RE35 35mm Digital Film: Too Bad It’s Not Real

by Shane McGlaun

Any time a week before and a week after April Fools’ Day, when I see something cool that looks like it is too good to be true I always get cautious. There is nothing in the description of the RE35 that screams “I’m a Fake” but the product seems like it’s something that would be very hard, if not impossible to make.


The product claims to be a special film roll that you can cram into an old-school 35mm film camera. It has some sort of pull out sensor film that lays over the lens opening of the camera. When the user presses the film camera shutter button the digital image is captured by the RE35 and stored inside the canister.

The photo is would be stored by flash and then accessed on your computer via a USB cable. The description says you can get the thing in 4MP, 8MP, and 12MP versions and that it will work with Macs and PCs.

Unfortunately, the RE35’s creators have admitted it’s a fake already, so you can’t have one. Even so, it’s a cool concept for sure.

    This concept has been in development around 2000 or 2001. If I remember right there was a US company working on the idea back then. Never heard of it again, till this post.
