Years ago when digital was first starting....someone was going to produce a digital sensor, (looked like a roll of film with the film sticking out) to go inside a Nikon F3. Anyone know what happened to the technology? Was it ever produced and marketed? I kinda hate to loose all the $ invested in my Nikons. Even a back or insert that produced some imaging would be worth it?

It never made it to market (and I didn't think it would, since the technical hurdles of a generic back are too hard to overcome).

That's not to say that Nikon wouldn't try to make a back designed specifically for some of their film models. But, I doubt they will.

You're better off buying a DSLR. See my post on the last page of this thread:
