Before digital cameras were common in every single cell phone out there, they cost around a billion dollars.
Digital cameras back then were big, clunky and didn't really take the best pictures.
Today, you can get a decent digital camera for about $100 (or just use your smart phone).
As a kid though, you would take pics with your disposable camera and have to wait what seemed like forever till your parents brought the thing to Meijer. Then, this thing came around and made cameras fun for me, a collaboration of gaming and photography.
