Thread: What is your longest record of keeping a digicam?

  1. #1

    Default What is your longest record of keeping a digicam?

    With rapid advancement in technology and ever busy "BUY AND SELL" thread in this forum, I am curious to know what is yr longest record of holding on TO the same digicam. And perhaps also why? Just a thread to show off your good "buddy.

    panasonic F-7s 2.0mpx, 2x optical zoom.

    given as a gift 2 years ago. the only digital camera i have and don't use, my wife likes it though.
    Today is a gift; that's why it's called the present.

    Well.. I'm still holding on to my Kodak DC280 (2mp, 2x optical zoom, no manual controls at all). Had it since around 1999 so that's 5 years already.. Upgraded to a DSLR but still kept it around as a handy backup.

    In fact, i'm going to bring it with me to Thailand later tonight. Bringing a DSLR on a 6 day SAF trip is abit overkill..

    Din know that kodak cameras are so "enduring" and have such faithful owners. As for DSLR, I think majere2sg is currently the longest user.
