dycam adc agricultural digital camera for multi-band photography 1995 dycam adc digital camera sample photo 1995
DYCAM Agricultural Digital Camera (ADC)  - 1995.  The ADC was a portable digital camera specifically tailored for multi-band photography in the visible red and near-infrared.  The camera and software allowed calibration for the ambient conditions and applied the calibration value to all images made under the calibrated conditions.  The 24-bit color image from the camera was evaluated by the host software as one of the three supported vegetation indexes (VI). The processed VI image directly represented the result of the index equation used on a pixel-by-pixel basis.  The resulting 8-bit image could be palletized, saved and exported for use with other software. The purpose of the images was to evaluate the condition of crops, especially as to lack of or excessive ground moisture. Similar, but much more advanced systems are still used today.

Designed as a desktop camera, aiming and focusing was accomplished using the software. There were many uses for this type of camera, from taking photos for portfolios to setting up a low-cost desktop surveillance system. It could even be taken outside and hooked up to a laptop and tripod for outdoor shots. MSRP $199.

NOTE:  We previously had this item posted on our 1993 page, but Carsten Wolf of Germany corrected us.   Since it was  on sale in 1996, it was obviously designed before then so we have now listed it  on  this page.   Carsten tells us that we have so many other errors on our site it would take us a year to correct them all if he provided the list to us.  He has sent us eight lengthy emails in less than a month listing his complaints with our site such as, "An inaccurate and incomplete compilation of random images and text snippets for college kids! Certainly not a good source for a serious collector..."  We are anxiously looking forward to Carsten's additional corrections even though they are so many they will take us all year to post among the 460 or so digicams we have pictured on our site.

toshiba solid state floppy disk card, smart media 1995

TOSHIBA SOLID-STATE FLOPPY DISK CARD (SMART MEDIA) - 1995.   The Solid-state Floppy-Disk Card (SSFDC) now called Smart Media, was one of the earliest. It was introduced by Toshiba in 1995 when it was referred to as the Solid State Floppy Disk Card. It is manufactured by a number of companies, some samples of which are shown above. The key difference between a SmartMedia card and a CompactFlash card is that the controller chip is in the camera rather than in the card.   Digital Photography Answers, Dave Johnson, 1999, p278.
