Zorki Rangefinder Converted to Digital

Posted by Mr. Leslie Wong On May - 13 - 2010

Someone stuck a Sony DSC-WX1 10.2 MP digital camera inside a Russian Zorki rangefinder (a Leica II copy) – a melding of a 1950′s classic film camera with a modern digital camera.

The original site is in Japanese. (English Google translation) There are detailed build photos; the body was re-covered and even the rangefinder’s shutter release works the digital camera’s shutter. It is a beautiful hack. I wish I had the patience to do something like this.
