The 2MP Kodak was really a family camera. But one morning at the beach I woke up early and couldn’t get back to sleep. I took the camera down to the beach around dawn and re-awakened my dormant love of photography. You can see how crunchy the file is: 2 MP jpeg to start with and I probably sharpened the hell out of the original, not knowing any better.
Here’s me with my first digital camera, a Kodak 2MP point and shoot with about a 3x zoom that cost about $700 in 1999 dollars. Since I was shooting jpegs and they weren’t very good, I played around in Photoshop using artistic filters to see what I could get. Not something I’d be terribly likely to do today.
