ANSCO DZ-400 (Kocom KDC-10) - 1997.  Shown at Comdex Fall ‘97 as Kocom KDC-10 .  1/3-inch 640 x 480 pixel CCD.  Fixed-focus  f/2.8 lens.  Shutter 1/4 to 1/10,000 second. Street price $500. Although a relatively inexpensive point and shoot camera, apparently very few Ansco branded models of this camera were sold in the U.S. as the one purchased was the first I have personally seen on eBay in the past eight years. Moreover, it was new in its original box with manual and all accessories.   http://www.watch.impress.co.jp/pc/docs/article/971125/digi03.htm
