The Good Old Days

I remember when I was shooting with a Nikon D1 digital SLR, back in the old days. You would press the playback button and it would take maybe 10 or 15 seconds to see the picture. Now with these new D2Xs, the picture will appear before it finishes writing to the card.

Ahh the good old days.

Well, it's not quite like watching a print come up in the developer tray.

What made me thing about this was when Daughter made a cute picture on her computer. She wanted to print it, and asked if I would get her a printer. I told her that she could print on mine over the network. You could hear the excitement in her voice, "I can print?!?!"

I went over to her desk (yeah, our pre-schooler has a computer and a desk) and sent it to the printer for her. She stood by the printer, eagerly awaiting her picture. It made me think of waiting for a print to come up in the developer, or the modern equivalent - waiting for the camera to write the picture to the card so I can check the histogram.
