    First Homebrew Finished

    That's the plan. Sometimes I don't out there for a few weeks so I'm hoping it holds up. With a 4 gig card I think I'll be okay.

    First Homebrew Finished

    Thanks for the compliments everyone. It was a LONG time building. I was apprehensive about each step, but all of y'alls help made it possible.

    Maybe another L14, or an E50. I haven't decided yet. I have both, so just gotta figure it out.

    First Homebrew Finished

    Okay, I finally finished my first camera and got it out in the woods. It's a large Wal-Mart case, a L14 Camera with (4) external D's, and a Yeti board. Concealment and size weren't an issue with me so the camo isn't very good, but it took the shine off of the black coat. I included pics of the camera and a couple of pics of hogs and coyotes. It was only out in the woods for a few days so there are no pics of deer yet, sorry. Once again...thanks everyone.

    L14 Build

    Yep, that fixed the problem. I soldered the jumpers BC and now it seems to work as designed. I'm just waiting to get my glass lenses in so I can finish the first build. It's been quite an experience so far. I already have two other cameras (another L14 and an E50) that I will be starting on before too long. When I get the first one up and running I'll post pics. Thanks again everyone.

    L14 Build

    I checked the jumpers and they are soldered AB EF, which is what the manual says to have jumpered for Samsung cameras. Do I need to desolder the AB and then solder the BC then? Would that be the issue? Does it make a difference where the Common wire is connected to the board (Common Power or Common Shutter)? I connected to Common Power on the board. Could that be the issue? Also (forgive my ignorance on the issue), what is the best method of desoldering the connection? I haven't had this issue before. Thanks for your help.

    L14 Build

    I may have found what I missed, but would love some reassurance before I do it. The manual mentions soldering jumper AB and EF. Is that what I was missing?? But, I'm confused. It sounds like they are talking about 4 wires to be connected. I only have three on the hack - Power, Shutter, and Common.

    L14 Build

    I'm just finishing up my first L14 build with a Yeti board and external power. Everything worked fine when tested by touching the power, shutter, and common leads before hooking it up to the board. The camera would come on and then when I connected the shutter to the common, it would fire a picture. When I hooked it up to the board it powered up, but doesn't take pictures. Was I supposed to solder jumper settings on the board? Any help would be appreciated.

    Mounting Camera In First Build

    I bought a large WalMart case and was thinking of using it. It's going on private land so camo and size aren't really a concern.
  11. Okay. I've hacked my first camera, a L14 (finally, with a lot of help form members) and bought a Yeti board which is being shipped and I have a snorkel. My biggest concern now is the mounting of the camera into the box. Do you use foam in front (between the camera face and the box)? What do you use to keep the camera stationary in the box? Thanks for all of y'alls help. It's been fun and I can't wait to put it all together.

    Power Solder Point For L14

    Thanks for the help Sanford17. I finally managed to find time to try your scrape method. It worked like a charm. I've got the external power hack completed as well as the mod for the L14. Now I just have to order the board and put it all together. Thanks to all for their help.

    Template For L14

    I haven't seen a template for a L14 anywhere. Does anyone have one that I can print? Thanks again for all of y'alls help.
