Film Equipment

The following list is Film Equipment that has been adapted for digital use as well as adapters for digital backs or DSLR’s to film camera.  I will continue to add to this list as necessary and as cameras come and go.  I still am able to use each camera for film if I choose, but find the digital ability loads more fun.  No you do not need to get all this “Shtuff” to play, but I love old cameras and lenses, I just wanted to breath a bit more life into these beloved old film cameras.
