The perfect solution has indeed allready been invented. It's called
APS. The better APS cameras like the Nikon Pronea record all important
parameters; these can also be printed on the back of the prints (if the
APS print processor supports it). High time Olympus makes one of these
with an OM mount. The specs of the Centurion (S) don't really make me
happy :-(
Modern hi-tech AF 35 mm cameras like the Nikon F5 can also store these
data, but you must  download them from the camera to a computer for
further processing/administration. A less perfect solution. The OM-5Ti
will probably support this, too :-)

But fortunately you wrote me recently you aqcuired an OM-4Ti; so this
means now all your exposures are perfect, no need for "data mining"? :-)
