Enhancing a DSLR with Raspberry Pi

This is the perfect intersection of two of my interests, photography and embedded Linux: Limerick, Ireland-based photographer David Hunt recently posted progress photos of his Raspberry Pi-enhanced DSLR battery grip, which he made for his Canon 5D Mark II. The hacked-together DSLR accessory attaches to the bottom of his camera and will eventually let him shoot and transmit photos over WiFi, remote control the camera via tablet or phone, and shoot in a custom time lapse mode. David says he still needs to sort out the power supply, but he’s confident that he’ll be able to figure it out. [via DIYPhotography Flickr Pool]
