Sharp Electronic Still Video Camera (1981)

After Sony shook the world with their Mavica, Sharp also announced a prototype still video camera shortly after that would store images on magnetic video floppy disks. It had a 0.20MP CCD. Sharp was planning on mass producing the CCD of this camera so they could produce an estimated 20 to 30,000 cameras by June of 1982. Alas, this never happened.
