Twenty years ago, the most popular digital cameras had almost half-a-megabyte of resolution and used floppy disks for image storage. Truly. Watch this fun video from ‘The 8-Bit Guy’ on YouTube. He presents a great history lesson in the state of digital photography circa 1997.
Looking forward, I can’t imagine how archaic our current DSLRs and iPhones will look to photographers in 2037. Will they even call it digital photography then?
