+1 In my mid teens I bought an old (1920s) 1/4 plate camera, and on first use I was most disappointed that the pictures it produced didn't look at all 'old fashioned'. And of course they weren't - then. If I was to dig those pictures out today, they'd look much, much older! More recently I've bought - very cheaply - a few hardly-used but discarded digital cameras. Mostly 8 to 12 megapixel ones from around 2005 or a bit later. As with the 1920s plate camera, the pictures they produce today look like they were made...... today.
