HasselBlad Dixel 2000
The Dixel 2000 is a 35mm film scanner and transmitter, with a fully built in image manipulation suite that predates photoshop applications by some years.
Now superceded by software packages that can be loaded onto any compatible PC, this would have been purchased by The likes of Globe magazine for paparazzi use, in its solid metal, padded carrying case, which could hold all cables & power adapters.
The machine could then edit photos anywhere, the pictures transmitted back to the office via telephone. The unit could also be attached to a Image Basket & Tuner 80286 rack PC 35mm Scanner, using SCSI DOS. One unit is for images, the other for editing.
