don't have one, so that would be a no. would like to get a dial data back for the MX, but have never come across one.
doesn't that one only go up to 1994 or something?

Maybe the poll should have an option to say, 'It's a good idea in principle as long as it stays off my image area? '

My first roll with my MZ-S I didn't know about what the data back was/how it worked. All those lovely shots partially ruined. It has been turned off since. The EXIF data on the film is a neat idea, but it is pretty hard to see. And much less info than digital EXIF, of course.

yes, but it also records shutter speed, f stop and film advance number. all good for negative archival.

645N also prints exposure information on the out-of-image-area film borders...but I don't think that kind of thing is what the original poster was asking about. I believe the batteries on all of my AF SLR databacks are dead and I have no interest in reviving them.
