Abstract

A compact photo-imaging and print-out device is configured in th form of a quasi toy camera capable of being operated by a child and is exclusive of image storage memory and any attendant supervisory microprocessor. Instead, the electronic response of an image capture ccd array is coupled directly to a print-out unit, either 'as is' or via a selectively inserted gradient circuit. In the former instance, a captured image is printed out by the printer in accordance with its grey scale content; in the latter instance, the printer will generate an outline or line drawing of the captured image based upon prescribed differences in contrast of the captured image.
