The two answers are:
1) No such camera exists.
2) How much money do you have to invest in a company that has been promising such a thing "Real Soon Now" for the past several years? I'd bet you could buy the company for less than a few million, but that still wouldn't get you the dual use camera you want.

Actually it does, but you have to pay an arm and a leg for it... It's called medium format with a digital back! :lol: :lol: :lol:

... and you can switch it on the fly interchangeably with films! BTW there's a version for the Hasselblad as well.

A year ago I came across a product which was a drop in ccd 'cassette' for a 35mm slr. Sorry, can't remember the name or what its performance was. Seem to remember it was quite expensive compared to new digicam. It was a full frame ccd.

Yup, that is the one I was thinking of. IMHO, to call it vaporware would attach more solidity than it deserves.

NHL - you are right about some medium format SLRs being convertable. But somehow I don't think tigarlady was thinking about spending something like $20-30,000US.
