It seems just like the other day when I got my first digital camera, a Sony Mavica which used a floppy disc to store images. If one chose fine pix then you got around 14/15 pictures on a single floppy.

Today, With a camera quarter the size of the Sony Mavica, on a tiny 1Gb card I store around 500 pictures which I can then upload into a photo management programme in my computer.

The real benefit for the cruiser is NOT having to provide special storage for exposed film, then taking it to a processor in order to choose the best prints from the negatives - This takes time, and one can never be sure of the resultant quality in a 2nd or 3rd world country.

It would be of interest to hear of latter day experiences with digital cameras.
