    The first Sony Mavica stored to floppy disk, I had one and used to carry around a box of 10 disks. Smile

    In the days before digital camera manufacturers sorted out USB connections it made it easy to get photos onto the PC. Smile

    For film cameras I'd include the vintage Compass, made back in the 40s, this looked more gadgety than the most gadgety cameras we have to day.

    .

    In those days I used a Jessops 'Flash Path' floppy disk adapter for my Smart Cards. The Smart card was inserted into the adapter, was was the size and shape of a floppy disc. The adapter was then inserted into the floppy disc drive which then read the card. The driver software came with it.

    Back in the time when Robert Scott was the editor of Practical Photography (1978ish?) the magazine featured a review of a Sony Mavica prototype camera which utilised a magnetic coated disc - long before we had PCs.

    The images were very poor and not very many could be stored on the disc.

    I remember thinking that I would like one when the system became viable.

    As it happens when I saw a Sony Mavica floppy disc version (c1999) I chose a Toshiba Compact instead which took Smart Cards. The Mavica was too expensive at the time anyway.

    I thought that the Purma Plus was a queer beast. As I recall it changed shutter speed according to whether you held it portrait or landscape orientated
