Fellow collectors, camera enthusiasts and tech buffs. It has been a while since the last news update so here we go. We have been improving our website a little so it is in full accordance with the GDPR (General Data Privacy Regulation) and therefore the EU-DSGVO (European GDPR). There is a banner at the bottom of our website telling you so. We also added SSL to the website so you know you are on a secure site. We do not hide behind some outdated or misinterpreted laws, rules or regulations as some competitors do ('oh look, here is the Freedom of Information Act, so we can do whatever we want and whenever we want! Everything on the web is ours and we treat is as such!). No, this is a completely foolish approach when it comes to applicable laws and we do not condone nor support such radical behaviour. We respect every law which applies to delivering digital content and handling website data. We strife to be a safe and secure website and giving you the most pleasant experience you can have while browsing our content.
 
Having said this we are now adding more and more digital cameras, rarities and oddities to the website then ever before. Funny enough it has come to our attention that claims are being made that our website is so insignificant that it does not show up in any of the major ranking services. To be honest, we totally do not care about site rankings but we do care about SEO/SER. We own over a dozen domain names and meanwhile we rank #1 in most of Google's search results for vintage digital cameras (e.g. when you Google for the Fujix ES-1 or Fujix ES-20 we show up as first in search result and these are just two examples). So, while others gloat and brag about their website statistics, we lean back and enjoy the show and we certainly hope that you, dear visitor, can make the distinction.
 
One of the latest entries, thanks to my buddy Andrew from down under, is the extremely rare red Gundam Ricoh DC-3G. Check out how beautiful vintage digital cameras can actually be.

The reason we were silent for quite some time is simple. We have been very active offline and gathered some tremendeous new information about some early digital cameras. Some information entirely exclusive and never before published on the internet. But we are holding back this information for one good reason. The notorious Mr. Carter from digicamhistory.com who has been copying from our website since we started. For years unable to dig up any rare news of his own, he has been frantically snatching information from our site and published it as his own findings. Whatever information from us he could not verify, he simply discredited it as fake or rumour. Yes, in many cases we proved Mr. Carters findings as erroneous but he persistently keeps holding on to most of his nearly two decades old information. His latest stunt being the cloning of our "das Original" logo from our german site. How pathethic indeed.
 
We have also received quite some mail from our contacts in the imaging industry, all of them complaining about the rude, arrogant, persistent and pesky behaviour of one Mr. Carter trying to get his greedy hands on information we already have published in many cases. Most of the complaints were about his arrogant behaviour and him not giving credit to anyone except himself, thus ignoring all forms of copyright and ownership and cowardly hiding behind some "freedom information act". Sorry, Mr. Carter but you made yourself not a good name throughout the imaging industry with this.
 
In a way this prevents us from publishing new and rare findings, let alone exclusive content we have been gathering the last months. We therefore decided to enforce the use of watermarks on our images and avoid using names and sources, simply to protect them from the harressments of one Mr. Carter. We always provide and honor copyrights since day one and we can prove and provide every source of every image and every bit of information you find on our websites. From all the picture material on our websites only 3 or 4 images came from Mr. Carter's website and we credited him with the copyrights. The rest of our website came from different sources and as claimed before, is entirely provable.
 
Sorry guys, but there is always one rotten egg in the basket!

We finally managed to get our hands on a Panasonic PV-SD5000. A very rare camera from which we thought it never went to market. Apparently it did, if even for a short period of time.
