I was working on a photo shoot with a young fashion model somewhat new to the biz and the photographer talked about doing some shots with a film camera and she had no idea what film was. I mean no idea at all. We described to her that it was like clear plastic paper that the image was burned into instead of a memory card.
Remembering saving data on a 5.5 inch floppy
