LCDs for previewing and viewing photos on a camera are a fairly ancient invention at this point, but they were a revolutionary invention back in 1995.
That was when Casio launched the QV-10, the first ever photo camera to bear such a panel.
The screen was of 250 kilopixels and contributed to the price of ¥65,000 upon its release, the equivalent of $833 / 637 Euro.
It is this camera that has been acknowledged by Japan's National Museum of Nature and Science. The institution named it "Essential Historical Material for Science and Technology." Long story short
, QV-10 is getting recognition for essentially changing the face of the market. It is the main cause of the shape of the camera segment today, where the word “camera” automatically makes one think of digital camera, not film camera.
