A new Kickstarter campaign, created by Samuel Mello Medeiros, is designed to make a digital camera back for any 35mm film camera, as long as there is a sync cable socket on the camera. The digital back currently uses an 8 megapixel camera, but production versions of the camera will use a 16 megapixel sensor. The digital back uses a Raspberry Pi, and features Wi-Fi so you can use a smartphone (or tablet) to remotely view through the camera, as well as record video.
The digital back is designed to be adjusted to fit any 35mm film camera, and has been tested as working with the following cameras:
In the back of the “I’m Back” digital back is a focusing screen, and there is a digital camera and lens unit that takes a photo of the focusing screen. The digital back is designed to be low-cost, with a price of €175 Euros for early backers. Via NR.
