OT Casio VS-101 1987 digital-Ish(analog) camera

Any Idea how much this old digital-Ish(analog MOS (metal oxide semiconductor 280K pixel CCD.) camera is worth . The photos are stored on special floppy discs. I see the floppies selling for 20$ a pop

I saw one at the local thrift store brand new in the box

according to one site it's Museum piece

but for me it means $$$$ in my pocket

There is a used unit listed on Fleabay currently for $2000. If a used one would actually sell for $2k, then MIB never used should be worth twice that, especially if the unit is in original shrink wrap.

The listing says this originally sold for $1500.

Buckle Up. It makes it harder for the aliens to suck you out of your car.

Oh jeeze that sounds like the original Mavica cameras, which wrote to VFDs (Video Floppy Disks)

They actually contain, if I remember right, frames of analog video for each individual picture!

Very interesting technology, but yeah only something a collector is likely to want.

Yes a collector will have to pay a premium price for it.

Well, does your car at least turn into something else? Sometimes I turn it into a trashcan. Hmm...
