The new and improved “I’m Back” digital back for Nikon film cameras is now on Kickstarter



The improved I'm Back® project that adds a digital back to old film cameras is back on Kickstarter and is compatible with many Nikon F models (see the full list at the bottom of this post). This is a new and improved version from the previous "I'm Back" projects:


Additional information:

The first low-cost digital back for your 35mm camera. For those who always wanted to have a "hybrid" camera working with photographic films or in digital mode.

Use your old analog camera, which probably is lost somewhere inside a box or ended-up in your small "personal museum" taking a lot of dust! We're now in the digital era and are ready to give a second life to it with the only low-cost digital back available on the market!

The main innovation nevertheless, is the software, that gives now the possibility to take photos with the MANUAL mode, leaving the user full control of the shutter speed and the diaphragm aperture of the camera. I'm Back®35 will then record the images as it was set through the analog camera!
