Dycam Model 5 (1996)

Another first on this website. Few collectors only know that Dycam had plans to market much more models after the Dycam Model 4XL came out. They intended to produce and maybe market at least seven more models. I do have specs of some of them but no picture material. The only picture material I have is of the Model 5 so I will mention the rest of the lot in another category item. The Model 5 was yet another grayscale camera and intended to offer a higher level of component integration, lower battery consumption and better resolution (comparable to the Model 3 and 4 cameras). A prototype was built and field tested but didn't make it to market. Above you can see the only exisiting photo of this prototype. Read more about Dycam's plans in the next category item.
