I found this at a local charity shop. I went home and researched it, with some difficulty and couldn't find anything about it.
I went back to the shop and found that it was on sale for a low price so I bought it, knowing that it probably was not in working condition.
It has a 43mm lens takes 3 AA cells and has a 2mb Compact Flash card. It is quite clean and actually has a (very small) rear screen that can be moved to about 30 degrees angle.
Putting three batteries in it, the pilot light comes on and a previously taken picture flashes up on the rear screen for about a second. Then goes dead.
It is an interesting design because you can see the start of the development of an early digital camera. Canon obviously trying to be a bit different, yet a few years later the compact cam reverted to a conventional shape.
I just wondered if it was rare enough to appeal to a collector of early digital cameras and what it might be worth as a 'museum' piece?

I have not been on here for a few days. I went on holiday then came back and found that my computer had failed. Bought a new one and and been setting up some of the things that I had lost. (Why is it all so difficult.) Luckily most of my photos had been backed up and I keep most of the best ones on discs and memory sticks. I also found that a lens that I had sold to Vietnam on ebay has gone missing (the buyer wanted it sent as cheaply as possible, untracked, non signed for - what did he expect!) And the Canon Powershot had been sold to a collector in Norway. Hope it arrives!
