I take most of these pictures while riding my bicycle around San Francisco. I hope you will enjoy viewing them. August 27, 2007 and before: $15 Radio Shack digigr8, 300 kilopixel camera. November 13, 2007 and after: Canon SD1000

Real Fast.

The artistic scope of low quality cameras seems unlimited. Supposed 'errors' or 'artifacts' can present a picture of reality that our conditioned mind may never have conceived of.

*full photographic disclosure* 15dollarCam was out of commission. Pictures were taken with Oregon Scientific DS6310 3.0 Mega Pixel digital camera. Higher megapixels, yet still low quality. Wonderfully low quality.

Aw! Is the 15DollarCam permanently out of commission? Those new motion screwy pictures are incredibly cool.

RSL: The 15DollarCam is back in business. Thanks for the complement, and concern for the health of the device. Now the battery doesn't hold a charge for more than a day or so, and I believe the lens has sustained some damage. Many of the pictures come out blurry. I'm hoping it can make it until the end of the month. Starting January 23rd, 2007, I'm going to try to take new pictures of some of the original sites, one year later. I believe that the cumulative wear and tear on the camera should provide some interesting variations from the original compositions. Also, soon after, I may continue to take pictures for this site, with a new VCC (very cheap camera). Exact model T.B.D.
