My cheap camera is the Minolta XG-M. I only focus myself on aperture, shutter and framing when it comes to photography and not that all concern with those many functions that modern digital cameras have.
I've always been interested with photography growing up, but it wasn't until I started working when I decided to get myself a camera and start learning and doing photography.
There's no need for expensive equipment to create good pictures. Just grab a camera, whatever it is, go out and take pictures!
