Apple Quicktake 150 disk image anywhere?

This is a repeat of a 7-year-old topic, but I find myself in front of
a CD full of Quicktake photos and no software. One of the strange
things about the Apple Quicktake 150 was that it compressed its images
with a special codec that was only available if you loaded the
software that came with the camera. Once you loaded that software,
any Mac app could view and manipulate the image, but you had to have
the right little tidbit from the disk to do _anything_ with the
The "problem" is that there was other, non-Apple, software on the
disks for image manipulation, and according to the Apple ancient
download page, the Quicktake disks are unavailable for download from
them due to "licensing restrictions" (and there's a specific note from
Apple in their info archives that there is no OS X software to handle
Quicktake photos, so I'll be using some emulator, but that's an easy
problem to solve).
I can use ImageConvert or any other tool to process what I have once I
have the camera software, but I don't happen to have those disks on
hand (the camera was borrowed, 12 years ago). Does anyone happen to
have image files of those floppies?
Please respond off-list if you can help.
