Saw a post on Hags that this was an easy camera to hack and was 6v powered. I bought one before looking for a hack tutorial, now I'm stuck. Apparently easy has a different meaning to some people...
If anyone can point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it. My Google-fu is drawing a blank. Don't make me pay Charles or Ralph to get it hacked, cause I will!! haha

If you can't find the hack and saw someone say it was an easy hack then I'd probably get in touch with them and ask.

I haven't seen that one before and didn't find any hack info doing a web search. It is possible that whitetail whittle did the hack on that one, he seems to like the Canon cameras in 6 volt design, perhaps PM him and see if he knows anything about it. If not I would be willing to take a look at it but as always, when hacking a new camera there are no guarantees that bad things can't/won't happen to it.

Sweet! It can wait till you're back and settled into normal routine again.
Some idiot proof pictures for the slow kids in class would be great...

here are some pics of the hack for basically all the A6## models.

use small diameter wires. 30ga.

the hardest part is routing the wires out of the cam.

Alright, got the hack. Now I have a new problem. How do you bypass the flipout LCD screen? It won't take a picture unless the screen is flipped out and powered on. I wasn't paying close enough attention when I was playing with the camera before I hacked it to know if it was like that before or not. I assume so, the hack is working fine.

Never ran into that problem. I rotate the screen so it is showing when you are looking at the cam. I do not flip it out to the side.

haha. I didn't know the screen would flip all the way around. I was afraid I was gonna twist the screen off so I was stopping at 90deg each direction. I don't think the previous owner ever flipped it over either, the midway catch was really stiff.
Man I really do look like the slow kid now...

It's ok. Most cameras don't have that LCD option.

Glad you got it to work

question for Whitetail Whittle, I put this one on the back burner.

You can use any control board for this Camera.

I have created my own control board. That is best with this camera.

My control board allows me to use a 6v sla battery to power the entire build. I put rechargeable AA batteries in camera and that is all the batteries you need. The SLA will keep the rechargeables topped off.
My control board also allows me to attach the the camera external battery wires to the board so the 6v sla power will keep the camera batteries topped off. (There is a terminal block on the board for this)

Also I am able to use a slave flash with the camera for added light and use the 6v sla to power it.
My board has everything you need for it.


But other boards will work as well. Just have to use more batteries. Ralph's would be good with the slave backpacker.
