POLL: would you buy a digital back for film cameras?
Dec 21, 2012

So we have this Nikon's patent of digital backs for film cameras.

If we wanna see this product seeing the light of day, what about a Poll?

Please, present your thoughts here.

I'll start with my own vote: YES, I DO WANT IT x

I started in photography directly in the digital age. But I did have a few film cameras (F90X, Mamiya 645), and shot a bunch of Provia for a few years.

I'd always wanted to buy a Nikon F5 and F6, both extremely gorgeous cameras, but I do not want to mess with film anymore (as I don't have my own scanner).

So if Nikon could market a digital back for these cameras, I'd buy a F6 tomorrow.

No, I don't consider a D700/800 to be the F6 digital equivalent.  I want that charm and beauty of those extremely well built film cameras.

Bottom line:  I'd buy many film cameras, and many digital backs, if these were made available.

What are your thoughts?
