Dave Baay is right on. I bought this camera back in November of 96 for $800 and some coin. It was (in my opinion) the best consumer level digital camera at the time.

At the time, it was one of the few 1024x768 camera available for well under $1000. I just upgraded to a Canon G1 which is head and shoulders above the D-300L in performance, features and value ...
