Ansco DZ-400 (1997)

KOCOM, a korean manufacturer, created and designed the Kocom KDC-10, which was the basic OEM model. It was first showcased at Comdex Fall '97. KOCOM also made the QV-8000SX and the QV-2000ux for Casio and licensed this model to Haking International. Haking marketed it in the US as the DZ-400. Ansco, rather known for photographic film and 35mm cameras, now had three digital cameras in the market. According to some sources they launched four models, this one here by Kocom, one by Focus Products and two made by Mustek (Haking). All models failed to sell.

The DZ-400 was a regular basic level digital camera with features such as sensitivity control program, a small LCD status screen on top, an optional viewfinder, backlight compensation mode, normal and macro mode shooting, video and computer output, auto white balance and 4x digital zoom.
