Some Digital Camera History Sites and Articles

NOTE 1:  These URLs were checked before posting, however, many organizations have an annoying  tendency to change site addresses or delete material without notice, especially manufacturers and educational sites - always reorganizing their web pages for some unknown reason.  Links may become broken/unusable at any time.  If this happens, try using just the first portion of the URL, or do a google.com search.

NOTE 2:  Although the below site URLs have been linked, it is sometimes faster to connect by copying the URL and pasting it into the address section at the top of an open web page.
