- Real Name
You would probably cry all day for what you could get for it, compared to what you paid!The friend who found me my first (second hand) digital camera knew I wouldn't be interested in anything pedestrian! I still have that Coolpix 4500, along with the wide angle, tele and fisheye adapters, and probably won't part with them. The backdrop is one of my photos taken using it - I was crazy about its macro capabilities.View attachment 718086
Might also be because you've got a GIANT beer and ditto pretzel?The very first was a HP PhotoSmart 315 that came FREE with a HP printer.
The name was misleading - it was not photo-smart.
The first digital camera I purchased was a Minolta DiMAGE s304.
4X zoom (35-140)
Five AF points
1.4 fps (4 images)
Ran on 4 AA batteries
This was a BIG upgrade at the time. We really do forget how good we have it with all of our our options today.
A walk down memory lane with the s304 (I must have liked the camera, I look fairly happy):

You were slightly ahead of me as my first camera was a S85 and I was still slightly behind you as I traded mine in for a FZ30 (which I still use occasionally).Sony Cybershot DSC S70 - This was the camera that got me started in photography as a hobby. Simple little 3 megapixel camera with 3X zoom lens. Not too long after that, I moved up to a Panasonic FZ20 with 10X zoom lens. I learned a lot with the Panasonic, and then moved up to the Olympus E520, which led to a series of micro 4/3 cameras. Wow....it's been an adventure!
