Very important:
The photos taken by I’m BackMF presented here were treated with Photoshop, because, as already happens with modern digital devices, tiny hair or dust can disturb the images. It is very important, before you take pictures, to make sure that the surface of the focusing screen which will record the image is clean. But bear in mind that you should always treat these photos as taken with a film camera and not with the latest generation of digital cameras!

“I’m Back was designed not only for professional photographers but for ordinary people who are passionate about photography and for technology from old cameras, for anyone who wants to have fun like they used to, even when the photo was not good and it was a source of anger and also a laugh. Good times!”

Note for professional photographers: 
“I’M BACKMF®  was created with the intention of reusing the old analog in a digital way, but maintaining a “retro” aspect in the photos thanks to the focusing screen. It is not intended to have the quality of a digital camera of the last generation, therefore, it is not an accessory to be at par with a digital or even an analog. I’m back given a unique result in its genre. Similar solutions, like “Pinhole”, “Lomography”, give photos with the use of a “Scanner” and another art form, yes, the art of photography is after all an art form and not something to be judged by the number of pixels or any less.”

Quick start guide:

Mount the digital back into your old medium format camera. Adjusts the height of the focusing screen to the shutter. Insert the Micro SD card. Turn on the I’m BackMF. Focus, adjust the aperture and click first the “OK” button and after your camera. Select the “Tools” icon (bottom right). Select from the list “WiFi”. Download the I’m Back app to your smartphone. Connect your smartphone to the WIFI (pw: 12345678). Open the I’m Back app and click “Connect Camera”. This way, you can view the images directly on your smartphone. Remove the Micro SD to transfer the data to your computer, or connect the I’m BackMF® via the USB data cable.
