Hi Noah.
 Communication with a camera was an exclusive functionality of the Newton
at the time.  Really cool stuff.  There is an article explaining how it was
used to send pictures from a expedition in the Himalayas via satellite.

  In case you haven't seen them,  I made a couple of extensions to Tibet:
Tibet 115200.pkg.   Increases the comms speed significantly.
Robopicture.pkg.   Takes pictures from the Newton,  and you can program
intervals, if I remember correctly.
They're available here:  http://dev.newtontalk.net/dpadilla/progs.htm
