What is your oldest digital photo?
Mine is from March 19th, 2001 and is a rather nondescript photo of a flower in my parents' backyard.
Interestingly enough, I remember taking some photos a few years earlier, sometime around 1998 or 1999, with this crazy old camera that used a 3.5-inch floppy disk to write images to (at 640 x 480 resolution!). I have no idea where those ultimately ended up over the years.
The real reason and use I found for was in conjunction with my Video Toaster (Amiga) and even then...but good memories.
The first shot I have of myself on modern digital camera is the first Digital camera that Panasonic came out with (I was doing tech support for Panasonic at the time, and the camera has just come out.. We used it to photograph our Halloween party).. It was really low resolution and was a point and shoot..the indoor shot was kind of grainy and blurry..
Since some people here are mentioning the disc driven Mavica, The first digital camera I had purchased was the Panasonic PV-SD5000, which was also used a floppy disk. But it used the superdrive compression. So one disk was a whopping 120 MBytes..which was huge at that time.
As an aside, I always joke with people, "The Last time I went to Disney World, Epcot didn't exist!"
It took me awhile to figure out how I wanted to organize that data.
Not sure why the image isn't embedding.
"11 used starting from $11.00"
I don't even want to know how much that thing was when it first came out?
