I think that an SLR Camera that has the ability to switch between Film and Digital recording should be produced. Even though it may not be very compact, It'll be mine when it comes out and a very convenient thing!


What do you think?

Cheers! Big thumbs up

There was a company that was supposed to make replacement backs for at least pentax cameras, I don't think they ever really got it into production.


OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

It's cheaper to just have an additional film body slung around your neck.

I don't think there's much of a demand for a hybrid. I could be wrong, but I am guessing that with the advancements in digital printing, much to Kodak and Polaroid's dismay, most people are going all-digital.

Leica has the R9 which has an interchangable back.
You can buy digital and filmbacks both and put on which is needed at the time.

There are persistent rumours that Nikon is working on a similar system (with possibly several different backs) for the F6.

Sony produces consumer mini-DV cams which can film and can also take pictures with 800.000 pixels resolution and store them on a memory stick. It is not a SLR but it is an alternative for less than $700.

Plenty exist already ... medium format cameras with interchangeable backs. Only catch is the digital back will set you back 20-30K  Smile

Not a bat idea. You'll be able to take a few hi-res digital shots, and then select the best one, which will then be printed onto slide or print film. And you'll come up with the perfect roll  Big thumbs up

I was having a conversation about something similar to this with Josh Rawlin yesterday during lunch. He told me that he had read somewhere that there is talk about making some type of "film" canister that would fit into the area where your roll film goes into, yet it would be digital. I guess it would be somewhat similar to a compact flash card or something and the light from the lens hits the sensor in the back????

Sounds like a cool idea. I have a Canon EOS 1VHS and I shudder to think about not being able to continue to use it if I go digital with another body.

the 'digital film' has been hyped for years now. The website (last I checked before dumping the link) hadn't been updated in years, mentioned sub-1MP performance costing about $250 and could store maybe 30 frames.

It is generally believed to be a hoax or some means to trick money out of venture capital providers with no intention to ever create a marketable product.
