AbstractA photographic camera records photographic information and/or development information in an IC card which includes a semiconductor memory capable of reading-out/writing-in, a circuit having a microcomputer and adapted for communication with peripherals and a data communication terminal for the communication. This photographic camera has an attaching portion for attaching the IC card, a data exchange terminal, a microcomputer-incorporated communication device for the data exchange with the IC card and a camera control device for carrying out various operations based on the data input from the IC card. Through the data exchange between the microcomputer of the camera and the microcomputer of the IC card, the photographic information and/or the development information corresponding to an exposed film is recorded in the IC card. Those data and other information are accessible at any time and any place.
