The Apple Camera: Apple Quicktake 200
Apple should come out with a camera you say? Well they have. For those of you that don’t remember, here’s the Quicktake 200
The Apple QuickTake (codenamed Venus, Mars, Neptune) is one of the first consumer digital camera lines. It was launched in 1994 by Apple Computer and was marketed for three years before being discontinued in 1997. Three models of the product were built including the 100 and 150, both built by Kodak; and the 200, built by Fujifilm. The QuickTake cameras had a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels maximum (0.3 Mpx). The 100 and 200 models are only officially compatible with the Apple Macintosh, while the 150 model is compatible with both the Apple Macintosh and Microsoft Windows. Because the QuickTake 200 is almost identical to the Fuji DS-7 or to Samsung’s Kenox SSC-350N, Fuji’s software for that camera can be used to gain Windows compatibility for the QuickTake 200. Some other software replacements also exist.
Time Magazine profiled QuickTake as ‘the first consumer digital camera’ and ranked it among its ’100 greatest and most influential gadgets from 1923 to the present’ list.
