras include a circa 1985 Canon T70 (one of the first with an LCD status screen), full and fun-sized Polaroids, several out of date digital P&S and an early 80s Vivatar 110. 

If she could fix just one, it would be her dad's mid-70s Canon AE-1, containing his last roll of film.

Current cameras in her arsenal include a Nikon D90 DSLR, simple Olympus P&S for color process B&W film, her trusty iPhone and a Quad Cam.
