Through its generous donation of two DC 3200 digital cameras, the Eastman Kodak Company enabled the El Hibeh
team to record the features of the site and the daily developments of
its excavation in a fascinating new way. During the day, numerous photos could
be taken of the site and its ongoing excavation. These images
were then immediately available for review and assisted greatly in
setting goals for the next day's work. In the evening, digital images of the
day's finds could be quickly captured and joined up with computer data
entries, greatly streamlining and accelerating an often time-consuming
element of archaeological research.
Most importantly, since the images were
saved digitally and uploaded each evening, there was virtually no
limit to the number of pictures that could be taken from day to
day. Unburdened by the costly limitations of shooting with film,
members of the El Hibeh team were free to record their daily
activities down to the smallest details.
