  3. Well, in 1976 I was at MIT and we developed a system
    that took digital images stored in a computerized file.
    Initially written to 9-track magnetic tape, then processed
    on an mainframe computer. And it was not first.
    For example, NASA spacecraft were doing it long before,
    including Mariner 9 at Mars (~1969) and earlier.

  6. We are talking consumer digital camera here, nothing else. Read the posts
    and get with the program.

  7. It appears you are wrong here. The first paragraph
    is about an in lab Kodak CCD camera, never a consumer produced

    McCord and Frankston, "Silicon diode array vidicons at
    the telescope: observational experience" Applied Optics,
    vol. 14,. pp. 1437-1446, 1975.

    The Kodak was .01 megapixel black and white. The McCord
    system at 256x256 = .065 megapixels and 12 colors (with a
    rotating filter wheel).
