Kodak DCS 425 (1996)

This is one of the most mysterious Kodak DCS cameras and I can only quote Jim McGarvey here. He said about this camera:
'Some of the FSD models became major repackaging projects. The Federal Systems Division (FSD) DCS 425 and DCS 435 digital cameras packed the 200+ electronics, batteries, and PCM CIA slot into a one-inch thick back for the Nikonos RS submersible camera for the serious military photographer.'
Thus this was a digital back transferred on a standard Nikon RS Nikonos stock body. The camera was powered up with replaceable 6V batteries.
The Kodak DCS 425 was available in three options:
Kodak DCS 425c (color CCD)
Kodak DCS 425ir (infrared)
Kodak DCS 425m (monochrome)
There was also a Kodak DCS 435 version of this camera with a lesser resolution.
