Hello! 

I have a strong love for photography, especially film photography. However, with the sky high cost of film i have been considering seeing if it is possible to turn a fully mechanical film camera into a digital. personally i am not very good at DIY and crafts but i’d love to see if it is possible. ideally the system would be full frame so there is no or very minimal crop factor on any of the lenses and would be removable so actual rolls of film can be used too. this would allow me to enjoy my old minolta srt 101 more of the time instead of having to spend a fortune on a roll of film. This idea is more for other people to try due to my lack of ability doing DIY so if anyone has a spare old unused film camera lying around i’d love to hear about someone trying this and making it work!

have a great day and thank you,

Fin

I'm Back® digital back - Digital back for analog cameras. title words (imback.eu)

Very difficult (and expensive) but doable, certainly.

The problem might be getting hold of a suitable donor body.

Take everything I say with a pinch of salt, I might be wrong!

Someone managed to convert a Super8 film cartridge into a digital camera capture device. Anything is doable, but I think in this case it might be better just getting a used older DSLR, and maybe adapters to re-use some old lenses? Quality full frame sensors can cost a pretty penny.

The project aims to launch a new taxi company that exclusively operates electric vehicles (EVs), providing a cleaner, smoother, and quieter transportation option for passengers. The company will differentiate itself from traditional taxi services by catering specifically to women passengers, providing a safe and comfortable travel experience. The fleet will consist of fully electric cars, reducing carbon emissions and promoting sustainability. The company will partner with EV charging stations to ensure a convenient and efficient charging process for its drivers. Additionally, the company will implement advanced technology, such as GPS tracking and real-time passenger updates, to enhance the overall passenger experience. With a focus on safety, comfort, and sustainability, the company plans to revolutionize the taxi industry and become a leader in eco-friendly transportation.

@gossi123 Just a quick one, EVs are nowhere near as carbon-friendly as they appear to be.

For the most part what they do is move the emissions somewhere else and (worse) the car and the battery contain huge amounts of what we call "captured carbon" which is the amount of crud spat into the atmosphere to do everything from mining the rare earth elements all the way to the plastic parts inside. Not a single new part comes without an unknowable amount of carbon emissions.

Even down to the nuts and bolts.
