Actually, no, because the Hassys, Mamiyas, Rolleis, etc, are designed to 
take different kinds of backs - But....And I'm not looking for a fight with 
you...They may be fine for studio work, but they are far, far less than 
ideal. When someone produces a digiback for the 2 1/4s that is 
self-contained - no computer tether, power supply, etc. - that takes a CF 
card or the equivalent that holds at least the 12 images of a standard 120 
roll of film, so that the camera has the flexibility it has with a film 
back, then we can talk.

Is that also true for the range of digital backs available for Hassy's, 
Mamiya's, etc.
