The S600 is now faster and quieter

19 posts in this topic

Well, we now finally have a real reason to do a four wire mod on the S600.

 

I did basically the same thing I did with the S40 http://hagshouse.ipbhost.com/forums/index....c=24139&hl=

 

The mods seem to save .4 seconds and noise is a lot less. I won't get the mods posted tonight but they are a lot easier than the S40 mods and I should be able to post tomorrow.

 

The downsides are the same as the S40 but nothing too difficult to overcome.

 

Next I will try to find the lens feedback and see if I can get the lens to not move at all.

 

Wish me luck!

Pretty neat stuff Mark if you can find a way to fool the cam and leave the lens open all the time that would be a great hack. Thanks for all the R & D

Thanks for all the nice comments but keep in mind this is really a group effort from a lot of members.

 

All of the board manufactures on this site have been extremely helpful and there are non suppliers that dump a lot of money in to research as well.

 

It is cool to watch the things that can happen with this stuff when there isn't a big fight over who thought of the ideas first.

 

FZNYupr has some additional ideas about how to speed up the process more that we will be trying out tonight and there is also some work going into finding the feedback for the lens and trying to disable it from moving at all.

 

One other camera I would like to try this with is the DSC-W5. It is already close to the speed of a P41 and with Ghoots no SA hack, it might be a reall good camera. Oh yeah, the IR glass is easy to get out too. This camera is probably my favorite camera for speed.

Here is the hack for the S600. I haven't created a video showing the difference but there is a real difference. I have some stereo jacks on order that I hope will allow easier use of the cam outside the case.

Very nice :D For those of you asking if a Yeti board can be used in a pipe through, here s proof. It makes a Sweeeet unit. You can turn the rapid pic off with a dip switch and you don't lose your lowest time delay. The range and speed is awesome!
