Here is my first DSLR build I did with an Olympus E620. Case is a deep MCM tactical 10". When I bought the case I was going to use a USB cord that stuck out the back of the camera, which i needed a deeper case. Then i did the hack like i showed in another post. This case is huge and seems pretty well built. It has the Ralph's SMT board. No slave flash board needed. Using a wireless hot shoe transmitter on top of the camera. The receiver is hooked with a day night board and a Viv 2800. I just added the needed resistor to keep it from auto shutoff along with day/night board inline in the power supply. Only other thing I want to do is add externals which i've hacked for.

Heres my first decent picture with it. I'm still learning all the different settings with the DSLR. Also learning to play with a remote slave flash. I think i should move to a smaller area too, so I can get better focus on the animals. This is set to manual focus.

Nice job on the build Aaron. Judging from the downward angle it looks like you have the camera set up high, I like that. The slave is really lighting it up out there.

You need one of my new boards to control that wireless remote slave flash. It would save you a ton on batteries .
