Re: Kodak Digital Science SCS 2000

According to an earlier reply by former Kodak Professional product manager Jay Kelbley: "The SCS 2000 was like a 720x on steroids, with a ton of sexy gaskets... I don't believe that they were ever sold through "normal" channels..." Source: http://www.nikonweb.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=24 I knew thi...

Kodak Digital Science SCS 2000

Not much is known about the Kodak Digital Science SCS 2000. Sometimes it was called a military version of the dcs 720x with better weather sealing (it is not) or a version for government use (who knows?). In this thread the SCS 2000 was mentioned as prototype for the DCS 720X (this seems to be true)...

The result of the auction of the initially mentioned E2s: 1139 USD. For those, who read this thread later and cannot find the auction listing: The E2s was described as "in full working order and great cosmetic shape". The complete (or more than complete) accessory was included (2 batteries, 6 memory...

Re: and a ds-515

But 450 USD is a little bit too much for a DS-515. Also when the included AF-Nikkor 4.0-5.6 70-210 mm is considered.

Thank you. Does any other DSLR (than DCD 620X, SCS 2000 and DCS 720X), perhaps of another company, use a CMY sensor?

Thank you for the explanation. My mistake was to search in the announcements of the 720X on dpreview. But the 720X was only an update of the 620X, so the special sensor design was not mentioned. I know the special suitability for low light from the 720X, bit I did not know the technology behind it. ...

I would like to add a question: Was the DCS 3 marketed by Kodak or by Canon? Or was it a co-marketing? I think the latter is right. But are there any differences in the appearance (like between Kodak DCS 520 and Canon D2000)?

Re: Contax N Digital production

I've no idea of how many were produced. The highest serial N° I got is 2747. For sure, it's quite rare, we don't see many on e-Bay and they are usually sold in private auctions. It is not one of the rarest, but it is unknown, how many have been withdrawn and destroyed by Kyocera in case of complain...

It's definitly made by Nikon, after-all there is a lotta F4 in these cameras. No. This is a hint, that Nikon delivered parts similar to the F4 for the production - and obviously many parts of the E2/E3 are made by Nikon. If it wasn't made by Nikon one would not find it here in their history: http:/...

Re: Making sense out of these numbers

Actually, regarding no. 5200028, I'm pretty sure I have seen both Nikon E2S and Fujix DS-515 bodies with this exact serial number. I have a photo of the bottom plate (incl. serial number) of the Nikon body, and I'm pretty sure I saw photos of the Fujix bottom plate as well. Unfortunately, I no long...

Re: Making sense out of these numbers

There are a couple of duplicates on the list -9100024 listed twice as an E3s and a DS-565 -5200028 listed twice as an E2s and a DS-515 though these are the same underneath-is this dual listing correct-I thought they only had one model number on them, not two.

I don't know the production numbers, but I agree, that the D1H will be rarer than the D1 or D1X. The serial numbers seem to be a good source for production numbers of japanese cameras (in opposite to Nikon cameras from Thailand). Perhaps we should consider also the D2 series. The estimated productio...

I only once saw a 760M on ebay. It was sold for about 2000 USD.

Not only the dynamic range, but also the resoltion should be better, because no color filter and no interpolation is necessary.

Maybe this is a chance for Nikon? What about a Nikon D200M?

Some of the 7XX-Kodaks seem to be rarer than the earlier models, because production was interrupted by Nikon. The DCS 760 are about 5000 or a few more, but the DCS 720X seems to exist in not more than 1600 exemplars. The 760M will be much rarer.
