Fujix DS-H1 prototype (1991)

In 1991 Fuji showed their second prototype to the world at the Photokina 1990. It was a predecessor of the later marketed Fujix DS-100. Having listened to customer experiences with the DS-X, Fuji went on and produced this prototype. It had a larger LCD status display, 3x optical zoom, auto focussing and an external memory card slot.

Interestingly enough, the DS-H1 was shown alongside some heavy equipment. Spectators could have a glance at the Fujix IP-H1 Digital Image Processor, the Fujix DP-HI Memory Card Player and a very interesting Fujix IT-H1 Digital Image Transmitter. Therefore the DS-H1 was among one of the very first digital cameras that could transmit images by using a transmitter.

Again I raise the question, so many visitors and no one took pictures?
