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 I 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.   We believe wewere the first digital camera history web site to provide a photo and information concerning this camera.

philoippe kahn, inventor of the camera phone 1997    sharp j-sh04 first camera phone 1997

CAMERA PHONE- 1997.  The first complete camera phone was built by Philippe Kahn in 1997. The first commercial camera phone complete with infrastructure was the J-SH04, made by Sharp Corporation with the Sha-Mail (Picture-Mail in Japanese) infrastructure and marketed by J-Phone in Japan , designed in collaboration with Philippe Kahn. The first sales were in 1999 in Japan . Kahn integrated a miniature camera into a Motorola cell phone and, as his wife Sonia Lee Kahn was in labor, broadcast pictures of the newborn baby around the world. The camera phone became the founding vision for LightSurf Technologies. In Japan the first camera phones were developed for working professionals who wanted to keep an image of their children with them wherever they went and as they worked. Photo on the left is Kahn working on the first camera phone. Middle pohto is of Kahn's newborn baby.  Photo on the right is the Sharp J-SH04 camera phone.
