I reprogram the Picaxe chip to work with the DSLR. Part four of this series will have the script with the correct timing and connection method.

This is very interesting, how much money will you have in this completed build? I was just looking at some of those cameras on ebay and they aren't very cheap. So, there is no hack? just plug it in the side? Is that port on the camera for a remote or something? It seems that several other guys on here have been working with these as well. If your not using auto focus, how do you set it up? Are you powering on the camera, and then getting the focus you want, and then you put it in its case? If so, it stays powered on until the batts die? Sorry for all the questions but I personally have never even held one of these cameras, so I dont know how they work. Sounds like some very interesting innovations you guy are conquering, and I may just have to copy your methods. Would be cool to see some of the pics from these cams. I'll bet you probably get some super high quality pics.

Really a very simple build. No camera modifications. There are many ways to set up the camera trap. Myself I only use manual focus. I focus out of the housing at the same distance as when the camera is in the box. Then put the camera in the box, turn it on and crawl through the target area. I look at the pics and make sure it's what I want and then close the box.

The camera is always on. The Rebel has a great standby mode and will last for a few weeks on a charge. If you need a longer run time then you can purchase a battery grip that will more than double the time.

Here are some pics from my backyard using a DSLR and housing. http://www.jeffdale.com/backyardcritters

TRL,

Some neat photos in your gallery....I can't wait to get more DSLRs where I'm working at the moment. Photo quality is tops with the big cams and thanks for sharing.
