JVC GC-A50 Digital Camera
A stylish compact camera from 2003, the JVC GC-A50 with a huge 1.3 megapixel sensor, 5PCS glass lens, optical viewfinder and it even comes with a stand so you can use it as a webcam. It takes one AA battery, has 8mb of built in memory and on the back an LCD screen showing you the mode and remaining shots. A bit like film, you have to wait before you get to see the photos and the camera has just three buttons, one shutter button, one power button and one menu button.

On the side is the USB socket and battery cover. The camera seems to be partially made of metal with the front of the camera feeling like it’s constructed with stylish silver metal, and the camera comes in a rather stylish black box, which is much more stylish than what many cameras now come in. It’s a shame that JVC don’t make small stylish digital cameras anymore, as anything unique in the market is generally welcomed with open arms. If you are keen, then you sometimes find them on ebay for around £5, but it’s pretty rare. Click more below for more pictures.
