    Well, I have the core of the website complete. I will be testing new camers within the next few months, so ther ewill be a section of the web site to come that will be like a "Consumers Report".

  2. Sounds good... I'll be watching/learning...
    Have any ideas for a homemade camera?

    I have read up. researched & studdied this big time. Here is what I've came up with: It's not worth the trouble (unless your doing it just as a techie thing), I visited a guys website that basically does what I do, he has all htese cameras & tests them out, I think he gets paid or at least gets the cameras for free though. He said unless you spend $500 it's not worth getting a digital cam. He said like everyone else he thought the idea sounds great, but in a basic dig cam ($200-300 price range) the pics are grainy & no where near the quality of a cheap 35mm cmaera w/ good film. He said yes, you have to go thrpugh the hassell of developing the film, etc... but he recomends agasint dig cams. He did say, he has seen sev "homebrew" cams of good quality, but he mentioned the are no where near as hassel free as people tend to make them out to be., He said one wrong touch to the circuit board & the board plus the dig came is fried. Most decent looking "homebrews" I've seen go for $400-500. If your looking for a site that has great step by step instructions on how to build one, try www.jesseshunting.com Let me know if you go dig or make your own.
  4. I've seen Jessie's instructions before and use to know, forum now dead, some people who've used them... I remember they said they worked great and were much cheeper then purchasing a new one...
    I was just looking to see if maybe you had other instructions...

    There was a decent homebrew cam on EBAY. It was very, very nice. I think it was around $400.00, should still be on there.
