Splicing and extending a cable connecting a lens and sensor module to the camera's main body? Answered
For a while i had this odd idea, of separating the lens sensor module from the Contour camera body,
so i could have it inside the helmet front vent hole, and the main body on the back of the helmet.
So im thinking of splicing a longer cable in between. an IDE cable perhaps? It is shielded, pretty much the perfect match
The image is what inside the camera between the lens module and the main body.
The idea was to cut that blue bundle, and to splice the ide cable in (wire by wire)
So the question are
- Is the IDE cable a good choice, or i ought to use other cables.
- What are my chances for failure/success? The camera aint worth much anymore, but i dont really want to break it.
