Chinese inventor hacks an old TV camera to shoot 2.7K using a GoPro inside

At the BIRTV show in Beijing a Chinese inventor was showing his prototype for a GoPro Hero 3+ fitted into the body of an old Sony tape based ENG TV camera. The GoPro's lens is removed and the TV camera's lens is utilised instead. Amazingly it actually works. The image can be displayed in the viewfinder, one of the camera's buttons can be used to access the menu and a SD card is used for recording.

Unfortunately the picture quality of the sample we were shown leaves an awful lot to be desired.
