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
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
