This project was very nicely done. The big problem with retrofitting a film body to accept a digital implant has been integration of the body's shutter/wind sequence in with the digital parts. In this case, the maker has elected to run the sensor "hot" in bulb mode which requires a separate manual step to prepare the sensor for the next shot, though I might imagine that a workaround might be possible.

Nice.

What do you mean "hot"? That he can`t turn liveview off? I understood he synchronized the Konica shutter release to the original shutter release connectors and so he chooses the shutter speed through mechanical speeds of the Konica and the camera reads that as the bulb durations. Right?

Right. The mechanical shutter determines the exposure time.
