Mitch. Hope you won't say I'm moving the goalposts - I just wish to move on to more momentous problems observed in the 9/11 imagery - and widen the spectrum of our analyses. After all, it is riddled with an entire repertoire of absurdities/aberrations. I trust you'll agree that we need to look at the 'bigger picture' - so to speak.
But the picture looks terribly green screened or cutout to me. You will counter that is the point.
So now we can discuss the black line and the thickness of the artifact. Why is the outline around the model not black then, if that is the most common error in the device? Secondly why is it not thick and heavy?
Third and least importantly why are we discussing "very early" 1990s? 10 years prior to the thick black lines above. That is not quite the right era for digital photography.

Main article: History of the camera#Digital cameras
The first recorded attempt at building a digital camera was in 1975 by Steven Sasson, an engineer at Eastman Kodak. It used the then-new solid-state CCD image sensor chips developed by Fairchild Semiconductor in 1973. The camera weighed 8 pounds (3.6 kg), recorded black and white images to a cassette tape, had a resolution of 0.01 megapixels (10,000 pixels), and took 23 seconds to capture its first image in December 1975. The prototype camera was a technical exercise, not intended for production.
The first true digital camera that recorded images as a computerized file was likely the Fuji DS-1P of 1988, which recorded to a 16 MB internal memory card that used a battery to keep the data in memory. This camera was never marketed in the United States, and has not been confirmed to have shipped even in Japan.
The first commercially available digital camera was the 1990 Dycam Model 1; it also sold as the Logitech Fotoman. It used a CCD image sensor, stored pictures digitally, and connected directly to a computer for download.
The first flyby spacecraft image of Mars was taken from Mariner 4 on July 15, 1965 with a digital camera designed by NASA/JPL.
Look you said very early 90s. So I have to assume that is the date of the picture as well. That is your caption pal. Do not dodge the issue. Are you trying now to argue that an early 90s picture was taken on a 1975 prototype camera or what? Or are you trying to argue an early 90s shot was taken on a late 90s camera?
Either way. You are not making sense.
BTW. I was not saying the timeline of digital photography in the sense you claim. I was saying you are posting early 90s digital photography to make a case for late 90s digital photography. Why not use images from circa 2001? Of course I know CCDs existed long long ago. I used them in the 90s in fact when they were becoming commodity items.
You have absolutely nothing. So we all now can move on. In a few months come back with something I guess. For now there is nothing to talk about. Bye for now.
