Samuel Mello Medeiros has unveiled the next generation of his hardware system that transforms old analog SLR cameras into digital DSLR systems.
The low-cost system has been specifically created to transform a RaspberryPi, Arduino, Genuino, Omega2 or similar into the processing power required to transform the analog 35mm camera into a digital state-of-the-art system.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the I’m Back – Advance – Digital Back which is taken to Kickstarter to raise the required funds to go into production. It’s creator explains more about his latest campaign and the developments that have taken place to I’m Back.
Thank you all for backing me during the first phase of my project. Now I redesigned I’m Back, made the buttons stiffer and a bigger protection on the rear of the back. But it isn’t finished yet and on it’s launch you’re going to be amazed by the result!
A low cost system to transform your RaspberryPi, Arduino, Genuino, OMEGA2, Tinker Board, Pine, ODROID, Orange Pi, Banana Pi to a digital back for 35mm cameras from the 50/60/70s and 80s! It’s your opportunity to give life back to your reflex left in the attic, or purchase a reflex and take beautiful analog pictures that are then transformed to digital thanks to an open source chip installed inside the back!
My intention since the beginning was to mass produce a low cost digital Back, I’ve been working on reaching my objective for 4 years already. To achieve my goal I’m going to need your help so I’m offering for a limited time the opportunity to purchase a file containing the instructions and the files needed for printing your own I’mBack with your favorite chip!
“I’m Back™”works with a great number of camera models and it has a Z X Y regulation which allows to adjust the F stop (24X36mm) which is placed behind the shutter. Adjust the exposure hole XYZ axis to adjust the exposure hole Simple vertical alignment, horizontal and depth (red buttons). Simple vertical alignment, horizontal and depth.
This case is something incredible! Other than protecting your raspberry pi 3 (or others) it allows you to connect your Breadboard through the 26 or 40Pin flex cable, now express your creativity! Take beautiful 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!
