Konica followed the 1988 announcement of the KC-100 with a production model, the KC-300 (also offering a black version, the KC-300B). As with the other still-video 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.
The KC-300 used a 1/2"-format CCD sensor of approximately 300,000 pixels, and had a 12 mm f/2.8 fixed focus lens usable from 1½ feet to infinity. Sold in Japan only, the price of the KC-300 equated to about USD $675.
