OT 35mm SLR camera

Came across my 35mm SRL Nikon camera. Are these things worth anything at all now? Or just junk.

If you are really good at taking photos it would be worth a lot. So, probably next to not a lot.

Chuckle, so how is it nobody sells a kit that fits in like a film but with a digital array instead of the film? Brian

But they are large format cameras, not normally sized 35 mm ones. Brian

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? Brian

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)

The game is not worth the candle. You can now pick up a digital body that way outperforms a film camera for a couple of hundred, and a £100 lens today outperforms a £1000 one of 20 years ago.

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: https://www.dropbox.com/s/64notn8key1tmks/Knockhill%20KDMC%20bike%20racing%2017.jpg?dl=0

So you admit that you did exactly what I described above rather than use the correct technique that professional photographers used back in the key day of film.
Why not just buy a video recorder ?.

Actually, I know someone who did the above with film. Bloody expensive, but if you're selling the shots, you want the best.

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 every time.

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.
