Amazing New Camera & PDA Tech!
I promise no other blog is covering these hot of the presses electronics!
camera :: Nikon D7000 | 1/125′s second shutter | ISO 100 | Meter: Spot
lens :: Nikkor 18-55mm VR at 48mm | set at f/5.3 | Auto Focus A Dynamic 9-point

On the left is a Dell Axim X30. This amazing machine runs Windows Mobile 2003. This packs a 624mhz Intel processor and 64mb of ram. You can work on office documents, check email and other amazing things. This Axim is actually more than 6 years old. Before real smartphones came upon the world, and long before the iPhone. With Wi-Fi and Bluetooth it was a little ahead of its time.
On the right is a Sony Mavica MVC-FD97 digital camera. This classic beast was over $1000 new in 2001. It stores pictures on 3.5″ floppy disks. The images are 2.1 mega-pixel images. Now in today’s world people will drone on and on how 2 mega-pixel is so low, but the lens and construction were good and it would allow this to take good shots, especially in good light. In its day this was amazing camera. Below is a picture I took with this very camera on 9/28/2001. I knew nothing about photography in 2001.
