    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.

    It's not quite that easy - the DMR is both a back and a winder contoured to the R body shape. It requires some signaling between the camera and the back to synchronize the exposure -- you want to reset the sensor just before the shutter fires and read out just after, otherwise you get a lot more noise. Since the AE1P lacks that signalling, it would have to be hacked in. The back also bulges out a lot more than the Canon back which would make the AE1P viewfinder a PITA to use. If you mainly want to use Canon FD lenses, there are much better solutions.

    Would it be safe to say that most F3 users don't use a flash?

    Well, I had a pair of F3 bodies that I used for weddings for a very long time. Flash, on a bracket was mandatory. Every two years or less, the PC had to be replaced because they would "burn up" from use.

    Faster sync speeds was not as important indoors as the F3's TTL flash which was not common at the time of it's release.

    I had to carry three different neutral density filters to use flash outdoors with the F3. I must have used two F3 camera bodies for over ten years for weddings, indoor model shoots and all of my personal work.

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.
    Actually that is a useful feature to speed up loading film. regardless of mode you can cycle shutter to wind film on take up spool. With the lens cap on and loading a new roll with the camera in aperture priority mode it will take forever to load or you have to switch modes.

    It is also useful to confound the uninititated into selling the body cheap because they are tricked into thinking the camera is stuck on one shutter speed when they were playing with it either with the back open or fire a few shots and see no speed change.

    I got 2 FAs cheap because of this very reason.
