New Design for the iPerture

So. There is a now update on the iPerture project. The old electronics, consisting of an Arduino Nano, a Bluetooth Receiver HC-06 and a Canon Eos M to EF connector with an all new designed housing for all the parts. Its definitly a protoype which needs some fixes. It’s far from perfect, but it makes making images with an Sony XPERIA Z1 and a Canon 50mm EF possible. The small sensor (which is still quiet big for a smartphone; roughly 1/(2/3) inches at 21 MP) has a huge crop factor of about 4 or so. So the 50mm measured at 35 mm film equivalent is now a 150-200 mm.  „New Design for the iPerture“ weiterlesen

New Optic Design forthe iPerture

3D-printed case for the three lenses

In the previous parts of the iPerture-series, I’ve shown the basic idea of an imaging system which brings two things together. Adding a Canon Lens to an Android Phone and control its functions via Bluetooth.

Though the optic design wasn’t great. The basic idea was to bring the exit-pupil pupil of the Canon objective-lens into the entrance pupil of the Android phone. I’ve found two patents which could potentially model the two devices.
