Why no Full Frame Digital Body like Compact Film Cameras.

Dear All,

Kindly explain and discuss why a compact 35mm Sensor Camera cannot be made which was possible in the days of film.

What are the problems and restriction in digital technology that’s preventing the manufacturer to not release a true compact Full Frame sensor body with interchangeable lens or even fixed retractable lens (even smaller) ?

Atleast a F50/F60/F65 like body will be fine.


Some Nikon Film Compact Cameras with fixed lens can be seen below:
