Excerpt: Digital cameras have come a long way in the last few years. I remember not long ago being pursuaded to buy a brick ... well, more of a breezeblock really ... that was meant to be the best ever because it took a normal floppy disk. The camera was huge and heavy and the floppy disc slotted in at the side. When you took a photograph there was a clunking and whirring as the disk drive bounced into action and your image was recorded.
Pros: Cheap - reasonable quality - compact flash
Cons: Fairly low res . - slightly washed out colour
