Oooooor you could just buy a digital camera...

Wow, I see why might someone do this, but do you really wanna waste 20 bucks for the camera, at least 5 bucks for the wires, and obtain the skills to solder well, just so you get a really sucky digital camera? I'd just get a high quality one.

ummmmm yah.

Did pricing on sites that sell the equipment he listed... around here that stuff would run me upwards of 45 bux. Then he takes into mind that everyone has a soldering iron, for the people who dont then that would cost them another 10 bux. More than half the price it would take to just buy a bottom of the line digital camera from the electronics store.

I mean, if you were a real cheap person this may be a good idea, or if you had the money and time to waste on a rainy day project. Otherwise it seems to me to be a bit silly.

sounds like a fun project to me.

does anybody know what kind of resolution those cameras have? I might consider this for my 4 yr old daughter (she's been asking for her own camera). Looks like a pretty simple project

ZOMG! HAX! BAN HIM!!

Lol that guy said at the end "it could also be a good spy camera" HOW? lol. As opposed to spending a few bucks and buying a "spy" camera.

Hi, let me takes pictures of you with this loud shuttered, flash enabled disposable camera...ah ha you didn't see me do it, I'm a spy.

Does this guy not believe in pauses between sentences?

It's pretty slick that somebody figured out how to do this, but realistically it does seem a bit pointless. In fact, it seems pointless that there're such things as one-time-use digital cameras in the first place. I mean, what the hell, you know?
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 4/14/07 - 6:25:53 AM EST (GMT-5)
this is good for the hacking type's of people.
I can see me doing this if I really really needed a camera.
But I don't, and I have a good one already.

What?
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 4/14/07 - 9:56:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
They sell disposable digital cameras? I mean, with an lcd screen and everything?
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 4/14/07 - 10:08:26 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think paying a few extra 10s isn't that much of a hassel compared to hacking into something.

Hmmmmmm

1.3MP, it's small and it's only $30. There were cheaper ones on pricegrabber as well...but only like .3 mp

Disposable digital cameras are such a waste of resources.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 4/14/07 - 12:13:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think that's great. Nice hack.

Sheesh...you guys make it sound like heart surgery. I really think this is a cool, simple little hack that eliminates the need to throw the camera in the garbage when you don't need to (how en-vi-ro-men-ta-ly unfriendly!!), and plus, you can "stick it to the man" by re-using a digital camera that was really meant for a one time use.

I agree with Manorrd, though I also think it would just be easier to buy a regular camera.
