digital camera? Answered

I have seen somewhere a cut down digital camera rehoused in a wooden box. the thought strikes me- I have several redundant Olympus lenses could I successfully take a point and shoot digital camera, remove the lens, mount the camera body in a box and add my Olympus lenses to the front to make an exchangeable lens digital camera? I realize I would need to get the lens to CCD distance right but that doesn't seem to be all that difficult - I can engineer an adjustable mount if necessary. it seems a pity to have all these lenses and nothing to do with them. Opinions guys?

Digital sundial

Http://www.mojoptix.com/ This guy just made an incredible 3D printed shadow casting time piece. My question Is: can you figure out how to slice it in 1mm slices so that I can cut it on my cheap laser cutter? First, I just don't have the mental capacity for such.  Second, my software is terrible and I need it in black with white background. And can even be a PDF.  I appreciate it and and would make an instructable to help anyone else do the same thing.  Thanks

Digital Shower

I am planning and researching ideas on creating a DIY digital shower system.  The idea is to have an android device (Tablet, or old galaxy SII phone for now) installed along with an ardruino or some hardware interface to control the plumbing.  I would also like to use the android device for music weather etc. in the shower, but all that is built in. The only puzzle with the android device is getting it to interface with the hardware, and waterproofing it while still keeping the touchscreen functionality.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Digital crossover..?

Well people, since no one want's to help me 'Build' a hardware crossover, perhaps someone on here might know of how I could use one of my spare laptops and feed my input signal to my amp into the mic port and equalize it/cut off the high freq's and send it back out the headphone jack. Surely there's some kind of program that would give me control over the output signal like giving it a sharp cutoff at 60hz or something like that. I'm tired of trying to figure out what to do with these laptops laying around, so that's why I'm asking would it be possible to turn my dell (2ghz 512mb of ram, simple audio card) into a digital crossover with even a visual output would be nice. Anyone have any suggestions on how to do this?!?? Thanks!

I have what they call a bridge camera that uses a small LCD viewer (as well as a large colour LCD screen) and as far as I can tell uses an electronic shutter.  It seems to work well and is reliable.

Digital Patches

You may be asking yourself (or everyone else around you), what are these "digital patches" I hear so much about? The answer is quite simple, digital patches are online greeting cards that you can send to other users which will show up on their profile page as a small picture icon. When you click on these little icons, it will display a larger sized image with a personal message explaining why the patch was awarded. There are a number of default images you can choose from, or you can upload your own.For instance, if you really like a project someone has posted, you can send them a digital patch to let them know how awesome it is.Or if someone subscribes to your feed, you can thank them by sending them a digital patch.Or perhaps you just want to send lots of people virtual cookies for a good time. You can use digital patches to do that too!Or if you want to start a club to honor everyone who has ever posted how to make a pocket protector, you can do that!Or you can use it as a way to say hello to old friends by sending them a patch with their two favorite things.Or perhaps you just want to brighten someone's day with some flowers.Whatever is your impetus, by signing up for a pro account, you can receive a number of digital patches to distribute as you see necessary.

Digital clock hack

I've been trying to do more DIY stuff recently, so I figured I would start out with an easy project. Basically, I was wondering if it is possible to modify a standard digital clock so it could display different messages through an lcd display based on the current time. Since most clocks have an alarm feature, I thought this would be pretty easy to do, but then again I could be completely wrong. I know how to solder and such, so I shouldn't have too many technical problems if I get a push in the right direction. Also, I know how to do a bit of coding, and I'm good at adapting so I'm sure I could find out some way to make this work. Any help is much appreciated.

Digital Out on an iMac?

So I have an iMac, running Vista. It's late 2009 version, newest with the exception of the new 27" models. I'm trying to connect the mini-digital out to the SPDIF  in on my audio amp. I bought a cable, and an adapter. It just doesn't work... The adapter works fine, seeing how it's just a hollow piece of metal and plastic. The cable is also working fine - I've tested it with my TV. The iMac has output, you can see it on the other end of the fiber. Everything I've checked seems to be working, and there's only one possible explanation I can think of. The iMac is transmitting with a different format. I'm new to optical audio cables, so If there is only one format, aka SPDIF and TOSLINK are the same, please let me know. And if they are not, can someone inform me on what I'm doing wrong and how to fix it?

My program is limited to what I could find online for an ammeter/ voltmeter sketch. I wanted help or some guidance in figuring out how to use the rotary encoder to 'set' a voltage (visible on the lcd) and when i press the button, i send a certain signal to my DAC which is connected to my psu circuit. and i wanted to be able to switch over from voltage 'setting' to current 'setting'.

Digital Conversion of Folding Camera?

Ever since i saw the 'ible on converting a land camera to take 35 mm film, I figured there had to be a way to take this even further. I'm even thinking the first baby step shouldn't be too hard- simply mounting a digital camera to the frame. Now, it would be a little more complex than this- taking the lcd screen off of the base, and putting it on the back of the camera, mounting the actual machinery of the camera where the original lens was, and perhaps even mounting buttons (or on some digital cameras, the wheels for 'scene selection' on the base of the land camera. The only problem I can find with this simple conversion is the fact that it seems most digital cameras use micro ribbons now, which would be (as far as I can tell) incredibly hard to splice and extend (which would be necessary to get the lcd screen, and other components mounted on the frame of the land camera). Does anyone have any ideas for this, or are is my goal too lofty? THanks.

I was getting ready to take some pics of the neighbors new sports car and he was showing off,  spinning the tires when it happened. The filter just all the sudden shattered.
