UPDATE: Digi Swap, the brand new device that can breathe new life into old film cameras using your smartphone, has now gone live on Kickstarter.

Originally revealed back in January, the accessory enables you to attach your iPhone to a wide range of film cameras including the popular Nikon FM2, Canon AE-1, Olympus OM-1 (no, not the new Olympus OM-1) and Leica SL just to name a few. Though we're sure that anyone using it with any Leica camera will be kicked out of the community before you can say "Digi Swap".
