epson photopc 700, cp-600 vintage digital camera black 1998epson photopc 700 vintage digital camera silver 1998 
EPSON PhotoPC 700 (CP-600 in Japan) - 1998.  1/3-inch 1280 x 960 pixel CCD.  ISO 60/120.  2X zoom f/2.8 lens.  Shutter 1/8 to 1/1500 second.  This camera is normally shown as black with a 1280 x 960 pixel CCD, however, one French site shows the camera in gray and silver with a 1024 x 768 pixel CCD and 36mm lens (similar to the 1997 PhotoPC600).  The complete kit in unused condition shown on the right is more proof that it pays to  check eBay frequently.   Although still new in the box, it was found on Bay in April of 2019 more than twenty years after its introduction to the marketplace.  We believe we were the first digital camera history web site to provide a photo and information concerning this camera.

FINET TECHNOLOGY DSC-F1 - 1998.  The DSC-F1 was made in China, but the manual is in Japanese, obviously for sale in Japan.  The Japanese wording over the DSC-FI model number on the front cover of the manual above translates to "Digital Still Camera."   Apparently, there was no Japanese brand name for the camera.  Unfortunately, DSC-F1 is also a model number for a Sony camera and that is the only camera that shows up when doing a google search for a DSC-F1.  As a result, the only information we can find on this camera is the manufacturer and specs from the manual.   Resolution 640 x 480 pixels.  Lens 4.3mm f/5.6.  Shutter 1/50 to 1/8000 second.  Internal memory only.  42 photos in Normal Mode, 21 in Fine Mode. Finet Technology Co. Limited was dissolved on 23 June 2007.   This sample was purchased in new condition with the original box and all its contents from a collector in Austria.  The same collector has the pink DSC-F1 shown above, but the camera only.  The one we now have complete in the original box may be the only such Finet DSC-F1 still in existence.  We previously had never seen or knew of this particular camera.  It has never appeared on U.S. eBay until now (Feb 2020).  We believe we were the first digital camera history web site to provide a photo and information concerning this camera.

  Fisher FVD-V1 (1998)                                          Front of Sanyo VPC-Z380 (1999)                  Rear of Sanyo VPC-G200 (1997)

FISHER FVD-V1 / SANYO VPC-G200 (DCS-V1 in Japan) - 1998.  Rebadged Sanyo sold in the U.S. with internal mechanisms of the 1997 VPC-G200 and the front from the Sanyo VPC-Z380 which did not come out until 1999.   1/3-inch 640 x 480 pixel CCD.  ISO 80.  37mm autofocus f/2.8 lens.  Shutter 1/4 to 1/10,000 second.  An interesting story about this camera and eBay non-rule rules.  We purchased this camerra off eBay several years ago, at least we thought we did.  After paying for the camera through PayPal and having the purchase accepted by the seller, we were contacted several days later by the seller stating that they had changed their mind (possibly a higher offer from off eBay?) and were refunding our purchase payment.  We objected, stating that once the purchase was complete the item was now ours and we were unwilling to reverse the sale.  The seller did not relent so we contacted eBay.  Their answer was that they could do nothing.  Really?   They could not threaten to drop the seller from eBay if the seller did not follow commercial law and eBay rules?  Really?   When you make a bid on an item eBay immediately informs you that you have entered into a legal contract and must purchase the item if your bid is the highest.  Obviously, they do not enforce this rule when it comes to sellers.  The moral of the story is, don't depend on eBay to protect your rights as a buyer or you may be sorely disappointed.  We believe were the first digital camera history web site to provide a photo and information concerning this camera.
