What was your first digital camera?
Dec 4, 2008

I was just thumbing through my old receipts and found one dated 3-31-1996 for an Epson Photo PC camera for $500. It was 0.3 megapixels, no LCD, no zoom, fixed focus, no video, no memory cards and serial port interface. Wow have we come a long ways. I bought a SLR kit for $399 and a 8MP compact with loads of features ($89) this year.

Come to think of it, The Epson camera was the only one to die. It was 4 or 5 years after I bought it. I've has 3 SLRs and 6 compacts since and suffered not a single problem. Not even a memory card failure.
