I've decided to make my CP as useful as possible, for whatever projects it might be used on. 

 

My camera has the video tap port on top, which I can't seem to remove as I think it's been painted on... 

Anyhow, I don't feel the video tap solution commercially available is worth the money, as I don't feel the camera system is worth more than the video tap would be (+$1500).  

 

My initial thought is to use a single board computer, such as a RasPi or oDroid and camera unit to relay a video signal - this could potentially be wireless with streaming over wifi.   I would much rather just use an HDMI to monitor, but the potential is there. 

 

3D print a housing for the camera to position it at the appropriate distance from the ground glass, and power it from the camera battery, with embedded software that just displays the camera.  

 

If I could find a SONY CCD module at a decent price (even black and white) I feel that could be used instead of worrying about an embedded system single board computer.  However those Sony cameras tend to be more expensive than the raspi/camera combo. 

 

 

That said, I'm game to create my own video tap solution but I wondered if anyone else had any thoughts?
