(I think my USAT colleagues Eileen Blass and Bob Deutsch were also very early field testers of this early prototype digital camera...)

->> The military photographers assigned to document the 1992 Presidential Inauguration (for the Smithsonian) were given these things to use.

One of the dumbest decisions in archiving history IMO. They should have been shooting on film and two of the photogs that I talked to at the time believed that as well.

->> Used it at the 1992 Republican National Convention to transmit directly from the center platform. I recall we paid something like $28,000 for the upgraded version of the beast. It worked but is like a chisel on stone by today's standard.

The proprietary files were an archivist's nightmare. I think I have an old G3 in the attic that has the software to read them and the drivers for the Syquest were they are stored.

Saw one on eBay several years ago that sold for about $300.

He will if he calls it "collectible."

->> ->> January 27, 1991. I was standing with a Kodak rep in a seating area above the endzone at Tampa Stadium, NY Giants vs. Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXV. I believe this was the prototype camera I was using. It was tethered to a storage unit. With seconds to go in the game, Buffalo was behind by one point and kicker Scott Norwood missed a field goal attempt and the Giants won the game. I had a picture of that missed field goal attempt from the opposite endzone and I believe it made a late edition of USA TODAY. My understanding was that it was the first digital image (not still video) published in a newspaper. I could be wrong about that as I don't know who else may have been testing it, but it was new enough technology to have a Kodak rep alongside me during the game...exciting stuff.

I don't even know how to respond to that. I just know my Leica M3 shed a tear and said "they grow up so fast" when I read your comment to it.
