What's your oldest "living" digital camera?

Still the R-D1s. I can not get the rendering this camera delivers on any of my Fujis, (although the Fujis do a good job), nor could I when I was still shooting with Leicas.
This is a previously posted recent image from a set I took of my wife after some tidying of our woodshed. I had a 7a 35mm f2 lens on the camera.

Beautiful capture. That is one camera line I wish had been continued.

Olympus ep2 I think. I don’t sell any but sometimes (very occasionally) give away ones I don’t use anymore to friends or family. It’s been a while so in camera respects I am a bit of a hoarder!

Good question. I had to think about it for awhile....and, amazingly, it is a camera which is approximately 7 or 8 years old: my venerable Lumix GX-1 body. At the time it came out, its 16mp sensor was, I believe, the highest resolution micro four thirds sensor available, and over the years, I have taken quite a few fine photos with it.

At a certain point, when it became supplanted in my mu43 stable by cameras I preferred - first the GX-7 and, most recently, my still much used GX-8, I decided to fully convert it to an infrared camera. It's now an infrared only photographic tool - and though I don't use it quite as frequently, it still is a great little camera.

Here it is - with the tiny 12-32mm Panasonic zoom which seems to have taken up semi-permanent residence atop it (and the nice LVF2 external finder) -

And here is one of the infrared photos taken with it -

It was the first small body with 16mp, the GH2 and G3 had the 16mp sensor first, Olys followed a few months later.

I enjoyed the GX1, it was my first serious m4/3 body after getting an E-PM1 to play with.

Nikon coolpix 950. Since it is powered by AA batteries and uses CF cards it's pretty resistant to functional obsolescence. 1999, 2 MP, 38-115e zoom lens. Of course, I would have to find my CF card reader.

Speaking of CF cards, I found two which I had lost, which belonged with the Kodak DC5000 I no longer have. 32Mb and 8Mb respectively. How far we have come. And now, I realise I actually do have a CF card reader as part of a multi thing I have to plug into the old Macbook. Might see if theres anything on them.
