Quick review of Hitachi MP EG1A
In general the Hitachi MP-EG1A was the first MPEG1 comaptible camera back in 1997, when I bought it in Tokyo. Although very clumsy and 500 g "heavy" it was very handy to transfer movies and pics from the camera to laptop just by flipping the 260 MB (max. 20min MPEG1 320x200 video) from the camera to a PCMCIA II / PC card slot. Remember, USB was not even invented 10 years ago.
