My very first digital camera as a Kodak 4800, a camera with so many compromises I did not have it long, I soon acquired in 2002 a Nikon Coolpix E5000. It was a 5 mp camera with terrible shutter lag (yes that was a real thing in early digital) and questionable AF, but it was a start. I think it cost me close to $900 (the price of the bleeding edge of tech).
I do not think they even made RAW files, it only shot in jpg and tiff (8 bit) formats. I originally opened the files in Photoshop 7 (not CS 7 either kids) but these files were opened in Capture One 12 and then post processed into B and W using NIK Silvereffects.
