Samsung SSC-350N (1996)

Camera made by Fuji and licensed to Apple and Samsung. Apple (Quick Take 200) and Fuji (DS-7/DS-8) marketed this camera, Samsung didn't (why not?). It only took 2MB 5V Smart Media cards. Also, the Quick Take 200 was marketed with a clip-on viewfinder in the box but the Fuji wasn't (but it would also fit the DS-7/DS-8). This could have been Samsung's first entry in the digital camera market. Although they already had a very peculiar digital camera design in development (the SSC-410N), they somehow failed to market anything before 1997. I claim the SSC-350N was never marketed as the only picture available is this promo shot from 1996 by Samsung.

Now, 18 years after this promo shot has circled the web, the korean National Science Museum has released new picture material of the camera. Which proves that the camera exists. Unfortunately I cannot read korean, so I do not know if the camera was actually marketed. Maybe someone can help me out?
