Building a camera and screen

Hello there.

I'm starting up a rather ambitious project and thought I'd ask here for help, cos I can't do it alone!

Basically, I'm a keen player of Airsoft (like paintball - google it :) ), and want to mount a small camera on the front of my gun that is attached to a small (~1") LCD display mounted on the side of the gun for a live image feed.

This needs to run off a small power supply that is portable and long lasting, but considered the fact that camera already run off a couple of AAs, that shouldn't be hard!

The particular gun I'll be modding will be an airsoft P90, made by Tokyo Marui (again, google if for pics etc).

I have an old (working!) Fuji A202 digital camera I'm willing to cannibalise for parts.

Any help would be awesome, as this is the most ambitious project that I have ever done!

Thanks very much, Adam :)

Adam, a bullet cam and a portable video player/recorder might be an easier way to go. The bullet cam is already shaped into a cylinder and can be easily attached to the gun barrel using something as crude as duct tape.

Before you attempt to do this, you might want to see how useful your Fuji A202 is in the field. I suspect the A202 might not zoom far enough for your purpose. Try taping it to the gun and see. If it works to your liking, then move forward with your plan.
