In the summer of 1998 a coworker bought a Sony Mavica digital camera. I borrowed it over the July 4th weekend and put it to work. It was a low-resolution camera, with the images being only 640X480 and stored on a floppy disc. We didn’t know much about JPEG’s at the time and it looks like they got saved a few times. The best part of the camera was its 10X optical zoom. The 3.5 floppy disc Mavica was introduced in 1997.
So bear with me here, with these over-compressed images. I decided to include them in the blog because they show many things I never shot with film or later digital cameras. I don’t know where I stored them back then, I must have downloaded them onto my work computer because I didn’t have one of my own until the following year. I bought my first digital camera two years later.
Hard to believe that the top was knocked off by Katrina.
They’re still there.
