Hi, Graham this was the news we all hoped would happen when digital reared its head. My Minoltas still languish in the bottom of the wardrobe,and every summer I buy a film and shoot a few images just to renew my friendship.Many times whilst yarning over a pint conversation has turned to why doesnt some one make a digital back for all these redundant cameras. most of which where very valuable, till we all got seduced into throwing them away,or not...Kind regards Mike.

Hi Mike
Like you I have a few old 35mm film cameras just gathering dust. I really like the idea of using them all again ... Graham
