Samuel Mello Medeiros has once again taken to Kickstarter to raise funds to take his unique Raspberry Pi DSLR case into production, which has been designed to transform DSLR cameras into digital systems.
Watch the video below to learn more about how Samuel has used the latest Raspberry Pi 3 together with a custom-designed case to add extra digital features to a retro analogue DSLR camera.
This case is something incredible! Other than protecting your raspberry pi 3 it allows you to connect your Breadboard through the 26 or 40Pin flex cable, now express your creativity! Take beatiful 35mm pictures with your old analog cameras! All you have to do is: – Detach the rear cap from the camera (this works on most cameras between the 50s and the 80s) – Adjust the exposure “hole” to the camera module installed on the back (8mp camera) – Connect the Sync Flash cable from the camera to the case – Set the exposure in “B” (Bulb) and you’re ready to go!
Raspberry Pi – This is the only box that allows you to realize your projects and fit in a analog 35mm camera and take digital photos! In addition to protecting your raspberry pi it gives you the possibility to take photos with an old analog camera SLR or rangefinder.
