Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #24,022 in Camera & Photo
Someone tweet or put the above link on FB, this camera will be #1 in a fortnight or less!
There used to be thousands and thousands of such hybrid cameras used in in chain studios, both deparment store and school photos, at least in the U.S. and Canada.
They were essentially a stop gap measure before digital had enough quality to stand on its own. When this gear was changed over to digital only, virtually no one was interested in the hybrid gear which was mostly scrapped. Of course, these were big cameras, needing heavy-duty camera stands, not like you are probably thinking of. But still, there was no demand. One of the long-time manufacturers of long-roll portrait cameras (among numerous other products), PhotoControl Corp., went out of business about this time.
So no, I don't think there would be much interest today. If you wanted to rig something yourself, you could probably mount a tiny digital camera in the flash shoe of a standard film camera.
Kinda like hitching a pig and a mule together when you want to plow the field...
To throw two wrenches in things, first, why is this discussion allowed since it contains digital, shouldn't this be a DPUG topic which covers hybrid technology?
Also, what about a film camera that shoots TWO KINDS OF FILM at once, so you could for example shoot a roll of 400TX and also shoot a roll of Portra400 at the same time, now to me that would make more sense for the film market :)
But good input, however, using your example why not just shoot digital and make it look like film by adding grain in Photoshop?
:) see, all of a sudden doesn't sound as good.
