There’s a Kickstarter campaign for a gadget that effectively breathes new life into old film cameras by replacing film with a digital sensor, and it’s kind of awesome that digital image sensor literally goes where the film used to live.
But of course not everything fits inside, which means that the bulk of the new components are in clunky gadget that attaches to the bottom of the camera. And the whole thing is so expensive that most folks would probably be better of just buying a new digital camera.
This crowdfunding project is for a system that converts classic film cameras to digital with an IMX269AQR1-D micro 4/3 image sensor that lives in the spot where film used to go… but there’s still an external attachment and the retail price is $900. Even the $709 crowdfunding price is rather expensive. A good digital camera might be cheaper. via BoingBoing
