Then came personal computers with huge “floppy drives”. Then the hard drive came about and the floppy shrunk down to under 6” and then they came out with the 3.5” floppy. I liked that one and still do, but now computers don’t come standard with 3.5” drives anymore.
Do you remember what your first digital camera was? Mine was a Sony Digital Mavica that used 3.5” floppy drives to save pictures as .pdf files. It had a 10x zoom. I loved that camera and still do. Although the picture files were not high resolution, the 10x zoom brought distant objects close. You could also pull out the floppy and stick it right into any computer. That is, up until now. Seems they have eliminated the 3.5” drive on new computers. The last one I had built, I insisted that one be included.
Here is picture of the front of the old camera:
And here is the back:
And here is a picture of my newer camera taken with the old one. Notice how much smaller the newer one is:
Just to prove that the old camera took good pictures, although not as dense, here are a few old pictures. This first one is of a mushroom and the detail is quite clear:
And these two are of a humming bird, one in flight and one sitting. That old camera did a pretty good job:
Go take some pictures and enjoy life now and again when you look at your pictures.
