Our digital cameras

We started taking digital photos in 1998, during our second trip to Cayo Largo, Cuba when we decided to build our first website. Very few models were available back then and the quality was awful! The light sensitivity was poor so pictures taken on a cloudy day were bad. The speed of operation was also very slow and the batteries drained quickly (not NiMH like today, only NiCD were available back then). We paid over $800 for our first Kodak DC-210 +. We now have access to so much better and reliable devices for less than half the price we paid in 1998!
