I found two programs (with source code) that can download pictures from  
the Fuji DS-7 - which is pretty much the same camera as the QuickTake 200.



So if anyone wants to try writing a Newton version, it should be doable,  
but I don't see any description of the actual format (JPEG?). 66000 bytes  
is a bit low for a 640 by 480 picture, but the manual says it's possible  
to fit 20 high-quality pictures or 30 regular-quality pictures on a 2 MB  
card, and (2 * 1024 * 1024) / 66000 = 31.7750, so I guess it's correct at  
least for one type.

I have a QuickTake 200 but not a working SmartMedia card, and as far as I  
know, the camera won't connect to a computer without a card (at least  
Apple's Camera Access software wouldn't do anything if I remember
