      Wait a minute!! How could you take this shot with a Canon? Shame on you!
      This isn't exactly a pocket camera for quick snaps. Did Kodak develop this for the consumer market or is this just a prototype? It looks like a gutted mini tower.

      Is that a tape sticked to it? Can we get a bigger version? It's brilliant, made me laugh! Fascinating how the whole hype has started.

      You should upload more of Kodak's history shots. I have a lovely little gem, which is my Kodak Brownie Flash B and our first digital camera was Kodak as well. Funnily enough, Brownie's still in use, while the digi one is buried somewhere and gathers dust. Tells you something about modern consumerism;)

      PayPaul - The camera Steve is holding is a prototype... the first digital camera Kodak put on the market looked quite a bit different than this.

      Daniela - You are right... I should try to dig up some more historic Kodak pictures for here... they are so interesting.

      It must have written the zeroes and ones to the cassette?
