Digital cameras fifty to sixty years ago were nowhere to be found and video cameras as well. High tech digital cameras, video cameras as well as memory cards were not yet in the minds of people. During that time, black and white images were still the trend.
Colored images at that black and white era were slightly introduced when Edwind Land invented the Polaroid camera in the nineteen sixties. But, still the black and white film and images were dominant. Years after the introduction of the colored images of Polaroid’s, the first trial and error of digital camera was born. Digital camera during that time was introduced in a disposable manner. Which means, it was a single-use digital camera worth eleven dollars. It was patronized by the public because they could see the image pictures right after taking the still shot.
Later on, after the little innovation and few advanced features added to the disposable digital cameras, the price from eleven dollars raised to twenty dollars each. The problems started to occur when the customers were clamoring for more production of that single use digital cameras. Due to the public outcry for more production, manufacturers shortcut the production process. To meet the public demand, many important features supposedly included, were then sacrificed that resulted to shortlife service, malfunctions, and even made the tool expensive. Manufacturers and sellers were only giving the public a ninety days warranty which means the customers had to buy parts for the digital cameras after ninety days.
