Konica Q-EZ (1996)

In 1996, the Konica Q-EZ was the world's first digital camera to support Intel's Flash Miniature Card (see memory card page). The camera was a very bulky chunk of hard plastic. It had 640x480 pixel resolution and a serial interface. Despite it's bulkiness the camera had no TFT screen to preview images nor a possibility to connect one. Instead it had an info LCD screen. The Konica Q-EZ had a clear silver body and dark grey buttons on the back. Apparently the Konica also came with a PCMCIA miniature card adapter (MC-AD1). If you have a picture of that one I would want to post it here. The Konica Q-EZ was re-issued one year later in 1997 as the HP Photosmart digital camera.
