The first consumer-level “Mavica.” This model, MVC-C1, laid the foundation for how we enjoy digital photography today. Several accessories were available for the camera, including an AC adapter, battery pack, and playback adapter. Promoted as a “still video camera for the digital age,” the “Mavica” offers an auto-strobe, fast consecutive shooting, timer, and other features. An optional kit enables viewing shots on a TV screen.
