Nic Boyde's Information on Minidiscs and other Japanese Electronics.
Manufacturer's Recommended Sale Price JPY84,800
Olympus top-end point and shoot model. Uses both SmartMedia flash cards
and an RS232C port to communicate with PCs. The PC kit requires the PC
to have 80486 CPU minimum, Windows95 or Windows NT, 16Mb/24Mb of RAM.
The software in the PC Kit includes Kai's PhotoSoap and is in Japanese
but works 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 use your own software to manipulate the JPG file produced. This is
the way I do it.
