I did see a company in Switzerland that is a crowd funded business that are making retro fit backs but they are still in production and not due until next March. They are called I'm Back
It is actually an interesting idea, if one could produce a digital unit the size of the film holder one could easily connect it with the film transfer / shutter mechanism. I just fixed one a year ago.
If you remove the film door, the size could be somewhat bigger but then the form of the camera changes and it would be difficult to use a prism finder. The camera is already like a milk carton ergonomically.
