Casio QV-10, the first consumer LCD digital camera, lauded as ‘essential’ to tech history

You might not be familiar with Casio’s QV-10, but it was a revolutionary product back in 1995 — the world’s first consumer-grade digital camera to come with an LCD for previewing and viewing images. Now, to recognize the contribution the QV-10 made to the rise in popularity of digital photography, Japan’s National Museum of Nature and Science has given it the status of “Essential Historical Material for Science and Technology.” It’s the third Casio product to receive the accreditation after the Mini electronic calculator and the prototype DC-90 digital camera.
