What digital cameras were like 20 years ago

Digital cameras have come a long way since the introduction of consumer digicams in the 1990s. One of the cameras featured in this 4-minute clip was a $20,000 device that could shoot 1.3 megapixel photos, and used a removable 131MB hard drive that could store 70 images. Wow!

Of course there were cheaper options, such as the $749 Apple QuickTake 100, which had a built-in flash, but no focus or zoom controls. The camera was capable of storing eight photos at 640×480 resolution, 32 photos at 320×240 resolution, or a mixture of both sizes. All photos were at 24-bit color.
