Kodak's Electro-Optic Camera was designed in 1987 by Jim McGarvey and Bill Toohey, and assembled by technician Tom McCarthy as a real smart professional DSLR. All analog imaging preprocessing electronics were packed into the special digital back of a Canon F-1 SLR body. The CCD was much smaller than the camera's original frame format 24×36mm. It was the World's first megapixel CCD which had been announced in 1986 by Kodak's Microelectronics Technology Division MTD. A flat cable connected the camera with the analog/digital-conversion electronics of the image recording unit, which could be connected to a digital tape recorder as archiving unit.
