A website that makes me want to go on a road trip.

Well, the 4th of July plan is.... The Oregon Caves. Now, the question is, will my digital cut it for pictures in the cave, or do I need to bring my SLR and fuck with film? I love my SLR. It is so my baby. But I HATE having to muck with film.

I noticed that Lecia has digital backs/attachments to turn their film SLR's into digital SLRs. Why can't Canon do this too? :( Even 3 megaoixel, as long as it was a full frame sensor, would rock my socks. My current digital is 2.1mp, and it fills a whole page, when printing, nicely.

What would they need to do, to do a digital back with minimal rewiring? You would need to be able to set/control the iso from one point and let the camera know how and when to do the exposure. The ISO should be easy, jusr line up with the normal ISO sensor for reading it from the film canister. The exposure would be harder, if there was no easy way to wire this to/though the camera, then a motion sensor on the focalplane shutter, but it may or maynot work for super short exposures.

Oh well, no sense in holding my breath.
