A YouTuber and creator has enhanced the basic GameBoy Digicam by 3D-printing a brand new mount that permits it to make use of Canon EF lenses.
Customizations and modifications to the Nintendo Gameboy aren’t briefly provide because the digicam has been the goal of intelligent inventors for years, however this one could also be one of the enjoyable for photographers. YouTuber Conorsev, identified for his love of automobiles and 3D printing challenges, has printed a video detailing how he was capable of create a 3D printed mount for DSLR lenses to hook up with a Gameboy Digicam.
Within the video, Conorsev states there are a number of issues with the Gameboy Digicam, primarily beginning with the very fact there isn’t a manner outdoors of utilizing the Nintendo branded printer to get the pictures captured with it off of the machine. The excellent news is that’s not the case with slightly DIY and an inexpensive Arduino system.
Utilizing the Arduino code, Conorsev was capable of trick the Gameboy Digicam into considering it was related to the Nintendo Printer and seize the graphic data it was sending to print. Then customers can merely copy that code right into a uncooked information decoder to show it again right into a digital picture file.
From there he then explains the sphere of view that exists with the native Gameboy Digicam is fairly extensive, which is nice for selfies, however not a lot else. So, naturally, the following step is to take every little thing aside and 3D print a mount adapter to exchange the built-in digicam (after some cautious digicam “surgical procedure” and slightly customization) with a choice of Canon EF lenses. The change allowed him to seize rather more inventive photographs on the previous gaming machine.
With this new DIY setup, he was capable of seize photographs utilizing quite a lot of DSLR lenses and create some distinctive factors of view with the basic system. Conorsev even leveraged a custom-made tripod plate to take photographs from farther away utilizing an extended lens on the 0.1-megapixel system. Conorsev says that this setup is “wildly pointless” however in the end extremely enjoyable, offering the Nintendo Gameboy Digicam a variety of zoom and artistic instruments by no means supposed or imagined for the Gameboy system.
