My first digital camera bought around May 2002. It’s first trip was the Mathoura and Echuca break. It went well until I ran out of card space.
I bought it from the shop just below where I worked for Telstra at 242 Exhibition Street. The camera is easy to use and the photos turned out reasonably well. They were well focussed and the colour reproduction was good. It used AA batteries and rechargeable ones worked well. Photos were written to SmartMedia cards. They didn’t hold much data and they were expensive. It was easy to run out photo storage space.
