1. Are there cameras available from sony, kodak, samsung etc which can accept and store both image media in roll (cartridge) as well as on memory card (digital camera) ?.

i.e. Film roll cartridges as well as memory card installed in the camera.

There will be two modes of operation with a Mode Operation button
on the camera.

Clicking on Mode operation button will allow the photographer to
select two image storage media. A. Digital B. Film Roll.

if photographer selects option A then takes a photo, the image will be recorded on the memory card, if photographer selects option B  

2. Do you feel this type of camera which can accept both types of
media can be useful to photographers and other consumers  ?.

3. Technically, is it feasible (complexity) to manufacture these
type of camera product ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
I do not believe this will be a valuable tool for photographers. Any conversion from one to the other in the camera would result in an image that is of less quality than if it was done by separate hardware all ready used. Technically feasible, I don't really know but would guess that it is possible.

Expertise

I can answer basic questions about using any camera, but I am very familiar with most of the Nikon FILM cameras up to the FP 5. I have some background in advertising and marketing so I know something about placement of the object or person that would be the main focus of the photo. I did quite a bit of in home family portrature when I had my own studio in the '80s and '90s. I also did some product and commercial photography. I took most of the marketing photos for my families hotels in The Bahamas over the last 20 years so I have some experience about what 'sells' in the travel/hospitality industry.

Experience

Started photography in 1967, also worked as a newspaper printer in Molina, Oregon in 1975, I owned my own studio from 1982 to 1996 and sold my travel images as stock since then.
