It's taken through a diffuser and shrunk down to the tiny sensor within. Should not be a surprise that it is not sharp. Clever, almost like a Speed-Magny.

Pictures taken with my iPhone through the viewfinder of my Pen F look about the same. The screen in a Pen F is all matte, what you need for viewfinder photography.

I have seen this around,

Maybe the only way to have a digital Nikon S2 regardless of the 90’s webcam IQ

Hey, it is being offered for the Leica M1 as well as Nikon FE2. Leica M1? Do you think it would fit any other Leica Ms?

Funny. It does remind me of the Speed Magny. But Leica M1? Typo or ?
