A HISTORY LESSON FOR ANYONE BORN AFTER LET’S SAY 1995

The first digital cameras for the consumer-level market that worked with a home computer via a serial cable were the Apple QuickTake 100 camera (February 17 , 1994), the Kodak DC40 camera (March 28, 1995), the Casio QV-11 (with LCD monitor, late 1995), and Sony’s Cyber-Shot Digital Still Camera (1996).  Since then, film has been dying a slow and painful death in the consumer market.

A few weeks ago I got my hands on a few Minolta manual cameras and will be shooting on and developing my own film, something I haven’t done for the past 15 years.  A lot of the same principles that apply to digital photography apply to film photography, a lot don’t.  Relearning the effects of different exposures, shutter speed’s and different speed film on camera’s like these will be a challenge as I’m so used to digital now.  It will be a lot of fun and I look forward to posting the shots that ‘come out.’
