These Vintage Cameras Died So Your IPhone Could Have A Hip Place To Dock

It's getting harder and harder to find film for older SLR cameras. So Etsy seller LaboratorioAltieri guts them and gives them a new lives as stylish USB docks for iOS devices. Retro camera enthusiasts might want to look away.

Made from old Pentax and Minolta cameras that are still in great condition, the docks range in price from $US40 to $US50 — presumably depending on how much the pawn shop originally charged for them. Since they're retrofitted with a standard Apple dock connector, they should work with most iOS devices, though, balancing an iPad on top without any additional support is probably pushing your luck.
