Argus DC100 (1999)

The Argus DC100 internet camera. Another Minton clone. The camera, I believe, was marketed in 1999. There are no sources whatsoever that can tell the exact release date. Actually, there is nothing on the internet at all beside some user testimonies claiming to have bought this camera in 1999. No specs are available and to add to this misfortune Argus officially stated that there was a mixup during production and some DC2000 models were accidentally labeled DC100. The manufacturer actually used these exact words to advertise one of the worst cameras ever to appear on the market: "Night scene for breathtaking night shots" and "Highest quality, lowest price".... go figure!
