Douglas Wyman writes, "At the Las Vegas 90 Fall COMDEX I saw a prototype digital camera which used EEROM cards instead of still-video floppies to record images. The image was digitized in color and stored on the card which could then be read out by a display device. The obvious (and visibly apparent) benefit was the stability of the output image which did not shudder and shake when being displayed. I too have examined the still-video devices such as the Canon cameras and do not accept the digital – analog – digital approach that their use requires. The rotating analog playback mechanisms introduce too much shake to the image and require mechanical movement for something that could be all-digital and all-electronic. I hope some other vendor is able to move ahead with that technology before still-video gets a firm hold on the consumer’s attention."
