Olympus Deltis VC-1000
The VC-1000 was introduced by Olympus in 1993, replacing their analog still-video VC-100 with a true digital camera. (The name Deltis was also used for Olympus-branded computer media.) The VC-1000 included a 2x zoom, and up to 31 images from its 380,000-pixel sensor could be stored in 2 MB of onboard, solid-state memory. It was soon followed by several costiler VC-1100 models, which included the ability to transfer data via modem—a valued feature for many professional users. But by 1996, Olympus would change emphasis and launch its consumer-oriented Camedia line, with the C-800L.
