The 1996-2001 setup was a Hitachi High-8 analog video camera attached to a Snappy interface.
It would take a number of captured frames (1, 2, 4 or 8) and interpolate (layer) them to make a denser, higher resolution image.

It is attached to a photo capture program written by Randall in C# . Shots are saved in JPG format at 90% quality for significantly smaller file-size and faster downloading than when saved at 100% quality.
Randall also wrote a PERL script running on the webserver to generate the thumbnail collection pages based on user input.
In the following link are aerial photos of massive mountains, lakes, rivers, valleys and other items of BC's extensive natural beauty. Also included, a flight to Calgary, Alberta, which showcases copious Rocky Mountain pics and a few prairie shots.

Don't expect a reply, but Randall will appreciate the heads-up if current image not updating.
If the cloudy sky has a blue hue at dawn or dusk, that's the camera doing its own compensation; it's not a filter. Also, during rainy, cloudy or dark conditions, the picture can be out of focus.
The camera is a 2004 Olympus C-5060 Widezoom digital camera.Unfortunately, the Kodak API and/or driver was very buggy and crashed the Katkam computer often twice or more a day.
