New I’m Back35. You asked we did it!

Thanks to all our backers I’M BACK® 35 became true. It’s also thanks to the massive feedback from our supporters and together with hard work that I’M BACK® 35 is evolving and improving significantly since the first version. “I’m Back35®” works with a great number of models and it has a Z X Y regulation which allows for adjusting the F stop (24X36mm) which is placed behind the shutter. The camera is linked to the device through a Flash Sync cable. To take a picture after adjusting the camera, all you need is to turn it on and choose one of the three picture options from the menu. Color, sepia, and black and white, Photos or Videos.


Manual mode: You choose the shutter speed and aperture however you like and enjoy your camera as if you were using a roll of analog film. I’m Back35® records the result, good or bad, it’s up to you! You don’t need a sync cable connecting the I’m Back35® to your analog camera, but now the I’m Back35® has a digital sync system via a sync button. You proceed like this: a- Put the object in focus with your camera B – Place your thumb on the “OK” button on I’m Back and your thumb, as usual, on your camera’s trigger. C- When you’re ready to shoot, click your thumb on the “OK” button on I’m Back35® and click on your camera button (you have 2 seconds to do this). D – Your analog camera just took a digital photo! To check the photo click on the display (play) and visualize your photo. Is important; To take more photos, always go back to the main page for the photo function. Automatic mode: In this mode, you set your camera at “B” (Bulb) or “T” speed and you can see the image through the I’m Back35® display in “Live view”. To take a photo, just keep the shutter of the analog camera open, and click on the “OK” button on I’m Back35® and your photos will be registered. With the automatic function, it is possible to make a “sequence of 3 or 10 photos” photos per second with the “Burst” function. The automatic live view function is also important for you to record beautiful videos with 16mm flavor! New 16mp IMX 206 Sony sensor, touch screen, full menu, ISO control (100 to 1800), Burst (3 to 10 photos per second), Video, Video slow motion, EV, Color photos, black and white, and sepia JPG and RAW B&W photos. Wi-Fi connection and therefore with the possibility to connect your smartphone and transfer the photos or use the display as a live view. The I’m Back combines the best of both worlds, analog and digital. Very important: The photos taken by I’m Back 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 BACK35®  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.”
