    :idea: If you possibly know of someone that is familiar with digital
    video cameras that record on a memory chip, I need help finding how I
    can put a composite input on a Fisher CameraCorder. I wished the
    manufacturer put a composite video input on the camera, it would of
    made life easier. Basically, I'm a bit of a hacker, I like to make
    stuff do more than it was originally intended to do. Also, I need to
    add a switch to turn the LCD screen on and off while I am recording
    video. Sometimes it is not nessesary for the LCD screen to be on, it
    just robs me of extra battery
    power that I need for recording video. I would like to be able to
    record from other sources than just through the lens of the camera. I
    just want to make the camera more useful, plus some of the CCD
    elements are burning out in the camera. So being able to add a
    composite input breaths more life into this camera. Eventually, I
    will need to find a way to replace the CCD in the camera. While the
    "new" composite input is operational, I would like to shut power off
    from the CCD and the focus mechinisms of the camera through a switch.
    I know, I know, I want to much, right? I want to hear from people
    where to much isn't enough. That a challenge is the status quo. But
    to have someone point me in the right direction wouldn't hurt either.
    Thanks to all that can
