Digital backs for analogue cameras.

Used to have an OM1n/OM2sp kit.
Two bodies, three Olympus lenses.
Lugged it all around in a shoulder-crunching leather case for over thirty years.

Then bought an Olympus C5050Z and the faff of analogue no longer seemed worthwhile. So eventually I sold it all.
But I do miss the hardware quality.

So now I [belatedly] see that at last there's a digital back.

Who knew?

Not that expensive. Around SFr350 for my OM2.

If I hadn't sold it.

Those were lovely cameras, my first job was in a camera shop and I sold quite a few. I've never taken to digital photography unfortunately. The mechanical components in SLRs of that era were a wonder to behold.

Not Really a digital back but a digital base and another set of mirrors. Looks like it would wreck the ergonomics of the camera.
