The DIY Digital Camera Shooting Rig. What, you mean like the best way to get a hands free shooting setup is to lug around a PowerBook with you? You’re kidding, Romaine, right? Do you get to take natty shots of the nurse as you get wheeled into casualty with a broken back after a few hours? Eh? Do ya? Still it’s a neat hack, anyways. Harrumph!
This rig allows you to take photographs by saying “Take shot” into the microphone of a Bluetooth headset. The picture itself is taken by an iSight fixed on my shoulder. As voice recognition is not always perfect, especially in a noisy environment like a city, you’ll hear “Picture taken” in the headset if everything went fine. Both the headset and the iSight are connected to a 12″ PowerBook tucked into the backpack.
