Has anyone ever hacked one of these? I can't seem to find any info anywhere. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

So I have successfully hacked the Sony W560.

Three wire hack plus externals. I've got power,power common, and shutter.

The power/power common turns the camera on/off and power common/shutter takes the pic. Now it's just timing it all. [smile]

Thanks Ralph, yours and Charles videos really helped. You go into quite a bit of detail and that made all the difference.

I wont admit that it took some mistakes to get it right [smile]

And a bite from the flash capacitor, good thing the camera was on the table when it happened and tools in my hand. The tools didn't stay there for long, didn't realize I could throw that far [smile]


BTW it was the Fuji A610 that got me, those two fangs that are taped over - the tape is there for a reason.

Yup, those flash caps can jump up and bite you big time. So far I have been fortunate enough to only drop a couple of cameras when it happened, haven't thrown one against the wall, not yet anyway. [biggrin]

Just wait till a Sony S600 gets you! [redface] Oh and just a tip....don't use your tongue to discharge the capacitor...no matter what these guys tell you...about me and doing it! (no not really but is the big joke here).
