RD-1 Information:
Although Epson, part of watchmaker Seiko, are far better known for printers than cameras, the company had a modicum of success in the early days of consumer digital cameras with the PhotoPC range. The last Epson digital compact (that we’re aware of) was the L-500V in 2004. In 2004 Epson launched the world’s first digital rangefinder camera based around a Cosina film model with Leica M mount. Still in production today, the R-D1x is only sold in Japan.
Epson’s long discontinued PhotoPC line of compact digital cameras consisted of just 14 models released between 1997 and 2004.
