This would have been an interesting idea…

Once in a while, somebody comes up with a great idea.

And this thing, if it were produced, would have given old 35mm cameras a new lease of life, particularly for those people who couldn’t afford the prices of film processing etc.


The RE-35 was shaped just like the classic 35mm film that would fit into the standard film camera compartment. The RE-35 cartridge was designed to use flash memory, to save the digital images in high resolution JPEG’s or RAW up to 4, 8 and 12 Megapixels.

To export the photos and recharge the cartridge you’d connect the cartridge via USB to your computer, both Mac or PC.

What a wonderful idea, but sadly the company behind it went bust as their funding apparently dried up and nobody else was willing to finance it.

ME & MY PASSION! ok, you probably looked at the length of this "about me" page and thought, god, what's wrong with this guy!....does he have to start telling us his life story or something!!? well, youve come here now anyways, so why not hear what im like as a person, eh? ive been using film cameras for well over 30 first one being the family yashicamat twin lens! over the years, ive both bought sold and collected film cameras...too many to tell the truth! in fact, ive been buying and selling cameras well before the internet came on the scene, so anything you purchase from me is backed by my self-styled moneyback promise.....if you dont like what youve bought, send it back within 14 days and you get all your money arguments!! WHERE I STAND ON THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION! yes, i do use digital as well, but only as a ready-reckoner...i try and take most shots with my simple 2megapixel digicam....if the shot looks good, i pull out my film camera and shoot! i most defintely do not believe in digital manipulation of photographs....that in my eyes is not photography...its cheating! WHERE I USED TO LIVE, WHERE I AM NOW & WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO! i used to live in Ontario, Canada, but moved back to the UK a little while ago (its a long story..!)...but now i'm living in the one place i always wanted to be...Vancouver, BC..the next best thing to paradise on earth! as i work as a freelance writer as well as other things, i often find hat my work takes me to europe for short spells, so i get to travel a lot...not a blessing, as i just hate long flights! im a qualified Quality Assurance guy (you know...ISO 9000, auditing, documentation etc) ....99% of my skill-set is transferable so i can handle any admin or documentation-related roles....see you in BC! otherwise, i specialise in ISO 9000 auditing and documentation. my dream? to have my own thriving camera shop in Vancouver BC, whilst living in the mountains somewhere.....the best of both worlds!

  1. Shame!, what a great idea, but poor old Ilfords and Kodak at the same time – this would have totally finished them off. I would have had my fm2 and Super A with me all the time, oh – hum!

    • quite right, nigel!
      let me tell you that somebody uses this as an april fools day prank, but the thing did really exist…i read about it in the Amateur Photographer mag from the UK
