FUJI DS-300 / PENTAX DM-1100 - 1997.    Pentax has marketed a wide variety of medical photography products over the years, and still does.  In 1997 they sold a modified version of the Fuji DS-300 for that purpose.  It had a permanent lens barrel and the P/S/A/M/PC modes removed.  Also, the lens does not zoom in and out, but is stationary.  Apparently, only a few were made, but an individual did come across one in 2019.  This is just one of many hundreds, perhaps thousands of cameras that have been used for industrial, medical or scientific purposes.  Most of such cameras were not sold for consumer use and thus are seldom seen for sale on eBay or elsewhere.  Occasionally, such consumer cameras as the Fuji DS-300 or the Fuji DS-220 were modified and sold for medical or other purposes and somertimes do appear for sale.  Since they were based on consumer model cameras they are often of interest to collectors.
