Digital photography has come a long way, as the new iPhone 7 and Moto Z demonstrate

In 2005 I bought myself the first digital SLR camera under $1,000. The Nikon D70 was then only the second such “cheap” digital single-lens reflex camera on the market. It was a huge investment for me at the time but it was worth every cent. Not only did it rekindle my love of photography but it opened up the world of digital.
