This piece about digital camera was a segment on the long-running BBC television series, Tomorrow’s World from 1985. While the segment does deal with digital cameras briefly, with an odd still shot of a camera, they primarily talk about the photos themselves and how they will be stored on discs. It is an interesting time for digital photo tech, since products had not yet really hit the consumer market and a lot about how the end-user will utilize digital photography is yet to be determined.
So what did they get right about the future back in 1985? Well, we might not transfer our photos to digital through a video camera, but we do enhance and modify our photos in their digital format.
