First Digital Presidential Portrait

Barack Obama had his portrait taken the other day and it was marked as the first digital presidential portrait! In the past 8 years we have seen huge changes in digital cameras. Here is a little snippit from the article:

"In early 2001, Nikon's D1 was typical of the digital SLR cameras professionals were using. The 2.6-megapixel camera debuted in 1999 and cost about US$5,000 for the body alone. In contrast, the EOS 5D used for Obama's portrait has a 12.8-megapixel resolution and costs about $2,000."

I remember when I bought my first digital camera my first year of college - it was a Nikon Coolpix 4.0 Megapixel camera and I thought it was a steal at $550. Now you can find digital cameras with double the megapixels at more than half the cost. Don't let that sort of thing beat you up though - if everyone waited years for price reductions and better technology, we'd never get anywhere!

Congrats to Obama for making history yet again!

Actually, it was a 21.5 Megapixel Canon 5D MKII with a 105mm lens, according to the metadata. Body costs about $2600.
