    Loss of a Hagshouse Member

    I was one of the many people that Chris helped years ago. I was thinking of him today and sadly, just read of his passing. He was a great guy and inspiration in all that I did and continue to do today. I hope peace has come to the family and that they realize all of the lives he touched.

    Raspberry Pi Anyone?

    This is cool stuff. Any recent activity using RasPi for automated uploads?
  3. My Jazz camera died. Do I need to get my Bigfoot board reprogrammed to run a pretty pink DXG?

    Eyefi Sd Card

    Anyone ever used one of these wireless SD cards to get pics/video from their Jazz or DXG? It would be nice to not physically touch the camera. Obviously would take being in a wifi area. And would likely eat batteries. But I'm grooving on the concept..... http://www.eye.fi/

    Electronics 123 Exchanger Working Voltages

    Joe - is your scope an automotive scope? Probably not an inexpensive item for a poor home hobbyist....but I'd like to have one!

    I'm Back

    Hi guys, I'm back. Nice to see many of the old names but real sad to read about the fellas that have moved to a better place. I'm in the process of acquiring a property near the Allegheny river. Likely no electricity, but possible slow internet if I can build a strong antenna. Would like to remotely have a DXG build upload video to somewhere (internet, DVR, etc) so I don't have to be there onsite or climb the tree to pull the memory card. Any ideas on how I could build this? Thanks! Jchick

    Dyi Remote Ip Cam

    Has anyone done anything more on this project? I am buying some property with no electricity...and no cell phone access. Open to ideas about sending the picture/video to a PC or some kind of DVR for later viewing/downloading. Thanks! J

    Scheduled Upload

    That gives me some ideas. Nothing solid yet, but worth digging into. Thanks!

    Scheduled Upload

    Help me not reinvent the wheel. I'd like to periodically upload pics and video from my trailcam to a PC or to the web. That way I don't have to go pull the memory card and manually transfer pics. I have a trailcam that is close enough to get a WIFI signal, but not close enough to give it AC power. I don't have big enough batteries to run it all the time like a webcam. I did something like this using a VCR and a transmitter years ago, and I think 212 did something similar. Times have changed and digital stuff is cheap now. I think I've seen ideas floating around for how to do this, I'd be OK with using a PicAxe. Anyone ever built such a thing? Thanks for the replies !

    Jazz Dv150 Value?

    Was it this one....?? I found out that it's not really a DV150. http://www.hagshouse.com/forums/index.php?...st&id=37732

    Jazz Lcd

    Is there a way to turn off the LCD on a Jazz to preserve battery life?

    Average Price To Build?

    Maybe part of the decision could be how often you check the unit and pull videos off the unit. Memory and battery capacity needs to be considered. I just looked on my unopened DXG - takes up to an 8GB SDHC class 6 SD card. Egbert - how many minutes of HD video will that hold? I can't remember the maximum memory size of the Jazz or what class card it needs to be. I'd like to know that as I need to buy a bigger card for it.

    Jazz Voltage

    Geez, that posting was exactly what I was looking for. Looks like you've already been down this road. Thanks Ron!

    Jazz Voltage

    Will the Jazz work with 3.6 volts as the supply? I don't want to let any magic smoke out. It sure doesn't like 2.4V. I'd like to use three rechargeable in series. I suppose I could use a diode inline to drop it closer to 3 volts.

    Jazz Voltage

    So qty3@1.2 V NiMH would be OK without the dropping diode?

    Jazz Dv150

    Don't know actually, must be some sort of knock-off. It doesn't look exactly like the 152. Or the 151. Or the 'original' 150.

    Jazz Dv150

    Seemed like a good deal so I bought two of them at a Big Lots in Ohio. They are different though, maybe a DV150.2 or something. They've got a flip screen. Anybody hacked this yet?

    Rechargable Batteries?

    I've got a pretty sweet charger that can test the actual capacity of a NIMH battery. If someone really wants to know how accurate the rating is, send me a battery or two and I can test them.

    Ebay Dxg's

    Ya, I bought one of those this morning. After drooling all over Buckshot164's build, I just had to have one!

    Jazz Finally Done

    Thanks to the excellent instruction from the guys at the camfest, I've finally got a usable Jazz build. I skipped the Kit 98 for now and just ran the mic to the bottom of the case. Do I need to waterproof the mic somehow?
