RE-35 cartridge does digital photos

I seem to remember a company trying to do this about 7 or 8 years ago with no success. The problem has to be the price point. Yeah, you have an old 35mm film camera, but are you willing to spend $200+ on something to make it a 4-megapixel camera when you have something better than that on your phone? Somehow, I doubt it. If the price is low enough, it will sell. But will there be enough profit margin for the company selling it to stay afloat? That's the issue, I'm sure. So we'll have to keep our eyes on this one, for those of you who have an old 35mm camera that you quite possibly invested a lot of money in, and just couldn't bring yourself to get rid of it.

RE-35 cartridge does digital photos: "

Shooting with film isn’t probably an experience that most teens have these days – after all, theirs is the generation that grew up with cameras embedded within their phones, not to mention parents buying cheap digital cameras to get them started before moving on to more expensive DSLRs. If you want to relive the good old days with modern technology, then the RE-35 cartridge is your cup of tea. Representing a regular roll of film, inside the can lies a pull out image sensor which can be stretched across the opening where the film normally sits to be exposed. Available in 4-, 8-, and 12-megapixel versions, you will be able to pick from a resolution of your choice. Once you’ve finished capturing all the images it can possibly hold, just transfer it over to a computer via USB – which will also juice up the cartridge’s battery simultaneously. No idea on pricing, but the RE-35 cartridge is tipped for a release later this year.
