If you’ve been around long enough to know what 8mm films are, good chances you have some family footage somewhere in the attic.
James Miller, Designer and Photographer based in the UK came up with a clever way of converting 8mm footage to “modern” video using a full frame Canon 5D mark II, an old projector, some LEDs, and a broken lens.
The video how-to on Vimeo shows highlights of the build process and the description provides more detailed info.
The real smarts here is projecting the movie directly onto the sensor without a mediating screen (or a bedsheet if you’re a regular reader :)
