Digital hits the shops
The first true digital handheld camera was the Fuji DS-1P, developed in 1988 but never sold. It recorded images as computerised files. These were saved on a 16MB SRAM internal memory card, which was jointly developed withToshiba. That same year, Digital Darkroom became the first image-manipulation program for the Macintosh computer.
Also in 1988, the first JPEG and MPEG standards were set.
The first digital camera to actually go on sale was the 1990 Dycam Model 1 (pictured). A grey version was marketed as the Logitech Fotoman. It used a CCD image sensor, stored pictures digitally, and connected directly to a PC for download.
