Did a search and found that there was a company by the name "Silicon Film" that claimed to develop digital backs for 35mm SLR like Nikons.

"This company gathered the names and e-mail addresses of believers on their web site, published product specifications, and was very adept at releasing frequent press releases. This went on for more than 3 years. The company suspended operations in September 2001 in anticipation of bankruptcy. See http://www.dpreview.com/news/0109/01...mvaporizes.asp for complete details."
But I did managed to locate one company making digital backs for 35mm SLR but it's not for Nikon, Canon..etc. It's for Leica!!!!
"Danish scanner and digital camera back manufacturer, Imacon have partnered with leading German camera manufacturer, Leica Camera AG, and Kodak's Division for Imaging Sensor Solutions, and will develop a revolutionary new digital camera back for Leica's single lens reflex R8 and R9 camera series. The Leica Digital Module R is to be introduced to the industry at photokina 2004, and will be the world's first hybrid 35mm SLR camera with the option for either digital or analogue photography"

i just read a recent article on luminous landscape on digital backs - price is around US$22000 and guess what? There's a cropping factor too!
