In the years since photographers started transitioning from film to digital in the early 2000s, many companies promised conversion kits. Devices you could put inside a film camera to turn it into digital cameras. None of them ever really materialised. But thanks to devices like the Raspberry Pi, DIY analogue to digital conversions have become quite popular projects.
In his debut video, photographer and YouTuber Malcolm Jay shows off his custom DIY conversion. Inspired by projects such as the Becca Cam, he modified a broken Yashica Electro 35, adding a Raspberry Pi Zero 2W and the Raspberry Pi HQ Camera to bring his 1960s 35mm SLR into the 21st century.
