Among its products was one of the few compact cameras for type No. 110 film cartridges with automatic motorized film advance.

In the year 2000 it acquired Pretec, another maker of digital still cameras. It became the largest maker of digital cameras in Taiwan. It made some of the budget digicams of big brands like Rollei, Pentax and Ricoh as well as some of the cameras of the brand Traveler which is marketed by Germany's largest food retail chain Aldi.
