Old film camera with digital card?

A few minutes ago, I was reading an interesting thread here about someone who put a VERY small digital camera inside an old Cosina 35mm camera with a standard 50mm lens, looked like. Which resulted in a REALLY extreme telephoto image, as the 1/4” diameter of the digital lens was so much smaller than the old 35x24 film negative size. 
Could this be the ultimate weapon for bird photographers? It looked easily like a 500mm equivalent! And you wouldn't have to carry a huge lens around. Did anyone else see that thread before it was removed? Interesting!
