Detailed information

From 1996, the Casio QV-10 was the first sub-$1,000 consumer digital camera, selling for $650. 320 x 240 pixels. 2MB non-removable memory.  When it got a fatal error, you would need to ship the whole unit back to Casio to fix it.

Did you know ...

... how Dick pronounced "non-removable"?
... what are "early adapters"?

Other Early Digital Cameras

Sony produced a floppy disk digital camera in 1997, the Mavica FD5.  In December 1999, Panasonic came out with its first digital camera that used an Imation SuperDisk (120MB), and Dick managed to get hold of one of only 6 of them in the world.  In due course, Dick will talk about the Panasonic PV-SD4090 again on a Warehouse Friday in Episode 305.


And in 2006, this American Idol Digital Blue sells for a meagre $19.90.
