I have heard the Silicone Film product is defunct. They were limited to 1.3 MPixels.

If you have a lot of money tied up in lenses, consider a digital SLR camera that is compatible with your lenses.

If you don't own a lot of lenses, stick with any good non-SLR digital camera. Digital SLRs have a lot of advantages, one of which is NOT cost.

Asided from a way to get ultra telephoto the silicone film solution seems doomed. A 600mm mirror lens becomes an effective 1710mm but the 1.3mp image is a drawback. Kodak film backs are made for high end professional studio work. The fact that you're asking the question tells me that neither solution is a good one for you.
