Not sure if anyone else has spotted this, but this looks like it could be interesting if he can pull it off...

He's talking a pretty small 12-14MP sensor at this stage, but reckons that it will be upgradeable (at a cost) and that his technology would handle full-frame if he can source a suitable sensor.

I guess it must be light triggered and he seems to have a microswitch on the "film" part that gets flipped by the film advance sprockets to re-enable for the next shot.

I don't think that I'll be pledging because the sensor is too small for me, and if I had a couple of hundred pounds spare at this stage I'd be looking at putting it towards another D200 - or possibly a D300.

I might be interested later on down the line if the sensor size is increased and the costs stay reasonable.
