Hi all,

You know old SLR devices are very cheap and lenses are very powerfull and chepest too.

I heard that some mini electronic devices are converting SLR type machines to new digital machines. It (ccd sensor) puts and fits into 35mm film hole and light directly drops to this mini device instead of film.

Look at this link, http://www.epi-centre.com/reports/imagek.html

did you meet any other link, price about on internet and shopping ?

Regards..

This was a popular idea years ago, but there were substantial obstacles. For instance, all the electronics, including an additional battery,would have to fit on the camera back, which would make the whole camera bigger, heavier and more cumbersome. The idea only ever took off for high end, medium format cameras, like Hasselblad and Mamiya.

There never were any products for 35mm film SLRs.
