1. He says he supports auditing the Federal Reserve
2. He's less of a warmonger than every other candidate still in the race.

RE: When Did DSLRs First Appear?

Although Kodak had some models before it (some made by Nikon, a few Canon) the DSLR revolution really got going with the Nikon D1 in 1999. That's the camera that began Nikon and Canon's dominance of DSLR sales. The Canon D2000 of 1998 was a rebranded Kodak DCS 560.
