Whether it be the uprise of vinyls in 2016, the rebranding of scrunchies in 2019 or the recent upbringing of the coquette aesthetic, “in with the old and out with the new” is truly being embodied in modern-day lifestyles. 

And while the chic style of the late 90s and early 2000s is fully back in, one piece of technology from that time that is now taking the social media world by storm as well.

It is none other than the digital camera. 

The digital camera never fails to capture silly life moments with your pals as seen above with Kenzie Ziegler.

This device is making appearances at bars, pre-games and any formal event. Next to one’s wallet, the digital camera has grown to be an essential. It is a lighthearted escape to take note of any memorable occasion or fun, spontaneous time. 

Digital camera photos have invaded social media feeds far and wide. Unlike the simple click of a photo camera, the digital camera holds a multi-facilitated palette for individuals to play around with. 

Also, props to the designated digital camera friend, they deserve a pat on the back especially when they’re being bombarded to send over photos from the night before, their efforts and duties do not go unseen. 

The manual exchange of working the camera and seeing the results is so rewarding. And there is nothing more gratifying than being able to share such lively memories with loved ones. Sending digital photos is a token of friendship, as you deliver beloved moments that will be embraced forever and hung up on the walls of homes. 

It holds the ability to capture the raw humanness of a moment or display a high-fashion quality that emulates a new level of sophistication. There is no disguising its presence on Instagrams and VSCOs across the internet. 

Extending from such, the digital camera produces vintage, flattering images that continue to dazzle in ways a typical phone camera doesn’t have the capabilities to do so. 

Can we get some commotion for this stunning look, but also this amazing camera quality! Alix Earle knows how to strike a pose when the digital camera comes out.

No matter if it’s a manageable $50 camera from Amazon, a pricer $270 Canon Powershot from Best Buy or a hefty $480 Canon from Canon themselves. There is a wide price range for the device for all users to take their preferred pick. 

Regardless of the price or version, the digital camera holds the ability to capture the sweetness of any moment in an authentic and loving manner. 

Whether it be the pinnacles of summer lake trip or the bittersweet times of high school graduation, this device is a lovely companion to have close to capture the splendor of emotions. 

Each photo encompasses a cherished feel as it embodies the authenticity and humanness of the occasion. The photos produced are timeless and truly hold a strong sense of nostalgia as though you can jump right back into the moment it was captured. 

Digital camera snapshots can display the best moments of emotion and friendship.

With the warm energy of pure smiles and the embrace of laughter, it serves as a friendly reminder of the goodness of humanity and the memories you make throughout this lifetime. 

In such a fast-moving world, the digital camera gives us an outlet to pause and savor every moment in an everlasting embrace. It works as a time capsule to document the beautiful sweetness life has to offer.  

It perfectly contradicts the highly edited facade that has invaded the internet. The digital camera revolution deserves a permanent residency in our social media world.
