    element14 Presents  |  MAYER MAKES VCP Profile  |  Project Videos



    In a previous episode, Clem has built a proof of concept to convert a Super 8 film camera into a digital camcorder without any modifications to the camera itself. Many of you asked for a Kit or if a digital drop-in Film Cartridge replacement was possible! Finally, Clem has the chance to revisit the project and uses the New Raspberry PI compute Module 4 and the HQ camera module to build a crazy compact cartridge that is a major stepping stone towards a real product! And during the project, he even had to start his own 3D printer Resin brand just to obtain a material that is up to the task for this project!
