Turn any camera into a digital camera.

Maybe if I had a machine shop instead of Photoshop…

Reminds me of the 8-track to cassette converters! I guess if I had an expensive, pre-digital camera I loved, this might make sense.

This is brilliant! I have never considered this before. Some googling reveals that there were attempts to bring something like this to market from 98 to 2003. I guess it never caught on. I could think of a few complications where the insert would have to interact in the camera in ways the camera was not designed for. Like the insert knowing when the shutter was open.

Thanks! I was thinking that once the insert was activated and awake, the diopters would detect when light was admitted and stopped. That would equal a picture. You'd have to buy separate inserts for different ISOs- maybe one for 160 another for 400 and so on. I'm thinking they could be fairly cheap since they don't need advanced optics. Digital film rather than digital camera.
