Quark Probe99 (1998)

There is absolutely nothing to say about this Minton clone. I can only assume by the resoIution of this model that it came out in 1998. There are several indicators here, for once the resolution and the serial connectivity and secondly the supplied software is dated 1998. I don't even know the company 'Quark Opto Electronics Inc.'. All I can say is that websites tend to mistake this camera as the Minton Probe99 or Argus Quark Probe99. This is of course completely wrong. As you have learned from the OEM page here, Minton called their own models S-cam F1 and S-cam F4. There is no Minton Probe99 and never was.
