Setting up and trying out Sega's ONLY digital camera: the Digio SJ-1 from 1996! Meant for use with things like the Sega Picture Magic, PriFun, and NEC PC-9821 computers, the Digio is one fascinating piece of 90s retro tech.

  • I remember the PriFun and wanting it so bad unfortunately never got it. Didn't have money at the time. It was clearance priced too. Damn! Seeing it in a Funcoland magazine back cover advertisement. I remember reading the description , and thinking the machine was so ahead of its time.

    • @dtz1000 i meant similar. Btw imma tell you that there are 2006 nokias that have more interesting designs than the new smartphones. Example: nokia n93, has a rotating screen

      name namename name3 miesięcy temu
    • @name name Dont think so. Most Nokias I've seen from 2006 had at least a VGA camera, which is 4 times the resolution of this crappy Sega camera. I've even seen Nokias from that time with 26 times higher resolution than this camera when i made a quick look.

  • In a parallel universe, Sega acquires Olympus and released its first APS-C DSLR in 2007, then a full frame with a wide OM lens compatibility since 2009, competing against Nikon/Sony, since they could not compete against Nintendo-SGI's workstation market that crashed Apple. 8:08 oooooooooooooooo I like the grain/vibe of retro cameras, in the digital kind, not film, I should shoot more with my Cyber-Shot. going back to basics, hard mode, no rafale mode.

  • Seeing as you like early digital cameras, I have a mid-2000s Polaroid PDC 2000 digital camera. I bought it in preparation for a trip to NYC in 2004. I only used during that trip and then I forgot all about it. It is 2million mp, has a digital-only zoom and it uses the smart media card. If you are interested let me know.

  • Ooh, I remember the SmartMedia flash memory cards. My dad bought an Olympus CAMEDIA C-860L back in the day, which thoroughly blew my mind. It had a freakin' LCD on the back, so you could instantly see your photos, which was just impressive to no end. I think he bought it for a vacation on the Canary Islands, and I remember being more occupied with the camera than anything else.

  • @LGR The streaks of light are indicative of using a CCD image sensor. From "When one pixel gets oversaturated with light, its excessive charge spills down the chip and fouls up all the readings for its row. This characteristic of the CCD explains the vertical streaks of light you see when pointing your camcorder at a small, bright object." Keep up the great work!

  • I just took one of those apart and I can tell you, it's the biggest, most unserviceable pile of shit I've ever dealt with. Hidden screws (even under the black camera lens protector plastic). Some stuff is glued. A ton of screws and clips on top of it all, and then everything is surrounded by metal foil shielding.

  • Awful quality and price compared to APS which was VERY popular in Europe and Japan which is probably why Sega did not bother and the fact that every store back then had a machine that you could load your APS films into and have them converted in 5 minutes, some machines even let you edit the pictures before you printed them, and some machines let you do big prints. Europe and Japan were pretty much APS and DV camcorders for majority of consumers, my family were lower middle class and had no less than one miniDV camera, 7 freaking APS cameras!

Dude you made a great job with it. They sent you a single freaking floppy? Oh they bastards. Keep it up. From Russa with SEGA
