First Digital Camera by Kodak

I stumbled upon this article by The New York Times which is an extract from a post on Kodak’s web site in 2007. It’s about the first Digital Camera invented by Steve Sasson for Kodak.

The camera model is amazing. It took 23-seconds for it to record an image to its recorder. The camera records the image on a cassette tape of a Super 8 Movie Camera.

When this camera model was presented to the public, the image was played on a custom player and was viewed on a TV monitor. You can imagine how bulky and stressful to have a digital image before. Nevertheless, it succeeded in producing a “film-less photography” which is now the basis of the digital imaging.
