Epson PhotoPC 650 (1999)

The Epson PhotoPC 650 was aimed at beginners and was shown at Comdex Fall 1999. The fixed focus lens had a 37mm thread for filters and optional lenses. The camera sported both a serial and USB interface and was shipped with an 8MB compact flash card. This model, like the PhotoPC 550, was not marketed in Japan. The camera was a simple point-and-shoot entry level camera with just the basic features one needed to start taking digital pictures. The camera had an interal 4MB DRAM buffer for storing pictures between shooting and the images were processed by a chip called 'Raptor' from Sierra Imaging. The CPU inside was a Fujitsu SPARClite processor. There were also bundles available that included a Stylus printer.
