Kodak SCS 1000 (1997)

The Kodak SCS 1000 is one of those mysterious cameras that not surface to often. The body was a Canon EOS-1N and it overall resembled the EOS DCS 3 but was thicker and shorter. It had a 16MB internal DRAM buffer.
Two versions apparently exist(ed):
SCS 1000ir - infrared version
SCS 1000m - monochrome version
The camera used 3V Lithium batteries, had GPS capability and an optional MIL SPEC connector for SCSI and serial connection. It could record at 2.3 fps. Until now only two units have surfaced, one in Germany and one in Japan.
Jim McGarvey wrote this about the camera:
'Another ruggedized repackaged camera from FSD, the specialty camera system (SCS) 1000 cameras were noticeably more compact than the corresponding commercial EOS DCS models using the same Canon body.'
There was also a Kodak SCS 2000 released which appeared to be either a prototype or a modified Kodak DCS 760.
