Old meets new with camera hack


A photographer has hacked a Piccolette Contessa-Nettel folding camera, circa 1919, onto his Canon 5D Mark II for no other reason than to see if he could.

Photographer Jason Bognacki’s experiment might has met with poor results but the resulting images, bearing in mind that the lens is almost 100 years old, are impressively sharp and detailed under the correct lighting conditions.

Images taken inside seem to suit the jury-rigged setup up best. Outdoor photograph doesn’t agree with the old folding camera all that much
