App-Connected Upcycled Film Cameras : Digi Swap

Digi Swap allows users to enjoy the analog experience of a film camera while using the convenience of a smartphone. The system is made up of two parts. An adapter that attaches to the back of an old film camera and the Digi Swap iOS app work in unison to deliver a new photography experience.

The adapter projects the image captured through the film camera’s lens into the iPhone’s camera. Designed to sync what the film camera sees through its viewfinder, the app offers users some picture adjustments like ISO sensitivity. Everything else occurs automatically for a seamless experience. Moreover, the photo is automatically saved to the iPhone’s gallery as soon as the shutter button is pressed.
