PONF Multiback Open Camera – Fact #3

The PONF Multiback Open Camera brings together computers and photography.

The digital back of the camera is a fully functional micro-computer, internet and cloud connected, with a Linux Operating System, running on a RaspberryPI Compute Module core.

PONF fact #3

The digital back can be programmed by the user, so it can accomplish specific tasks like:

  • self driving on drones and robots
  • image, pattern recognition
  • external sensors control

And, if you are not into programming, PONF courses and lessons will help you.

PONF Multiback Open Camera

PONF Multiback Open Camera is an innovative reflex camera with two interchangeable backs: one digital and one film.

The digital back, a small but powerful computer, runs a Linux Operating System and is based on Sony full-frame / APS-C sensors. The system is based on RaspberryPI Compute Module.

The film back uses 35mm film canisters.

The camera has a M42 Lens Mount, so you can use your own lenses (but we are developing our own lenses). Of course, you will be able to use many other lenses with mounts other than M42 simply using our adapters.

You can follow the development of the camera on this blog or on the project’s website.
