Conspiracy Theory > Digital 35mm Film Canister/CCD Back

Greetings... about 6 years ago I heard comments here in Japan of a private company in the US that had submitted patents for a standard size 35mm film canister with an attached CCD plate, this combination would turn any standard film 35mm camera into a digital camera. The market consequences are obvious for the big film and camera makers. Has anyone heard of this or the status ? A internet check turned up nothing...just curious. Best regards, from Japan

Thankfully that company has faded into obscurity.

These are called "Digital Backs".

Such are readily available but tend to be in the many thousand dollar range. The companies are in a bad way since it's a niche product that costs quite a bit. However for those that want such a thing, it's out there.
