Dycam Model 1 (Logitech FotoMan)

When: 1990
Why: First trully digital camera to be sold on the market.

  • It had only 320x240 and later 376x284 resolution;
  • It produced only black/white photos with 256 gray levels;
  • It had only 1Mb internal RAM;
  • It had fixed focus f4.5 lens;
  • It did cost $980 (£499)!

Still, it was fully digital (not analog like Sony Mavica)! You can find a nice hand-on experience description on John Henshall web-site.

P.S. Kodak's DCS100 appeared half a year later.
