Sanyo VPC-X350 (1998)

The Sanyo VPC-X350 was announced and unveiled at Comdex Fall '98 show on 1998-11-16 to be precise. It had a sturdy aluminum-alloy body and could process images as fast as 1.5 seconds. Some other nice features were sequential recording of up to 40 pictures in a row, Picture-In-Picture onboard editing and a "puzzle game".

While most digital cameras back then contained up to three on-board chips, Sanyo leveraged its proprietary Super One Chip LSI high-speed image-processing chip to reduce the number of chips to one, thereby slashing the form factor of the VPC-X350 by more than 30-percent.
