A while back, we reported on a project being worked on by Badass Cameras that involved connecting a smartphone to a medium format camera via a special back. And now, it’s on Kickstarter–complete with
rage-inducing awe-inspiring video and all. The best part: it’s called HASSELNUTS. Hasselnuts pledges to bring new life to your medium format Hasselblad film camera by letting you mount your iPhone to it and shoot away.
Sounds cool right?
Not if you’re a medium format lover! You’re shooting with a small area of the entire medium format lens coverage. However, we’re going to admit that it is still significantly more affordable than professional medium format backs–even if it doesn’t allow you the dynamic range, color depth, or full manual controls. Editor’s Correction: There is ground glass, and you’re shooting with the entire area of the imaging circle.
A demo video is after the jump. Head on over to their website to check out their sample images too.
