  1. Hi Matt, Yes it is the Cannon Powershot PRO 1 digital SLR. I think haking the wireless remote for the camera would be better, so then we do not have to attck the camera itself. I have not purchased the camera yet but just want to make sure it would be posible. To hack the wire less remote would that require a OPTO switch to convert the signal from the reciever? I am still doing some research myself and if i get any info i will post it. Thanks for the interest. Cheers kimberley Attwell
  2. Hi, I am looking at purchaseing a cannon Pro1 digital camera. It can be opperated via a computer. I want to use it for aeriel photography and would like to know if there is any way i can interface the camera to the laptop remotely. there for i can viw what the camera is looking at on the PV/laptop and opperate it. If this is not able to be done can anyone shed some light on how i can opperate the camera remotely? thanks alot kimberley Attwell
  3. Hi Kilrah, Thank you for the reply i would be glad to give it a try, so it would be really nice if you can give me the details when you are finished and have the time. Thank you every one for all the feed back it is so good to have acsess to all this information and help. Good on you Mr RC Cam. Have a greate xmass and keep safe, Cheers Kimberley Attwell
  4. Hi There, I Ended up useing two voltage regulators and a 12v battery pack. I have one volatge regulator fro the servos and one for theTx and ccd camera and the 12v battery supplys all including the video overlay which is 12v and it works great with on inter ferance at all. Have fun and thank you every one for all the advice. Cheers kimberley Attwell
  5. Hi there, Thank you for the advice i am going to give it a go and do a bit of surgery hay. Thanks guys cheers kimberley attwell
  6. Hello everyone, Please can you give me some advise on the best way to tilt my camera for aeirial photography. At the moment i am useing a standard servo but its travel is limited as i have geared it down to keep it slow and to fit it in. Can i modify the servo to extend its travel? Or is there a better plan. Cheers Kimberley Attwell
  7. Hi Bill, Thank you for your advice, I am going to go about this as you suggested, thanks alot. There is just one thing which i am worried about with all my appliences connected to the same supply will i not have to worry about RF frequences interfering with the servos or the servos interfering with the ccd camera, or shall i just use a couple of filters? Cheers kimberley Attwell
  8. Hello every one, I would like someone to give us a hand with my small problem as i do not have much knowlege in this area. I have a rc helicopter which i am useing for aeriel photography. The camera mount i have built myself and i am also useing a ccd wireless camera. The ccd camera, Rx and servos for pan and tilt run on 4.8 volts. Now this is where the problem is at the moment the rx and servos run off their own supply and the Tx and ccd camera also has its own battery, but if i conect them to the same supply there is some RF frequencey interferance and was wanting to know how to correct this. I am also wanting to use a video overlay and GPS but the video overlay runs on 12volts so what i am wanting to do is to run every thing off the same supply, being 12 volts and then use a dcdc converter to drop the voltage down to 4.8v for the camera and servos as i think it would be better to drop the voltage than to try and convert it higher. Now would i need a filter for each peice of equiptment i am running off the main supply, and would just one dc dc converter be ok. All your sugestions and help are welcome and if there is any thing else i need to add to the circuit please can you advise me. Cheers Kimberley Attwell
