How about an amateur technical photographer.
I have two cameras either of which would probably do the job.
However, if you have qualms about proprietary firmware, be advised
that since these are relatively modern cameras with solid-state
storage, they both have a fair amount of embedded firmware of unknown
origin. The newer camera even has occasional downloadable firmware
If you really want to go back in camera history and avoid firmware, I
also have a 35mm film SLR camera which I have not used in many years.
It has a complement of various lenses, again one of them would most
likely do the job. But you lose the immediate feedback of the camera
with microSD storage. Also I don't offhand know where one would get
the film processed.
