OK... I got my first digital camera as a Christmas present to myself in 2002. It was not that great a year for me so bought myself a present. ;) I got the camera just before the end of 2002 and, at the last minute, I discovered I'd taken some pictures before the end on the year that I actualy liked. I submited one to them to this challenge. :)

Probably a good idea. Actually, you probably shouldn't ever remove it once you have a photo in the database (this entry) taken with it. You can add a note to your profile that you have it no longer ...

I didn't read all the posts, here...but I just submitted my image. The camera wasn't listed (it was a video camera that took stills...:-) ). So I just selected my P&S camera. Is that cool? Or am I f'd?

Got my entry in. I'm guessing it won't do very well, but at least I had a photo from '02. And it was a pain in the arse to edit, so I couldn't not enter it... heh

We seem to be living parallel lives (at least for this challenge) ... : )

Despite having had a digital camera for all of 2002 (Kodak DC240 and then Powershot G3), I could only find one day of originals! Oops. Of course, I had limited time tonight, I've had a number of hard drive crashes, I have computers and cds all over the place and in storage and I'm disorganized. But it's pretty possible that I don't have any others anymore. It was fun to think about a time when I thought my DC240 was the greatest thing ever, though (1.2 megapixels...woooWOO!)

Dang, I had all my originals.

'Course, I had to add a camera to my profile. :)

I AGREE! This challenge has been great, if for no other reason than the "trip down memory lane".

By the way, I found I had over 2500 pictures from 2002 and only a few hundred of those were film scans, the rest were all digital. The only trouble is picking one (out of that many) and then picking one that I think might do well here at DPC.

It has been a strange trip this challenge...I had to go way back in the CD's to pull pics for the challenge and found a few (posted above). BUT have found myself looking through all the old pics as the day went on and it sure has brought back some memories.

Looking at my submitted pic I realize I have tried to get the same pic with every camera since the one it was taken with and none have looked nearly as good even after processing.

Thanks heaps for your help with the Irfanview. It certainly answered a question for me.

I don't have a little embarrassed smiley, but if I did I'd post it.

Oh it's EFIX not EXIF? I thought it was just a typo hehe, I'll have to find out from other SC peeps if we'd allow EFIX.

No, only digital photos are allowed.

If the camera is not in the DPC database you can us the Contact form to request it. Until it is added, just use your current camera and note down the original camera in your details.
04/01/2006 08:02:56 PM · #20
So do I just leave my entry's camera setting at 10D or is there some other way to put in the proper equipment?

Thanks. Here is what I see when I right click and go to the properties from the photo:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/14986/thumb/314865.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/14986/thumb/314865.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

So...do I have a legal entry?

Edited to add that I think I took almost all of my photos on the memory stick...not a floppy. The FD92 supports both.


It appears to be valid at first glance :)

Don't think its been mentioned - In PS you can see exif info by clicking File / File Info / Then drop the box down to Exif.
