The problem with that site is that it was not terribly accurate as a historical gallop through digital image capture. Kodak's work was, albeit, in the name of exploring consumer products for digital imaging, like much of Kodak's work of that era, a lot of tinkering and less product development. Or did film still photography start with Oscar Barnack's Leica? Digital capture is a concept and not really specific to the development of specific chips or computer technologies. "Digital cameras" were around LONG before Shockley's transistor. Keeping to the off-topic tradition I think we need to place historical digital capture in the realm of raster imaging with its basis in the work of Paul Nipkow in the 19th century (recall TV predates film as motion picture technology)--- even Nipkow's disk are alive and kicking in quite a few "high tech" high resolution capture applications--- see the current trend "live cell imaging". This list is about "pure silver". Forgetting for a moment that its about metallic salts (silver) its a very different kind of capture. It might be about capture but so is the pencil, the paint brush and the fountain pen.. Quoting Bill Stephenson <photographica@xxxxxxxxxxx>: > Get a grip on reality!
