10 Years - 17 Digital Cameras - 17 Photos

It was just about ten years ago that I bought my first digital camera. The Minolta DiMAGE 7i (Minolta has since departed, but Sony carried on the lens mount.)

I'm self-taught. Never spent any time in the darkroom. I bought my first SLR at the end of 2000, just before my friend Chris and I  were about to head out to New Zealand. I shot Fuji Velvia slide film. Gorgeous colors. Anyways, I got hooked.

It wasn't long until I bought a slide scanner, because I really wanted prints of my photos. Two and a half years later I picked up a digital camera, and never shot film again. (Well, until very recently that is!)

In the ensuing ten years between April 2003 and now, I have owned no less than 17 digital cameras. From big SLRs to tiny point-and-shoots. (I'm not counting my phones or video cameraa either!)

I thought it'd be a fun little exercise to just randomly pick a decent shot from every camera. The point I think is to show you, and reinforce in myself, to take a step back from the technology geeking that I love to do with this stuff, and see that with any camera, a good image is possible.

I'm just going to randomly post the images in no particular order. No captions and no camera info.
