That is true, but, still... depending on price or specs it'd still be something interesting.

A friend was telling me over in Twitterland that there were such things as 35mm digital adaptors like the one described on the page, only they didn't seem to be very good and were rather costly.

I was sent that ad by someone yesterday - I did think it seemed too good to be true (though I did think I needed to have a look in 6 months to see if anything came of it). Though some sort of replacement Camera back with a Sensor where the film would be, I would have thought would be feasable. Though nowadays I suspect anyone with the resorces to develop such a thing is either A) already in the Camera manufacturing business and/or B) considers theres not enough demand left (most serious camera folk (who might have the money for some sort of conversion) prob went digital years ago).

Both, and also of course what Laurence says: people with old Canon EOS lenses,e etc, no longer sell them for nothing so it might not be a cost effective way of going about this.

My old camera's somewhat older than that - an old T70 with FD series lenses.
