The Casio QV-10 was the worlds first consumer LCD digital camera. The Casio QV series camera's originally shipped with built in flash memory to store images with a special data cable to transfer to a personal computer while using the QV-Link software.
QV Series cameras would capture images in a proprietary .CAM format. The CAM format appears to have different encodings, one being a JPEG format.
CAM files have the header hex values "
07204D4D" followed by 3 bytes
000300 Then a single byte which appears to indicate encoding
04 for JPEG encoding,
01 for something else. More research needed.
JPEG encoded images can simply be extracted by deleting the first 54 bytes of the file and saving with .JPG extension.
