Histograms with A70

See this threadexternal link to add histogram capability to your A70 (and possibly some other A-series cameras?).

apologies in advance for the multiposting ( I actually searched for "cobble" to find the thread but didn't see the sticky!) I thought folks might be interested in this:
Just cobbled together an adapter for my portable HDD ("Tripper") so I can use the readliy available BP-511 - of which I'm surely carrying a couple of charged spares at any given time. The mounting "plate" is designed for the Inca brand battery charger and needs only a 3 terminal regulator added (LM7805) to drop the 7.4V from the battery down to 5Volts that the HDD needs. simple is good.... :D

Hey guys, I've been reading up on how you can use a universal remote controller to act as....well, a remote control (RC-1 or 5) for a camera with IR capability. Does anyone happen to know the Rebel XT (350D) IR code?

Is there any hack that will make a G3 remote (WL-DC100) work on a rebel xt?

Here's a link to my lens mods on Flickr.external link

I modded them to get tilt/swing movements out of them. My favorite is the mamiya 55mm as it has a huge image circle for a 1dm2

For anyone interested in panoramic photography, here's a good, cheap pano head for your tripod:

I found that my TI-83 graphing calculator can control my 400D, but I have yet to figure out how to actually perform useful functions with it. Honestly, I probably never will, but if anyone else is interested, it could be a neat project.

trolling an old thread... but I have an 83 collecting dust and that would be a cool project. or maybe use my 89 for it

I did a "hack" repair job on my 300D shutter recently. See the thread below...

Guys, is there a mod to convert the 350D timer from 10 sec to 2 seconds? I barely use the 10sec timer. A 2 sec will be so much more useful for me.

not entirely sure if there's the option on the 350D but on the 30D if you have mirror lockup enabled and use the auto timer the delay is only two seconds.
