Camera hacking…

I’m doing my first test with my newly ‘hacked’ Canon S5IS 😀 I downloaded some opensource firmware and scripts that run from the SD card and let me do some extra cool things like timelapse… Next step is figuring out how to mount this beast to my bike and then let the video making begin! I might have to hit the bike bath before the sun goes down today…

It’s amazing what you can accomplish with google these days…

Update : My kingdom for… 4 AA batteries!!!

Update 2 : The camera modding portion of the project went really well, but the mount failed around 10 minutes into its maiden voyage. No damage to the camera thanks to a safety lanyard I made at the last minute 🙂
Back to the drawing board!
