Re: Why are DSLR bodies bigger than film era SLR?

But DSLRs do not have space on the left side to hold a 35mm roll of film, nor a take-up spool on the right side, nor a pressure plate in the middle!

For example, I compared F6 with D700. Overall dimension are similar, but when you look at their volume, D700 is chunkier.

Well, film cameras did not have neither sensor, nor back LCD...
