Sampo DCE-400 (1999)

Unveiled at Computex Taipei '99. It was Sampo's second digital camera on the market and it won the Taiwan goods seminal Award in 1999. Which totally impresses me because the camera only had a lo-res 0.85MP CCD. It featured both serial and USB connectors which was not that impressive back then and both an LCD and optical viewfinder. It wasn't even the slimmest camera but instead rather bulky.
