Tribute to Konica KD-400Z Digital Revio


Konica Digital Revio KD-400z
This is a tribute to my wife's first digital camera, Konica Digital Revio KD-400z.
Bought in 2002, it was then a premium digital camera with a then impressive 4 megapixel and unique dual-memory slot.
The KD-400z is now 8 years of age, during its mid-life, it experienced years of no-use, when it suffered an unknown error which rendered it unoperational.
Today, it is back to life again!
I somehow felt obligated to put it to use again.
