Epson PhotoPC 700 (1998)

The Epson PhotoPC 700 was Epson's first megapixel digital camera and a follow-up of the PhotoPC 600 but black instead of silver (to make it more confusing, Epson Japan marketed this camera as the Epson Colorio CP-600). Apart from the higher resolution it had some new features like continuous shooting mode, panorama mode, quick delete, B/W recording, 2x digital zoom and a snap-on lens adapter for using optional lenses (made by Tiffen). The rumours floating around the internet of a silver-coloured PhotoPC 700 are not true by the way. This happens when people start posting stuff without verifying their sources....
