Kodak D-5000 (1989)

Developed by Kodak's Electronic Photography Division (EPD), The D-5000 (or ECAM) was the prototype of all modern professional digital single-lens reflex (SLR) cameras. A compact autofocus SLR with megapixel color imager, memory card slots, JPEG, TTL flash, selectable color balance and program modes. The DOS model added a PCMCIA-ATA card slot. Although not a product of the FSD or Professional Photography Division (PPD) teams, the camera was marketed by FSD to government customers.

According to the press, the ECAM (electronic camera) was conceived by Steve Sasson and Robert Hills.
