Epson Digital Camera

Does anyone have any experience with this Epson PhotoPC 550 digital camera ?
It's 20 years old, takes 3 AA batteries, and uses a Smart Media Memory card.

Its probably only 1/3 of a megapixel. Early digicams were really only suitable for photos to be displayed on screens

It is .3 megapixels. I've tried it with a 8MB smart media card.
The pics aren't looking very good on my computer screen.
It's not a camcorder, but has a voice button to add voice to pics.
The camera is in excellent condition. Any idea what it might be worth?
I didn't see any for sale or in sold listings on Ebay.

You'd probably have to pay someone to take it off your hands, LOL...

That's the second generation photo PC. The first has built-in memory and you have to download it with the funky serial cable. I agree with the estimate of having to pay someone for taking off your hands right now. However in 20 years, you never know.

I've got the first generation still downstairs somewhere. It was fun way back when when 640 x 480 of color was a lot!

I kept mine hoping that absent would have a trade-in on the additional rangefinder. Never happened. Now I keep it for memories. One of my favorite pictures of my sub one-year-old son was taken with the camera. It's him playing with an old HP 99/4a and one of those squishy balls that looks like a chemical molecule in one of his onesies with a big smile. The little pocket sized HP that random ass as well as being a Calculator look like a laptop to him. Now he's 21 and 6 foot something.

My first digital was a Casio QV10, first digital with live view.
I printed a few, they were the size of postage stamps.

Oh boy! I remember that I have shot in that VGA-mode with my Kodak DC 240i when I spent a whole day at the EXPO 2000 in Hanover. The camera was capable of more, but the CF cards were so darn expensive!
