Olympus D-380 Help

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a parts list, wiring diagram, and layout for an Olympus D-380 homebrew. I would like to use the external plug on the camera to power both the camera and control board if possible with a rechargeable 6 volt sealed battery. Any help would be appreciated.

I would connect to the power connections inside the camera. When you open the camera, just to the right of the viewfinder are the connections. They are marked "battery" on the board and are covered with some yellowish hot glue. I pull the glue off and connect there and then cover with some tape. Most D380s don't go to sleep when connected through the external power port thus they use a lot of power. Also I think you must have at least 6 volts when connected there, if your battery would start to drain and drop below 6 volts the camera will shut down. Her is a post with alot of info.
