Nic Boyde's Information on Minidiscs and other Japanese Electronics.
Manufacturer's Recommended Sale Price JPY99,800
Olympus next-best model. High resolution, and a good long lens. Like
all the Olympus', uses both SmartMedia flash cards and an RS232C port
to communicate with PCs.
The software in the PC Kit includes Kai's PhotoSoap and is in Japanese
but functions on English Windows - you just have to guess how it works.
The usual Windows shortcut keys work - e.g. Alt-F A gives you Save As...
For pure convenience the Fujifilm FDA-1 - (flashcard
adaptor) allows the flashcard to be read as if it were a floppy disk
and then you use your own software to manipulate the JPG file produced.
This is the way I do it.
