Re: the first digital image

I remember feeling threatened by digital circa-1984/5 when working for a college newspaper as the darkroom manager/photographer. Our editorial supervisor did an experiment and transmitted one of my photos across town to the printer over the phonelines, rather than bringing the print over as usual. He said something about photography as we knew it becoming obsolete. I didn't like where that was headed!

Now I'm happy to have nothing to do with the darkroom...

Re: the first digital image

i still have my little casio, something like 320 x 140 pixels and wasnt the first true digital camera but it was the one that set the trend on formats from then to now.

but i find it amazing that that first digital was in 1950, the year i was born. i wouldnt have thought it was that early.
