Review: Hacking Digital Cameras

Slashdot has nice book review of Hacking Digital Cameras. The book review is carried out by Daniel.

I came across this book via the author’s website www.camerahacker.com. I was interested in making a pinhole lens at the time so I picked up the book. Disclaimer: I’m NOT a hacker by nature. I only did a hack on a lens cover. Most of the hacks in here are for those with a better relationship with screwdrivers, drills and soldering irons than I have. I don’t think this book was intended for me, so keep that in mind when reading my review.

A quick list of the types of hacks in the book are as follows.

1: Hacking Cameras — (triggers, tripods, raw data, power, remote control and updated firmware)
2: Hacking Lenses — (accessory adapters, changing magnification, pinhole, lens extension, macro adapters)
3: Creative Photography Hacks — (filters, infrared, and removing infrared blocking)
4: Building Fun Camera Tools — (car mount, headrest mount, bicycle spy cam, stabilizer, flash bracket, monopod, and studio light)
5: Flash Memory Hacks — (CF Type I to PC Card Type II, removing microdrives)
6: Appendices — (Soldering Basics, Circuit Symbols, Glass Cutting Basics, Photographer’s Glossary, Index)
