That's not all. The hacker also managed to wire the controls (presumably via hardware) so the shutter button on the SLR would trigger the shutter on the compact. If that's not enough, a "popup" flash was also made to complement the contraption. Last but not least, the start-up screen on the point-and-shoot would display "AE-1 Program Digital." Geez! That's one heck of a hack.
I've been looking online for instructions on how to perform this hack, but I haven't had any luck. Any readers who can find the manual for this DIY, please share them below in TalkBack.
