Do-it-yourself 3-megapixel DSLR from iXBT / Digit-Life
"Answering" Olympus´s 4/3 initiative, our "fun factory" released a digital camera supporting a wide number of interchangeable lenses of the most open standard M39X1/28.8 (GOST1032-72).
In its manual mode the camera can work with almost any lenses designed for rangefinder, reflective and medium-format cameras as well as with microscopes. Currently we are testing an experimental sample named "iXBTcam" that features a focal-plane shutter and a 3-megapixel Sony ICX 252 sensor.
Such a return to the classical standard doesn´t imply any sensor limits. In the future we plan to use the auto-focusing system that will move the sensor itself, as it´s much lighter in weight than a typical lens. This will enable us to use any lenses in the auto-focusing mode.
Camera´s aperture controls are to be output to a body connector that will allow using instant-return diaphragm lenses with respective adapters.
On the photo you can see the camera with Jupiter 3 lens for FED, Pentacon 135 lens and also Rubinar 500 lens with M42 mount and 45.5mm flange focal distance.
