Analog Camera to Digital: A Raspberry Pi Camera Project

A unique project carried out with a Rasperry Pi Zero W has served to transform an analog camera into a digital one. Thanks to this, the camera is capable of taking photos, recording video and even sending those contents wirelessly to the internet.

For this, a user nicknamed “Befinitiv” has used the reel of analog cameras and has adapted it so that thanks to the Raspberry Pi and some electronic components. Among them, a 5-megapixel digital camera module that actually takes the photos, with the old camera “disguising” the whole experience.

It was precisely this camera module that limited the final results a bit: Befinitiv wanted to use the high-quality camera of the Raspberry Pi, but the size of that 12.3-megapixel sensor did not allow it.
