It sounds great doesn’t it? A cartridge that you can slip into your analogue camera to turn it into a digital camera. But while plenty of gadget sites have trumpeted the RE-35 SLR upgrade as the real deal solution for reviving retro cameras, it’s actually a big old set up.
Despite the slick site and the seemingly serious talk of being able to pull the sensor out to take the place of old school film and grab images from the cartridge via USB, it’s a gag. We got suspicious when we noted that it claimed to cram in USB, flash memory and more into the tiny cartridge. Camera fans, you’ve been punked!
