Kodak EasyShare V570

The Kodak EasyShare V570 is a high-end compact digital camera introduced by Kodak in 2006 and the first ever dual lens digital camera to see production. With its classic lines and minimalist design, the V570 received a gold medal at the 2006 Industrial Design Excellence Award and went on to spawn two more dual lens digital cameras: the Kodak V610 and the V705.

Sony DSC-P50

The Sony DSC-P50 is a fairly nondescript digital camera introduced in 2001. The P50 belongs to the now defunct “P” series of Sony Cyber-shot cameras which are characterized by squat physical proportions and rounded edges. Normally, I wouldn’t bother posting something like this on Vintage Camera Lab but this humble Sony has the distinction of being my very first digital camera, the one that liberated me from what, as a poor college student, I considered to be the prohibitively high cost of buying/processing film and allowed me to shoot to my heart’s content.

Sony DSC-F1

The Sony DSC-F1 is Sony’s first ever commercially-available digital camera, the very first model released under the “Cyber-shot” line of consumer digital cameras, and also the first of their high-end F series which all feature rotatable lenses. The F1 wowed the masses when it was announced, being named one of Business Week magazine’s “Top New Products” and receiving the “Innovations Award” at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
