Here’s a blast from the past: A new video from the LGR YouTube channel with the unboxing and “testing” of a 1995 Epson PhotoPC 0.3-megapixel dinosaur recently found at a thrift shop. The PhotoPC was not only Epson’s first foray into the digital camera business, but it was also the first-ever color digital camera on the consumer market for less than $500.

This video from The 8-Bit Guy is a heck of a lot of fun for those of us who remember using early digital cameras that recorded images and videos to floppy disks, super disks and CDs. Ok, we’re showing our age but who cares?

Well now if this isn’t incredibly frustrating! Susan L. Angstadt, a staff photographer at the Reading Eagle in Pennsylvania spent all day Friday preparing to capture the spectacular demolition of some local smokestacks for the newspaper only to get “photobombed” at the last second by a guy with an iPhone who leapt in front of her.

If there’s one universal rule of sports photography, it’s that you have to actually use your camera if you want to get the shot. Evidently these sideline photographers at last night’s College Football National Championship game between Alabama and Georgia missed the memo, because none of them has a camera eye up to their eye as the ball is in the air.

Things were tough during the Stone Age. No camera bags; no photo backpacks, either. Some citizens were so starved for visual stimulation that they resorted to painting stick figures on the walls inside their caves. Others just bided their time, waiting to evolve.

Have you ever noticed a yellow tint to the glass in a vintage lens? That may be because certain lenses in the 60s and 70s used a Thorium coating that yellows over time. Thorium has a high refractive index that improves light transmission, but it also turns out to be slightly radioactive.

The late Bruce Mozert was an American photographer who gained acclaim in the late 1930s for photographing pretty pin-ups posing underwater.
