    To Nikon F4 users, you know how the analog frame counter actually counts backward when you're rewinding your film? How come more cameras don't have that?

    Didn't know the F4 did this too as my Nikon experience ends at the F3. The Pentax LX does this too keeping the frame registration perfectly so that you can go back and forth to multiexpose any frame.

    I don't know how useful it really is for most users, but it's nice to have. The F4 has both an analog frame counter as well as a digital counter which can be seen inside the finder. Come to think of it, I've never looked in the viewfinder to see if the digital counter counts backward as the film rewinds. Unfortunately, my own F4 is resting in pieces. Towards the end of its life, the analog and digital frame counters didn't agree with each other!

    How about stupid things they put it?
    Nikon introduced a feature into their aperture priority capable cameras (F3, FE2 & FA and others?) that sets a fix shutter speed when you load a new roll and advancing it to frame 1. This is to prevent you from accidentally setting it in aperture priority with the lens cap on and the camera setting a long exposure as you try to advance to frame 1.

    Not sure if anyone mentioned the annoying low shutter speed beep... seriously? (Nikon EM/FG/FG-20)
    I wish more cameras had a shutter button lock
    My F2 has one, but it's not nearly as efficient as the Nikon F3 and later (which just shuts off the power)
    I do love the FM2/FE2, "push lever in to lock the shutter button", but then they put in the stupid tap shutter button to activate meter

    Question about the shutter count: If a camera gets a full CLA, ought the odometer be reset to zero?

    P.S. I'm still waiting for somebody to make that DIGITAL-MODUL-R for my Cannon AE-1P! It REALLY shouldn't be that hard. Even if the end result is $6000 USD like the Leica version.

    It really is that simple, and that awesome, and that important... and yet still lacking!

    If money is no object, I think you could ask an artisan (one of those people making adapter rings or working lenses on your specifications) to convert a Leica back for you.

    The basic logic should be entirely contained in the back.

    The artisan should take a normal Canon AE-1Program back, a "normal" Leica digital back, strip the electronics from the Leica, and putting it to the Canon. It might be not very hard to do for a specialist.
    Some flying wires might take energy from the winder or the artisan might adapt a battery compartment to the back.
    The final result should not look very attractive but it might be possible to do it.

    I've been eyeing my A-1 back for a couple nights now thinking along the same lines. I'd love to have $1 Billion to blow and just have a panel of experts sit at a table around me to problem solve the solution.

    Main thing I can think of is the battery space. Depends on power consumption requirements.

    Wouldn't even need many extra wires. Just some external switches. On/Off and when on the sensor is dormant waiting for light. When it sees light it saves the image. If you need more power, make a screw-on mount like the power winder A (only it can be half an inch thick), and a single lead to the back to connect the juice.

    Oh, how I've been designing it in my head. I just don't have the means or expertise to do it.
