Why are DSLR so bulky ?
1

Hi,

A few times ago, I've found a good old M42 SLR, a RevueFlex AC1. It was fitted with a little Industar pancake, a very nice and small combo.

As I had my Samsung NX1000 (APS-C) + 20mm pancake in my bag, I just compared both system : they have about the same footprint !

So, inserting a 3" on the back of a pretty compact camera and filling the film chamber with the required electronics should be feasible ! And with a big FF viewfinder !

But why isn't there any on the market ?
