The camera and the power supply for the enclosure have arrived! The power supply for the enclosure weighs a ton! It is about 3 inches square and it weighs about 4lbs. The camera with the cables attached is still just a little too wide… I took the wrist strap connector off the camera and that helped some and by putting the camera in at a very slight angle it will fit. Here are some pictures of the setup so far. All now that I am waiting for is the Raspberry Pi!
The bottom of the enclosure with the power supply. The other cable that is coming out of the enclosure is the power supply for the camera.
A close up of the enclosure power supply. It is very heavy!
The inside of the enclosure. Plenty of space to fit the Raspberry Pi!
I thought it would be time to add some photos of the equipment that I have so far. More photos to come as more of the pieces arrive…

View of the inside front of enclosure. The little silver thing with the wires coming out of the right side is the heater for the unit.
Inside back of enclosure. The fan will help cool the enclosure if need be, and the little circuit board controls both the fan and the heater. The black wires lead to the silver heater in the previous picture.
Some of the pieces that came with the enclosure. The round item on the left is for the power cables to go through the enclosure and still be waterproof. The rest of the pieces are for mounting.
This is the data cable. It has a USB connection (on the right) and the connection to insert into the camera (on the left).
This is the power cable that is used to power the camera. The end on the left is what plugs into the camera.
The good news is that the enclosure for my project arrived. However the bad news is that it is smaller than the product dimensions stated it was. So the problem now is that the camera will not fit into the enclosure with the data and power cord plugged in… It will just barely fit with nothing plugged into the camera. And I need permanent power to the camera, and I need a data cable plugged into the camera and these plugin on the side of the camera. Not sure how this will turn out….
Any tips on how to shorten the length of a camera?
