Just thinking about various digital cameras I’ve had over the years. My first one was a 2 MP HP piece of junk, soon sold to an associate. This was replaced by a Ricoh Caplio RR30 3.34 MP device. This was joined by an interesting Olympus C-750 UZ - a 4 MP camera with 3 x digital zoom & a 10 x optical zoom Carl Zeiss lens.
Then I managed to spill a cup of tea over the Ricoh, prompting the purchase of the Canon IXUS 95 IS (aka PowerShot SD1200 IS). But I was still missing certain features of the tea-soaked Ricoh so I bought a Ricoh R10 10 MP camera to regain those features. The next purchase was a Nikon D 5100 DSLR now equipped with four lenses & a spare battery.
There have been a number of Apple mobile devices with cameras over the years, starting with a 5th gen iPod Nano, with a 720 p VGA video-only camera. This was followed by a used iPhone 3GS, iPad 3, iPad Mini, iPhone 4S, iPad Mini 3, Nokia 1020 (Windows phone with 41 MP sensor & Zeiss lens), iPad 5, iPhone SE, Nokia 1520 Windows Phone, Nokia 7.1 Android phone; iPhone SE 2, iPad Mini 5 (raffle prize), iPad 8 & now an iPhone 13 Mini! Plus 5th, 6th & 7th gen iPod Touches.
Most of those Apple devices have been used as trade-ins on new Apple gear, I currently have a 7th gen iPod Touch, iPad Mini 5, iPad 8 & iPhone 13 Mini. The original SE wasn’t worth anything but still worked, so it was donated to the Men’s Shed group to be used mainly as a wireless hotspot for the Shed’s new 27-in iMac a year ago.
I sold the iPhone 3GS & iPad Mini 3 to friends in the Mac User Group.
Trade-ins: iPad 3 & original iPad Mini funded most of the cost of the iPad Mini 3. The iPhone 4S contributed $100 to the cost of the iPhone SE. The iPad 5 saved $275 on the price of the iPad 8 & just in the last few days, the iPhone SE 2 shaved $255 off the 13 Mini’s cost.
Digital cameras I own that are still working: Olympus C-750 UZ (Ultra Zoom); iPod Nano 5; Canon IXUS 95 IS; Ricoh R10; Nokia 1020; Nikon D5100 DSLR; 7th gen iPod Touch; iPad 8; iPad Mini 5 & iPhone 13 Mini.
