"From Fixed-Focus Kodak Box to Digital Photography"

Looking back at a 50+ years-old Kodak Duoflex-IV camera brings back memories of what photography was when I was a child, and then, reconsidering my digital camera, the digital camera suddenly seems like some kind of ultra-modern device from a science fiction novel!
The contrast really is amazing!  The amount of technology in what are now run-of-the-mill (now there's an old expression for you) devices is quite amazing when you stop and try to really comprehend just how much technology is in a typical digital camera.

The sophistication of modern cameras make it so easy to take good pictures that some of the magic of film photography with old cameras is hard to imagine.  Holding this 50+ year-old camera (manufactured from 1955-60) in my hands brings back so many memories....
