Cameras & Video Recording

When I was little I was fascinated with Polaroid photos- how did my face magically appear on those little squares of paper And what made the cube flash go around on my mother’s Kodak? In the 80s you waited an eternity for your photos to pop up in the mail- there was no getting photos while you shopped, printing out photos or saving them anywhere other than a shoebox. Goodness help you if the camera door didn’t shut all the way or got jiggled open- your whole role was exposed and there went the vacation memories. When camcorders came on the scene it was then possible to watch home movies on your own TV as opposed to projecting them onto a screen or wall. And the culture of me-obsession was born. There were a lot of technologies now perfected in recording still and moving images that got their start in the 82s.
