If you are satisfied with the images you are creating that is all that should count.

This camera performs well in daylight but not so much in low light with a max ISO of ISO 1000. Expanded ISO of ISO 1600/ H1 and of ISO 3200/ H2. It is now serves a backup camera to my 5D Mark IV.

I still shoot occasionally with both the EOS D30 (3.3MP, releases 2000) and the D60 (6MP release 2002).
They both do a good job for publishing on the web, for example.
This was taken with the D60
I found the chap left by a previous owner in a weed patch, so I put him to work to do some heavy lifting! 😊

These old APS-C cameras despite there low megapixels still produce great pictures. Even though this particular camera is 16 years old now. I don't have the the original pictures on my computer anymore they've been moved to a hard drive now. So I don't have the full EXIF data for these pictures. I have copies of them only on hand. But I at least know what lenses I've used.

Why do you think you lose the EXIF data when you copy a file to a hard drive or anywhere else?
I move my photo files around a lot, onto and from my network file server and hard drives and have not seen any loss of data. There's no loss of data in copying/moving a digital file unless it gets corrupted somehow.

The pictures above DO NOT have EXIF Data attached to them. You can check if you want. I can't find the EXIF Data. I have moved the pictures to a DVD years ago. They were also sent via text to other people on my old phone. I have a new phone that I downloaded the pictures to Google Drive from. To post in the forum in a JPG format. But I'm going to use an SSD for future picture storage. Then I will move pictures from all of my old DVDs to SSDs.

My experience is that the EXIF data is lost with some processing, especially when RAW images are saved as JPG files.

I believe the 2 pictures were originally RAW images converted to JPG. I was still in a transition period between shooting JPG and switching to RAW. At one point I was shooting JPG+ RAW for easy sharing. But the pictures above were downloaded from my phone to google drive. So I don't know if that stripped out the EXIF Data. They were shared via text on my old phone. Theses pictures were on my old computer and are on a DVD. I'm starting on the process of moving my future pictures to an SSD. Instead of using obsolete DVDs since most laptops don't have a DVD drive anymore. Then move all of those pictures on DVDs to an SSD for quick access since DVDs do fail. Mine are quite old now some are around 20+ years old now.

Definitely a living fossil - I have DVD drives still and actually a library of about 1,000 film and TV series DVDs that I still enjoy. I shall whittle them down over time as I downsize, I guess...
