Hello Spyros and Lewis Collard,

I think he has been reading what''s said around here (that could be the origin of this mistake):$canon_v20

Where you can find this at the "Varios" paragraph:"Pero en donde destaca es en la interfaz para una cámara digital (uno de los puntos fuertes de Canon) que permite capturar imágenes e incluso vídeo".

It means: "where it stands out is on the interface for a digital camera (one of the Canon strengths) which lets to capture pictures and even video".

It is not true that this computer -or any other computer- could download pictures from the T90 camera. It was a film-only camera, so in order to get any picture from it into a computer, you would have to digitize it first, using a scanner. What the Data Memory Back actually did was to store shot variables (eg. exposure, viewfinder) and perhaps to imprint them on the photo film in the form of red numbers, like many cameras did at the time.

I had sent in a correction by email, but I''m sure the Internet ate it, so here goes. The summary reads:

$it was able to receive photos from the T90 Canon camera with the Data Memory Back T90 expansion $...$ and download pictures, as you can do now with a digital camera!

The Data Memory Back was entirely unlike a digital camera$ it recorded shooting data like time, shutter speed, aperture, metering mode, etc, but no image as such. It does an entirely different job to a digital back with an imaging sensor.
