Sony Mavica (1981)

A lot is said about this camera that I do not need to repeat here. One thing I noticed lately was that there were several of these prototypes built. You can see three pictures here of the Mavica prototype, all showing different versions. Please notice the difference in body design, especially the MAVICA logo. Still, all of them were prototypes and not marketed.
