Bang, here it is. The DC4800. This was my principal camera for over four and a half years. This photo was taken the day I acquired its successor, a Canon Rebel XT, which was used to take this picture.
I got the DC4800 in February, 2001. It was my first megapixel camera. The image quality was wonderful. It was light, its battery held a long charge, and it connected to the computer via USB, so downloading the images was a lot brisker than it was using the previous cameras — ironic when you consider this camera’s images were over eight times larger that those of the DC40 or DC50. This was the first digital camera I ever had that made me think, yeah, this is a real camera. It’s not a toy, it’s not an experiment… it’s a camera. Sure was: at the time I bought it, it cost me over 0.
