Wow. I think the ONLY new film camera I've ever had was a little "instamatic" type camera my parents gave me when I was about 6 years old -- I think it might have been an Agfa but I'm not sure and I don't know where it is now. My dad bought me lots of Agfa slide film.... I still have a box of slides. Later, in high school, I had a hand-me-down rangefinder from my dad, and in grad school I had another hand-me-down SLR from my future father-in-law. I think every film camera I've gotten since then was used. My wife has an olympus P&S 35mm camera that she bought new almost 40 years ago. So the only new camera I ever had was more than 50 years ago.
