DynamiX digital macro camera (1996)

SciCan Corporation, a company founded in 1991, has pioneered cosmetic imaging technology in dentistry since 1996. They re-vamped a Kodak DC40 and turned it into the DynamiX digital macro camera, the first digital camera for dentistry. It was delivered complete with a set of special lenses, brackers, distance holders, manual and software in a suitcase. The entire package was called ImageFX. The camera was prefocused by selecting an appropriate lens for it. It was a point and shoot camera that could take macro images as close as 2 inches. The adjustment knob on top would fine tune the brightness of the flash. You could therefore make the flashlight darker or brighter according to what you were shooting.

They weren't the only one keen enough to transport the digital camera into the dentistry business. Kaidan also offered a close-up lens set with ring flash attached that would fit the DC40. Their so-called Kodak DC40 dental package was marketed in 1996.
