In his blog Today's Tomorrow, Jason Bognacki shows you how he's managed to get his almost centenary folding camera working together with a modern Canon 5D MkII. The photos it generates look antiquated, warm and yet they're remarkably crisp.

Well almost... I've had this Piccolette Contessa-Nettel (1919) folding camera for ages. Its been a great piece of photo history sitting on my shelf. Was curious if it could make pictures again, so I hacked it onto my 5D. Here are the results. WOW!!! IT'SALIVE!!!

Permission to use the above image was kindly permitted by Jason.
