The CCD Sensor: The preference for image making with an 8.3MP CCD digital camera, high-quality low noise almost film-like rendering.

asked Bing to write me a fun story to read and the AI language model came back with a story about a boy, Jack, who found a door on a magical tree. Jack opened the door and stepped inside, and to his surprise, he found himself in a magical world filled with talking animals, fairies, and other magical creatures.

Jack spent the next few days exploring this magical world, making new friends, and having all sorts of adventures. He even helped a group of fairies who were out looking for their lost treasures. Eventually, it was time for Jack to return home. He said goodbye to all of his new friends and promised to come back and visit soon. As he stepped out of the magical tree, he found himself back in his own world.

The story is reflective of me as well, as I went trudging through the storage bin and picked up the Lumix DMC-FZ18 last used 10 years back, put away because the battery was not holding its charge anymore then.

I ordered a pair of new batteries online, had the battery installed, and Walla!, the camera came back to life just like it was switched off only a few minutes ago. Took the camera out to the porch for the trial re-run, had the few shots post-processed on the digital tabletop, and went head over heels for the excellent quality images. Images like these are preferred by some photographers because of their look and feel which are different from those of later digital cameras.

Is this my magical door then? An opening to the days of the old, and a chance to re-live images captured with the CCD sensor? Let's stay on and find out what happens.
