Apple produced one of the first consumer digital cameras, the Quicktake, in 1994. The camera cost US$750 and used internal memory to hold 8 images of less than
one megapixel (.4 megapixels). Today, any smartphone would capture better pictures, but the Quicktake was similar to other digital cameras available at that time. 
For me, the QuickTake was my introduction to digital photography. I took hundreds of photos of my family and developed my interest in panoramic photography and QuicktimeVR using the QuickTake and a special tripod head for panoramic imagery produced by Kaidan.  I had two QuickTake cameras, the 100 and 150 (I still have both in 2024 although I have not used either for many years since they require an Apple Desktop Bus cable and a computer with an ADB port. The last Macintosh with an ADB port was the PowerMac G3, produced in 1999.
