Throwback Thursday – JamCam

by Tony Gamble

It wasn’t that long ago that putting a picture on the web involved buying film, getting the photo developed and then scanning it into your computer. The advent of the consumer digital camera made this workflow so much shorter. It also lets us take better pictures by granting instant previews on large, colourful LCD viewfinders. But the technology of digital photography has matured so much since then.

Today we have many megapixels of high-resolution photos, but just over a decade ago the quality of the digital photo was a mere 0.3 megapixels. To compare, the image below was taken with a modern Nikon DSLR camera. It is composed of 4288 pixels across and 2848 pixels down. That’s a whopping 12 megapixels! In fact, the original photo was too large to use on this page (click here to download the full image).


In stark comparison, this old classic, the JamCam 3, produced the following photo at only 640 pixels across and 480 down. The difference is quite apparent.


Still, no matter the image resolution, the ability to instantly digitize a photo and quickly upload it to your computer has completely changed the landscape of the World Wide Web. We tell stories, form relationships and sell goods and services in a way that screams for attention in a growing Internet population.

Oh, by the way… here is that wonderful Throwback Thursday tech, the JamCam 3.0.
