    Every now and then I think, "holy crap i never thought i would own something like this."

    It is amazing how advanced these modern dslr's are. I still remember my first digital camera, an HP 2.1mp camera that took a CF card. The pictures are absolutely terrible, and I still have them all saved from vacations back in the day.

    To go from that to my d90... god damn. How I love technology :bowdown:

    My first digital camera was a Sony Mavica.. It was 1.6 megapixels and took a FLOPPY DISKETTE.

    I used to record videos of myself skateboarding with that thing.. It would take 15 seconds of video, then the floppy would be full ROFL.

    I don't have the same thing.. where I went from a REALLY shitty digital to what I have now.. I started with a D50, which I still use all the time for sports :rofl:

    But I do get the "Holy fuck how do I own all this stuff, this is crazy" when I'm in my studio :bowdown:

    Yeah, 12 years ago I bought this Panasonic camera for a family Christmas present. It shot VHS-C and also took 2MP digital photos. Now everything is digital and a PHONE shoots 8MP.

    I am currently admiring the fact that my Lightsphere made me officially outgrow the camera bag I have been using since 35mm days.
