Is there a digital back that would be compatible with a WardFlex Camera.

You are joking, right?
If not the answer is no.

Not that you could buy off the shelf anyhow. I've seen people fit backs to TLR's before but it was a cludge at best.

From wikipedia:

Ward: a division, floor or room of a hospital set aside for a particular class or group of patients, for example a convalescent or psychiatric ward.

Wardflex - a camera for nuts?

In your dreams.

Use it as it was designed to be used!

What Steve Smith said. The Wardflex was a Japanese TLR made by Taiyodo Koki (TKK)/Beauty and rebadged under a store name by Montgomery Ward. Judging by this photo set on Flickr it's a very capable camera:

Get some 120 film and give it a go. There's an online manual available here:

I like to encourage digital people to try film.

Yeah! Whata you know, the old Wardflex can bang out some pretty good pictures. 3 lens elements?
