Sampo DCE-211 (1997)

Sampo Corporation introduced this digital camera to the market in 1997. It was their first digital camera and showcased at Computex Taipei '97. I have never seen another OEM model so it is hard to tell who manucfactured this particular digital camera. To my knowledge they only marketed three different digital cameras in total. Please note the more then interesting jog dial for aperture settings. Actually there seem to have been two different versions. Please took a look at the pictures. I believe that the website marketing picture was never sold but instead the light grey version you can see in the pictures.

Thanks to Andrew for the pictures!
