AbstractThe picture signal picked up by a MOS sensor 2a in the camera 2 is supplied to the storage medium body 3, converted to image data by the A/D converter 4, then digitally processed by the image processor 5 to be still image data or compressed image data composed of R, G and B image signals for example, and then written into the RAM 7. Write of the image data to the RAM 7 is made by access to the RAM 7 according to the directory structure in the ROM 6 and RAM 7. Access to the ROM 6 and RAM 7 is controlled by the controller 8. The card-type semiconductor storage medium 1 with the camera is connected to a personal computer for example via the interface 9.
