I had never heard of this particular camera until I Googled it:
OLYMPUS DELTIS VC-1100 - 1994. The VC-1100 was the world's first digital camera with built-in transmission capabilities. Photojournalists and other photographers could connect a modem to the VC-1100 and upload digital photos over cellular and analog phone lines. The camera, which had a built-in zoom lens and an image-capture resolution of 768 by 576 pixels, stored images on PCMCIA cards. Its color LCD viewfinder let you preview photos on location. Shutter 1/8 to 1/1000 second. Lens 54mm and 108mm. The VC-1100's transmitter enabled pictures to be sent over phone lines or a cellular network to a second camera or personal computer. The Deltis transmitted at the rate of one frame every one to six minutes, depending on the picture quality required. The 21-ounce camera, a battery pack, and memory card cost about $4000. The VC-1000 did not have transmission capability and was around $300 cheaper.
