DIY Digital Camera (Frank)





Introduction: DIY Digital Camera (Frank)

this is a camera i made out of an old broken 3 megapixle cannon, i replaced its original lens with a "TV zoom lens" from a video camera that was so old its image sensor was in a glass tube. anyway, its a pretty simple project when you break it down, the hardest part is tricking the old digital camera into thinking it still has its original lens.

    Did a built guide ever get put out?


    Where did the instructable go? :(

    is that an out put on the front?

    im dying to know how to make this, i have an ancient sony video player and a broken digital camera HELP!!!!

    Nice project -- but I agree with the others that Inquiring Minds Want To Know more about the details of how this was done.

    (Not directed to you: Sigh. Instructables loves photos. They'll be happy if you post something with pretty pictures and no instructions, but if you try to post something with detailed instructions and no pictures they hold it up with a plea to add something visual. I still don't agree with that policy, given Instructable's stated goal.)

    I am wanting to gut out a digital camera and place inside old film camera any thoughts or tips you might have for me. I really would like to know about the tricking part of the camera lens. Thanks Very nice camera BTW

    This is a very cool looking project.
    I would love to see an actual guide on how to build it.

     Nice Steam Punk Camera. Great job. It is beautiful.

     Nice work.  So how did you trick the camera into thinking it still had its original lens?
