Toshiba Corp. and Fuji Photo Film Co. said today that they will jointly develop a new type of electronic camera that can show photos on TV monitors immediately after the picture is taken without processing.
A similar camera was introduced by Sony Corp. last year, but the Toshiba-Fuji system is aimed at recording images as digital signals, enabling easy transmission of pictures using personal computers and telephone lines.
Digital electronic signals will be stored on a floppy disc inside the camera. Because it is recorded digitally, pictures can be stored in personal computers, Iijima said.
The camera will be too costly for broad commercialization.
