In the early 1990s, digital photography emerged from the Kodak laboratories as a high-end consumer product, the Kodak Digital Camera System (DCS). Partnering with the Associated Press in 1994, Eastman Kodak Company helped to make the digital single-reflex (DSLR) camera the industry standard, and a decade later, DSLR camera sales eclipsed those of their film counterparts. Todd Gustavson, curator of the technology collection, will discuss this milestone achievement in image-making technology. Select DCS cameras are on view in the History of Photography Gallery.
