Digital Camera Generations


Here are the camerasaur (big, but had 10x optical zoom and saved to a 3.5 floppy disk), my current camera (purchased in July '04), and after much discussion, my new camera (received in the mail today - Yay!).

Many happy clicks!

It's funny, my camera progression was completely different. I went from a smaller digital to a digital that looks much more like a 35mm.

Enjoy your new camera!!

I'd take a picture of my camera but I can't get it to look at itself.

What did you use to shoot this?

Heh. I wondered if anyone would ask that. I used my work camera (a Canon A540). It's technically part of the series, since I selected it based on my familiarity with the Canon A series, but since it's not technically "mine" I (conveniently) excluded it from the photo.

Ah nuts. Looks like someone asked before I got a chance to. I was going to guess your cell phone camera!

Recently had to replace the old Canon 400. Wife and offspring require constant imaging and the old Canon grudgingly gave up the ghost. Bought A nice new Sony and forgot my long standing rule of not buying any device that uses anything other than a mini USB connector. As a former engineer I hate the profusion of connectors and one off battery sizes. Even though the Sony take great pictures I now have to carry yet another charger and proprietary cable ugh. How important is this to others?

BTW very pleasant to be so warmly welcomed in the last comment thread.

We aim to please, Hilary. :)

As for the battery/connector issues you mention, yes, it's something I look at too. When it comes down to it, how the device *works* is pretty crucial for me.
