The FIRST ever digital camera created was made in December of 1975. WOW! That's a long time ago it seems like...and then I remember that I was already born so it can't have been THAT long ago right? ;) The first digital camera weighed about 8 pounds, talk about heavy! That would have been crazy to carry around to take pictures with. The digital camera industry has come a long way since then! We now have so many crazy things we can add on to our cameras to make the pictures even better and more clear! That is a positive to increasing technology.
