Could Apple release a dedicated digital camera in the future? Probably not, but designer Cha Hee Lim gives us a firsthand look at what such a device could look like, and it’s called the Apple iCamera. For those who don’t know, the Apple QuickTake digital camera was first launched in 1994 and sold for three years before being discontinued in 1997. A total of three models were offered, including the 100 / 150, which were actually built by Kodak, and then the 200, manufactured by Fujifilm.

Think of the Apple iCamera as a cross between a digital camera and smartphone, but without calling capabilities. To zoom, there’s an iPod-inspired revolving wheel that can be adjusted with your finger. Plus, all of your photos are automatically synced with iCloud when connected to WiFi.

On a related note, did you know that despite selling well in the education and small business markets, Apple still had to discontinue the QuickTake, as other companies, particularly Kodak, Fujifilm, Canon, and Nikon, started making digital cameras. This was also around the time that Steve Jobs returned to Apple, and to streamline operations, he discontinued many non-computer products.
