The advent of digital camera’s have rendered many fine, quality film based 35 m/m cameras obsolete. Many consumers and photographers still own these film based camera’s and would desire to continue using them.
The re-useable digital camera adapter is an innovative opto-electronic consumer product device that replaces 35 m/m film and can be inserted into conventional film based 35 m/m camera allowing the camera to capture and store images in a digital rather than film based format. The market for a device that allows a standard 35 m/m camera to capture images in digital format could be huge. Purchasing such a device would be a cost effective way to preserve and elongate the life of these fine legacy 35 m/m film based camera’s.
The device takes the external shape of a standard 35 m/m film canister with a protruding “tail” piece that houses the digital sensor array. It is inserted into a 35 m/m camera body as you would insert a film canister. All electronics, rechargeable battery and image storage memory are contained within the “canister” portion of the adapter device.
