I’m Back Wants To Turn Your Old Film Cameras Into Digital Cameras

While Yashica is back in business with a camera with faux film, an Italy company wants to turn actual analog film cameras into digital cameras. The product called I’m Back, is an add-on device that goes into where the film would normally go into, thereby taking over the job of capturing images. Instead of film, the attachment supposedly enables the camera original optic to shoot and capture images onto a 16-megapixel sensor which are then save onto a SD card and images are then viewable on an LCD display or on your smartphone attached to the camera as part of the setup.

FOMOcamera: Life-logging Has Never Been This Discreet And Customizable!

The life-logging camera fad is over. It didn’t last long, did it? But why?

Billed as the most wearable and customizable camera, FOMOcamera is basically a badge camera. In other words, it is a camera incognito as a badge in whatever design you fancy. Perfect for ladies for capturing men in the act of leering at their breasts instead of their eyes when conversing with them. Damn. I’d better stay away from ladies wearing a badge like this for I may be caught in the act. Sorry, can’t help it. Most men are hardwired to detect beauty and I am not going to pretend I am an exception. Continue reading FOMOcamera: Life-logging Has Never Been This Discreet And Customizable!
