In 1987, Konica joined the short-lived still video camera movement by announcing the Konica KC-400. Following this in 1988, Konica announced a lower-cost model, the KC-100. As with the other electronic cameras of this era, it was not digital; instead, images were stored in the form of analog scan lines onto special 2" video floppy disks. The odd design was intended to be gripped horizontally with a downward tilt. A fixed focus 11.5 mm lens gave a 35mm equivalent coverage of 60 mm.

It's unclear if the KC-100 was actually released, or if the similar Konica KC-300 was the production model. The still-video concept would soon be obsolete, with the introduction of true digital cameras such as the Fujix DS-1P and Logitech Fotoman.
