Re: Digitised Legacy Bodies on the Horizon?

What next, something to convert a digital camera to 35mm film? Don’t see the point of this. If it was the size of an old recordata back, then maybe but this setup is too bulky. I’ll stick to using film in my old OM’s.

Re: Digitised Legacy Bodies on the Horizon?

It won't catch on, the crowdfunding hooligans are wasting their time, fortunately. Everyone knows a true camera has autofocus, auto exposure and an instruction manual thicker than the Old Testament!

What next, you ask Maybe a crowdfunding development pot of money to convert old record decks into MP3 or CD players. But hang on, aren't CD and MP3 players also extinct? I thought the in thing now is streaming music. Little or nothing is tangible in the digital world, it seems.
