Later, I was opening boxes and bags of physical photos and came across a Kodak Picture CD and negatives from 2007! Talk about a flood of memories! Let's look at the 6 degrees of separation (AKA 6 steps!) from Instamatic to Instagram for today's Tech Tidbits Tuesday!
My first camera--a Kodak Instagram. When I researched a bit online today, I found that Kodak had an Instamatic 2014 model in the works. Hmm! Further research revealed that there's an Instamatic 5 Android phone. Double hmm!
Purchased a Pentax K1000 for a photography class I took during my senior year of college. Ken Rockwell calls it, "one of photography's greatest, most popular and longest-lived cameras. The Pentax K1000 is simple. It does exactly what it needs to do, and nothing more." I got an A in Photography and was hooked! My camera now went 'almost everywhere' with me, despite my professor telling me it should go 'everywhere'!
1995 & 2003
Another film camera (name not remembered) and digital camera (also name long forgotten), and then...
A Canon EOS Rebel T2i--my husband's birthday present to me right before our anniversary trip to France! Lori Grunin on CNET stated, "if you want the best photo and video quality in a dSLR for less than $1,000, the Canon EOS Rebel T2i is hard to beat."
IPhone 5S--I'm taking photos with my phone. How cool is that? I feel like I'm in a sci fi movie! This camera goes 'everywhere' with me, even though I sometimes forget I have it!
IPad--used it to take the opening photo. Not the greatest quality, but it's better than my first digital camera, and instant!
Launched @TravelwithMrsT and @IHaveThisThingWIthGreekBeaches over on Instagram! I still can't get over that I can share a photo with the world instantaneously, whereas in the not so distant past, I had to wait a week to get my film developed and photos printed!
So there you have it--the 6 degrees of separation from Instamatic to Instagram!
Now, how I store all those photos is a whole other story! (You got a glimpse of it in Photos Photos Everywhere!) But speaking of storage--what was on the Kodak Photo CD, you ask? Well, come back for the new Where Oh Where Wednesday this week to find out!
What's your earliest memory of a camera?
