This project describes the way to take full control of the Gopro hero 4 silver. Similar hacks solder wires directly to the button rings, damaging the manual buttons functionality. So i figured other way to do it trying to preserve the camera integrity. My final intention is to control the camera via ethernet with an embedded linux board, and extend the power supply. In this way we can drive the camera using any microcontroller board, for robotics applications, without using the wifi Gopro’s functionality as well as the camera life via an external power supply.
Warning: This procedure nulled the camera warranty
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
