• Digital Cameras

    From Mike Powell@VERT/CAPCITY2 to NIGHTFOX on Tuesday, December 31, 2019 13:47:00
    I remember seeing some digital cameras in the late 90s/early 2000s that would s
    ve photos to a floppy disk. That seems silly now, since my digital cameras the
    e days can easily save jpegs that are around 14 megabytes each, and the RAW for
    at files are m

    Mine saves pictures to an XD card. I think that newer cameras use the more popular SD cards now. I do remember using one with a floppy back in the
    mid 1990's. It belonged to a family member. It was actually nice because, back then, evey PC had a floppy drive and it was real easy to copy the
    pictures off onto the PC. They were not as high-quality as you can get
    now, though.

    My first digital camera was a 2003 model and it used an SD card for storage. It could have been an early adopter of SD cards, I suppose.. All the digital cameras I've used since that one used SD cards.
