Everything you ever wanted to know about Cameras
but your Camera Store and Manufactures never told you.
Modifications, Tips, Tricks, Hacks, and other innovations to take you and your photography well beyond what the camera company intended.

Hi folks, Right now this thread will be elevated to sticky status, thanks Cyberdine, hopefully with enough activity, one day it just might get its own topic in the 'equipment' section. For now we will keep it in 'talk about photography' since we will encompass more than just EOS cameras... (though we are talking about equipment)

I got my Digital-EOS in December 04'. Since then I have been very
excited with the camera and the potential for modding. The nature of digital is perfect for expiremental modifications/hacks, you get instant feedback and can essentally shoot unlimited test shots to fine tune your efforts. The EOS platform has other advantages as well. It been around for some time now, in the film format since '88, so many people have been comming up with mods since then. As I find them I will post them and link them in this section.

Please feel free to add your own!
Say Hi and what you are shooting, and any projects you are involved with.

Way back when, I started a yahoo club called "Guerrilla Camera" it encompasses all photo mods, but had a high precentage of EOS and digicam material, ideas, and projects. It is still an active Yahoo Group, but has slowed down in pace as changes at yahoo groups have made it dificult to easily use. Hopefully POTN will be a better forum for the exchange of these ideas.

Tonight I got my 300D to fire on command, from my PDA that is.

No camera shake for me, then.

One of the guys on my race team has a pretty cool suction cup mount hacked together with a tilt/swivel head on a backplane...here it is on my car with a video camera pointed back at me. Can't wait to put my beater Rebel on the mount for ice racing this year and get some still shots with my navigator firing the remote shutter release! :)

Home made off camera flash cord for Canon 244T Flash today.

Works a treat! Total cost; $0.

Simpley cut up a phone cord, add a tad of solder, and your on your way to cool photos!

RS60-E3 Extension Cord.

If you want to get farther away from the camera but don't want to use the RC-1 IR remote the RS60 remote is kind of short. I have on several occasions wanted to do this and still be behind the camera and out of the frame. To solve this problem I took my RS60 with me to my local Radio Shack (an electronic parts store here in the states). For about $17 with tax I picked up the adapters and cord to give myself a 20-foot extension cord. All you need are 1.) 274-397 Audio adapter 3/32" to 1/8" 1.) 274-373 Audio adapter 1/8" to 3/32" and 1.) 42-2562 20FT stereo headphone extension cord. The 3/32" to 1/*" plugs in to the camera's remote jack, then plug the extension cord into that, then plug the 1/8" to 3/32" into the extension cord, and finally the RS60 into that.
