PHILIPS ESP40 - 1998.  The above camera was shown during COMDEX '98 in Tokyo Japan, April 6-9.  It clearly says ESP40 on the camera even though the plackard says ESP50.  It was a working camera and appears to be exactly the same as the ESP50 shown in the U.S. in June of '98 at the PC Expo in New York (see below) except for the color and the letters ESP40.  The material in the PC Watch article also refers to it as an ESP50.  The article states that it had an optical viewfinder and stored images on Smart Media flash card.  It may be that the producltion model which was silver and had only the words "Digital Camera" on the front was not yet ready and Philips chose to display a prototype rather than have no camera at all at the Japanese COMDEX.
