Olympus C-800L (1996)

The C-800L was the third digital camera and the first one to sport the CAMEDIA brand name. It was introduced together with the C-400 and C-400L on 1996-09-05. The US model name was D-300L. The C-800L was the top of the line in 1996 and had an incredible 6MB of internal memory, TTL autofocus system, optical and LCD viewfinder and automatic playback of recorded images. For Olympus it was important that these cameras looked exactly like 35mm cameras and thus gave the user a familiar experience.
