Six megapixel CW key

by OH6DC

An ordinary digital camera has lots of useful features. But you can't key your CW transmitter with it unless you make these modifications:

First take all those photos you need to take, because afterwards it may not be possible. Then remove the covers.

Locate the shutter button switch.

Solder thin insulated copper wires to the switch.

Put the covers back and drill a hole for keying cable. Make the necessary connections.

Solder a 6.3mm plug to the cable end and start using your photographic CW key.

Now comb your hair and take a look at this video clip:
