LEX Optical Takes E-Mount Back to Film


LEX Optical started an interesting project for film fans that want to use E-mount glass. I’m curious to see where it goes since this is a one man team project, but there does seem to be some indication that he plans to sell this camera to interested buyers. Hopefully he can produce enough of them, because I am sure there will be a rather large group of people interested in picking on up. This project is definitely a labor of love and speaks to Sony’s growing audience of photographers.

“LEX is the first camera which lets you use your E-Mount lenses with your favorite film emulsions. So far it has taken us more than a year to get this design right. When we are done LEX will be an open source project but we may crowd fund a small batch of devices before opening the design files up.”
