very first digital camera, the
Nikon Coolpix 2500. The "digital" part is
what interested me most as I no longer had to purchase expensive film

Compact Flash memory cards were cheap and the LCD or computer monitor allowed me to
judge whether I needed to re-take the photo. I could take as many shots

collected some basic photography equipment I
could use with all of my gear.
My next photographic attempt will be to adapt one or more of my cameras for
