This is a new build that I completed last week for Jeremi up north in Canada using a Sony WX220 which is a 18.2 megapixel point and shoot camera. He sent me the camera to see if I could hack it and if it would make a good trail camera. The setup has 2 wireless slave flashes, camera side has 6 AAs for camera externals, Safari Camera Controller with Flash Backpacker powered by 3 AAs as well as the transmitter for the wireless slave flashes.  Camera was set to Program mode, Fill Flash and ISO 200. I had the camera and flashes set out for 4 nights over some corn as bait to see how it all worked. I positioned the wireless slave flashes so they would be in the shots so I could make sure they were actually firing.

The camera hack is a little difficult to do Joe and there is practically no room inside to route wires. You definitely can't use anything larger than 30 awg or you will never get the camera back together. When I have time I will get a video posted for the hack, I filmed it while hacking the camera used in the build but got to edit it yet.
