Nokia N900 hacked into remotely controlling your Nikon DSLR

by 431 comments

If you were to name the device with the greatest hacker appeal that would of course be the Nokia N900. The latest portion of dark side programming that we stumbled upon enables the Maemo-powered device to act as a remote shutter for a Nikon DSLR camera.

In theory the widget that the guy from DoItDifferent created should also work with other IR-enabled Nikons so it’s not only the D40 owners (the camera used for the demo) that should celebrate the news. And to sweeten and officially seal the deal you can also make the N900 sync its IR wireless trigger and its LED flash for some creative lighting effects.

Check out this short video of the N900 and D40 in action:

by 316 comments

We finally made it to Barcelona and as you have noticed on our frontpage, we’ve been as busy as little bees collecting info about the latest upcoming phones from all camps. I brought along with me the Sony Ericsson Vivaz on this trip and I’ve been enjoying exploring some of its features.

The ease of use of the panorama mode impressed me most so here are several panoramas that I shot on the go with it:

I’m not saying the Vivaz pano mode is unmatched by any other mobile phone, it just happens that I have this one handy. I hope you enjoy the photos.
