PRINT CLUB PHOTO BOOTHS - 1995.  First developed by Atlus and Sega. Sasaki Miho (photo at right) came up with the Print Club concept in 1994. She based her idea on her school days' experiences of putting cute stickers of Japanese characters on her notebooks. Print Club refers to the photo booths where postage stamp-sized photos are produced . Most of the pictures are printed out as stickers and used to liven up cell phones, notebooks , anything that will take a sticker. See the web site below for the complete Print Club story.

A TALE OF TWO CAMERAS.  I purchased what was advertised as a Canon Sure Shot 60 Zoom on Ebay for a total cost of $11. When the item arrived I found that the box and manual were for the 60 Zoom of 1995, but the camera inside was the Canon New Sure Shot of 1983. When notified of the error, the seller, powell916, kindly let me keep everything and gave a full refund. However, this was not the end of the story. Being a collector, I didn't get off Scot free. I had a mint 60 Zoom box on my hands as well as a nice manual, so I did the only thing a real collector could do, I went back to eBay and purchased a 60 Zoom to go with the box and manual and a manual for the New Sure Shot at a total cost of $48! The 60 Zoom sold for $80 in 1995 which would be about $114 in 2010 dollars. The New Sure Shot would be about the same, so for $48 I have two mint cameras, one mint box, one mint manual, and one excellent manual. By the way, I know that the 60 Zoom sold for for exactly $79.88 (probably less than the MSRP) because the Walmart sales receipt was still attached to the manual.

 


CASIO QV-10 - 1995.  First consumer digital camera with a pivoting lens and first with an LCD along with a viewfinder.  1/5-inch 460 x 280 pixel CCD.  All output from the camera was converted to 320 by 240 pixels (or interpolated up to 640 by 480 pixels).  The camera's semiconductor memory held up to 96 color still images; had a fixed focal length lens with macro positioning; high-speed shutter (1/8 to 1/4000 second); and automatic exposure.  Other features included: video output port for output of images to a TV, VCR or video printer; a multi-screen viewing function for viewing 4 or 9 images on a single screen; auto-playback for visual presentations; self timer; and a memory protect function to guard against accidental deletion. MSRP $1,000 ($1,400 in 2009 dollars) . Markings on Casios can be confusing. Some may say QV-10 on the front, but on the bottom may say QV-10 or QV-10B, possibly indicating a different marketing area or some minor change to the camera.
