Design of objects, Art & photography, Health & education
First, thanks to everybody who support this project.
Sadly, the campaign doesn't reach the given goal, I draw the necessary conclusions and you should be refunded of all you had given to the campaign.
I'll not give up the project anyway, I will continue to work on it during my free time with my own money. Everything will be slower, probably less documented too, but nothing is never over with the OpenSource.
I will continue to update the project here : http://hackaday.io/project/1834-OpenReflex-rework
During the campaign, one of the biggest restraint was the old school / film aspect of the camera.
That's why one of the main development axis will be the building of a DIY digital back big size, with low cost and simple elements. From the firsts track I get some ideas that could give very interesting results. (sensible surface of 60x60mm (even 6x9) with 70Mpix)
I do not exclude a new campaign in the future, but nothing without more concrete elements to show and much more preparation.
I will work now much closer to the Saint Etienne (Fr) FabLab "OpenFactorySainté" and also try to involve the local makers and photographer community to join me in the development.
If you want to continue to follow this project and be involved in the development do not hesitate to contact me directly [ contact ~ãt~ leomarius.com ] , I'll continue to update this page with the more significative elements.
Thanks again to all of you,
Here is a quick adaptation to my last OpenReflex hack for my Canon DSLR.
Now I can use this lens on my two cameras ! :)
It's working fine, soon pictures I take with this setup ! (I just need to find my compact flash memory cards...)
Here is the 3D file with a quick explanation.
Got a old cameras collection ? Some a broken and you don't know what to do with ?
OpenReflex got a solucion, you just have to print a custom ring lens for your camera and you can use it on the OpenReflex ! And even on your modern DSLR !
Here is a test I just make with an old broken camera I have.
Some pictures of the OpenReflex setup :
