How exciting to have added this wonderful camera to my collection, thanks to a careful owner in the United States who kindly sold it to me. It's in pristine condition and is complete and unused. I show here a large selection of photos, so you can see every aspect of this very photogenic camera.
The El-C90 was the first Pentax digital camera and came out in 1997. Having a detachable LCD monitor unit, It does have some resemblance to my Ricoh RDC-2 (see the comparative photo). In the photos, you can also see the special detachable covers that the photographer removes so the camera and monitor can be paired.
With features such as these, the Pentax is one step up in performance, manufacturing quality and appearance from the Ricoh. It's an absolutely beautiful thing.
What are its specs? The sensor is 0.41 megapixel and 1/4". The LCD monitor is 2", the internal storage is 2mb and the external (removable) storage is PC Card. That's a lot of camera for US$1,000 in 1997.
