digital retro camera hack

Want to impress your mates by whipping out an old-looking camera, only for it to be stuffed full with digital camera guts? That’s exactly what someone did with his Sony DSC-WX1, cramming it into the classic Leica II body (actually a Zorki 1 knockoff). In case you think you’re up for the task, the details have been posted online, just remember not to blame us if you end up with an expensive pile of components. While it’s obviously not the main focus here, but it’s probably worth mentioning that the DSC-WX1 is a 10.2-megapixel shooter that offers 720p video recording with its 24mm wide-angle lens. Video after the jump.
