Apple QuickTake 150

Introduced: May 1995
Terminated: 1996


The Apple QuickTake 150 offered several upgrades over the previous model.  A major improvement was the different image formats available: TIFF, BMP, PCX, JPEG, and Quicktake.  The other major difference was the ability to work with Microsoft Windows via a connection kit.


While the increased options for image formats and the ability to transfer images to a PC were noteworthy improvements, the Apple QuickTake 150 still did not attract much attention from consumers.
