Max, the comparison with digital photography is a little unfair - 4x5" film is huge, hence the quality. You don't get images like that with 35mm film. David, there are digital backs for cameras, particularly medium format, but they are extremely expensive.

@Vic - yeah I still have all my old Olympus gear, I could get full frame of anything from the moon to a 2mm long water bug. I often wonder why no one has got into making digital backs for the old cameras. Most of the Olympus OM series had removable backs, so it shouldn't be that difficult to make a replacement back with a digital sensor and all the electonics to go with it.

Good Question -- bit it's not just 1s turning to 0s ... it's evolving file formats and media -- if you have an old data base from an old program on an 8" floppy disk for example ... good luck getting that data back :-)

My mom was only 10 when the war started and 15 when it finished -- I think I once mentioned that they didn't get electricity in their house until 1943. She lived in Sheffield, which was a big steel town in those days. Toward the end of the war it was a target for the German flying bombs ("buzz bombs") -- she said that it was when the sound cut out that you had to start worrying...

Please, don't get me started wrt Kodachrome. I had to mothball/scrap more than 10k$ of 35mm silver halide camera gear, because of the "new market"! Beyond the film quality, look at the exquisitely careful lighting and posing; yes, they are "staged" shots, but so were Karsh's... (if anyone still knows who Karsh was) cheers, - vic

I believe Kodachrome also had great archival qualities as compared to other slide films. I wonder what the archival qualities of a flash driver are? How many years before those 1's turn to 0's, or maybe 1/2's?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
