A very unusual Rollei digital back...

    I posted to r.p.d (with no response!) a little while ago, posing the
    question of a 'roll-your-own' digital back for my Rollei 3003.

    I should have guessed, those clever folks at Rollei had already
    thought of it! I found a website which says...

    'The 2000 / 3003 Rollei system was HUGE, covering lenses from 15mm to
    1000mm. Unusual for 35 accessories included a Polaroid Back,
    Interchangeable film magazines, 250 exposure back, IR remote release,
    and electronic interval timer. Perhaps most unusual was the digital
    floppy disk back which was offered to the military, but not sold to
    the public.'

    Has anyone any knowledge of this back? Any more information would be
    welcome! I googled a post to this group from a year ago, where 'Heinz'
    (HRphoto) mentions it, but apart from that I've found nothing more.

    Perhaps I should try to make friends with some people in the German
    army...

    The website is at: http://www.cameraquest.com/rol3003.htm BTW.

    Cheers
