It's batteries were 16 nickel cadmium batteries, it also had an analog/digital converter, a portable digital cassette recorder, and several dozen circuits; although it did look a lot different then a digital camera would look like now, although the quality wasn't amazing with its 100 pixel by 100 pixel black and white image, it did shape the path for the creation of the digital camera until it reached the point that it has today.
