There have apparently be a few attempts at doing a kind of digital film
replacement unit, but has usually turned out to have a number of
unexpected difficulties and complications getting it to work in a
variety of cameras. One of the first problems to deal with is the
spacing between where the film can goes and where the sensor needs to be
is not a standard distance. Then there is the need to provide feedback
to the film advance detection systems that count sprocket holes etc -
again with sensors in a variety of places. Then there is the difficulty
of keeping the sensor clean.
I'd have thought that adjustments would be needed only once, and that would
be that. OK you would need some access if you wanted to get the memory card
out of course, but apart from the inconvenience of no display, something we
never had before digital anyway, its a minor issue I'd have thought.
Software could make the response film like, that only leaves the wind on
problem. Does this really affect anything?
This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from...
It does with the motor wind built into lots of the more recent film SLRs.
The reality is you would probably have to build multiple models to fit
various cameras, and even then you would not get all the features of a
true digital camera like being able to check and review what you have
just taken immediately. (although a wireless link to a phone could make
up for some of the limitations and actually add some capabilities the
digital SLRs don't have like a remote viewfinder)

Idiots with digital SLRs dont bother think about what they
are doing, theyjust blast away and then use a computer
to select the pics they want and then have a fiddle with
photoshop just for good measure.
Might just as well use an iPhone.
Rubbish, I used to use a Canon EOS 10D digital SLR. Took it to a race track and shot 3000 photos in one day, just held the button down and chased the bikes as they flew past. Got home and found the best of each one.
It took this sort of thing:
If there's one thing I can't stand, it's intolerance.
Standard press photographer behaviour for several decades for fast sports
and for photocalls with politicians and royalty, where they want the most
unflattering or the cutest photo of the royal toddler.
I remember my grandpa had a friend who died some time in the late 60s and
who had been a press photographer for a local paper in his younger days.
Even that far back he was bemoaning how the youngsters took loads of photos
at football matches in the hope that some would be timed correctly, whereas
when he was a lad he was given three glass plates to take three photos of a
match, and all of them had to good 'uns. Tall order if you've already taken
your three good photos and something dramatic happens in the last few
minutes of play :-)
Obviously there's a happy medium, but with digital it costs nothing to take
a lot of photos on or about the right timing, without having to be spot on
And unless you can predict the future, you don't know when the car/motorbike/sports personality is going to look their best, so you have to take photos continuously. If you wait till the right time, you now have a nanosecond to take the shot.
