Thanks! Glad you like it.

I've just updated the article with a new discovery:

The name DCS 100 was probably first used in an article published in the New York Times on August 2, 1992, shortly before the announcement of the next generation DCS 200.

Asking Jim McGarvey, he responds: "I think it probably is the source. I have a photocopy of this article, and it's the first article I have that uses the "100" moniker, though I had not noticed that before you pointed it out!

It's probably the first publication of the DCS200 news, since it's before the Mac World announcement and we did not announce much before that show.

I remember John Durniak's name - he must have been close to Kodak. I see that he died in 1997, so we may never know for sure."

Here's the article: http://www.nytimes.com/1992/08/02/style ... rward.html

A thread on sportsshooter.com discussing the DCS 100:

"The military photographers assigned to document the 1992 Presidential Inauguration (for the Smithsonian) were given these things to use. One of the dumbest decisions in archiving history IMO."
