Rob writes – “I started out with a Minolta from 94′ or so that had a busted something or other. I also had a QuickCam express usb camera that would give us our ccd. After dissembling the quickcam with one screw and cutting the shutter from the Minolta we had done most of the work. Also we lost our IR filter when we ditched the old quickcam lens, so for now we get that sweet halo effect for free.”Link.

  1. It’s an interesting project idea. From what I understand of this project, it looks like you can’t actually use the viewfinder or shutter. Basically this is a focusable webcamera that you can use really nice lenses on.

    Kinda rad, actually! I think I want to haxinate my iSight. :)
