11$ digital camera for AP

lots of tinkering to get it to work.... but thats what everyone is into here anyway.....



only if there were a way to trigger it without a servo...

I bet is is about the same quality as the apitec cameras out there.. and for 11 bucks it wont be all that bad if it eats dirt....

fun rainy/ snowy day 11 dollar project...

The local Longs Drug Store chain also introduced a couple of these disposible digitals. Cost is under $10. It uses a different chipset than the Dakota variants, so it would require some reverse engineering. I would love to try one out. But as much as I like to hack, this sort of thing is just too much work for my sparse free time. If you do the Dakota camera (sold by Ritz and Walgreens) then please post a full how-to summary that is geared towards our application.

I set up this page several months ago on hacking the Dakota. Members of my club have followed the directions for the hack. I made three of them for my kids.
