The electronic still camera was a device that could take still images and store them on a floppy disk. It allowed users to connect the camera to a TV and easily view the pictures. Unlike digital cameras today, this camera stored the photos in an analog rather than digital format. For this reason, it was not possible to directly download the pictures to a PC, and download was only possible through the use of special capture boards or hardware. Unfortunately, since video cameras that enabled the recording of moving images and sound were already becoming popular at that time, and coupled with the fact that this camera could only take still images with quality inferior to that of regular photographs, there was not a great demand for the electronic camera and it did not remain on the market long. However, the technology in this product continued to evolve, eventually leading to the creation of the QV-10 digital camera.
