This is a new build I did for a customer. Panny SZ9 hacked for day videos with dual mics for audio and night still photos with Vivitar 215 3v slave flash in an electrical box with cover. The slave flash is powered by 4 C cell batteries (I used a 4 bay holder that I modified to make 2 pair in parallel), 3 AA rechargeable batteries for camera externals that will be recharged by a 6v solar panel using a small solar charge control board and a barrel jack at the bottom of the case to plug the solar panel wiring into, Safari Camera Controller with Opto Backpacker and Flash Backpacker powered by 3 AAs, and a snorkel provided by ghosthunter all in a MCM 10" case with new rope seal and eye bolts for mounting the case.

Nice build Ralph. You did a good job keeping it neat with all the wiring you have to have in there. Solar Panel and recharging externals....now you've got me thinking :tinkin

Rick, I haven't tested the use of the solar panel for recharging the externals but according to the customer I did this build for, he has tested it and seems to be charging 3 AA batteries ok. Perhaps he will give us some feedback as to how it does when he gets some field testing in.

It's an awesome build Ralph ... That camera will be great I am sure. I like the mics positioned like that. Can't wait to see some results of this build.
