Man Creates a Frankencam Using an iPhone and Canon SLR

For whatever reason, Vimeo user Aniebres decided to combine the bulkiness of an SLR camera with the lowly sensor of a phone camera. Taking an old Canon film SLR, he gutted it and created a space for his iPhone to snap into place. What’s sad is that the SLR acts as a completely useless shell, and the lens has to be removed for photos to be taken. If only he took off the lame Apple sticker on the front, he might be able to pass off as a photographer… as long as he only snapped photos while changing lenses or something.

Here’s the video of the frankencam (which he calls the “iCannon 4″):

Please… If you’re going to put a lawnmower engine in the body of a race car, at least spell the car’s name correctly!

    This is why we can’t have nice things.

    I really don’t understand the point of people doing things like this. I can only conclude that they’re trying to pretend that the iPhone can become some sort of SLR replacement – its a self justification thing.

    Attaching “proper” lens to a crappy phone and using digital iCrapZoom… brilliant!!!

    Look way to weird especially the off centre lens, also stupid he did not use the mirror and prism to able to realign everything so it atleast would had look like a normal canon and just such a wierd camera where the lens is in the wrong spot.
