1988, Canon Xapshot electronic still camera...
In reply to DHedgehog, Sep 3, 2013

I say "electronic still camera" because the Xapshot recorded single frames of analog video on a proprietary floppy disk.

To get the image into the computer you connected a video cable from the camera into a video digitizer that was attached to the computer...and not just any computer, the Amiga by Commodore...PCs and Macs in those days were just too inferior to do the job.
