Nintendo’s Game Boy was much more than just a handheld gaming device – it was also a multifunctional camera.
At the time of its release, the Game Boy Camera was the smallest digital camera in the world, earning it a spot in the 1999 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records.
Today, smartphones have made it so nearly everyone is walking around with a high-quality digital camera in their pocket. But that doesn’t mean we can’t reminisce those early days when you could turn selfies into a riveting game of Space Fever II.
Professional photographer David Friedman recently found some pictures from his Game Boy Camera while performing file maintenance in a photo archive. The pictures were taken around Midtown Manhattan in 2000, proving that digital photography has come a long way but New York City still looks the same.
