The pins that the arrows are pointing to are for the power button on my camera. If I take a small piece of wire and touch the two leads (they seem microscopic), then the camera turns on and off. I need a way to short these leads out so I can control power to the camera.
- Can I solder straight onto the button, or do I have to scrape back a little bit of the orange plastic?
- Is a Raspberry Pi capable of performing this function? That way I can setup a cron job to turn this camera on and off.
This photo is magnified with a helping hand magnifying glass, it is a very small button.
