ok I’m officially mad. I’m going to build a digital rangefinder.

Using Shapeways for rapid prototyping, an NEX-3 or NEX-C3 as a camera base (I’ve ordered both, iirc the NEX-3 might be easier to hack apart), a Canonet Rangefinder (it detaches nicely) and a CCTV 35mm f1.7 (just to test things out).

I’m aiming to fit everything inside a body about the same size as a Canonet or even smaller.

This should be interesting...
