This is the last one of my 'Things that make life easier' series, I published in the last few days.
It's very simple, but most of the time the simple things are the most helpful.

I always used the big 10 pin jack for programming my AVRs because my programmer also had the 10pin jack.

With the time lapse module for the rollei camera a new requirement came up: Space. I wanted to make it as small as possible, so I changed from 10pin to a 6 pin jack.

This is how to make a working connection between a 10pin and a 6pin jack.

You need one of each jack (6pin and 10pin) and a 6-wire flat cable.

Step 1: Pin assignment

Before we start it is important to obey the pin assignment of the two jacks as they differ a bit.
Take a look at the pin assignments of the first pictures and the colors of the flat cable in the second picture.
That gives us:
RED           MISO
Orange      VCC
yellow        SCK
green         MOSI
blue           Reset
violet          GND
