Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

today i just want to know if it is possible to reverse-engineer a camera, for example change it so that three photos are taken if i take a photo, or several photos with differing depths, stuff like that.

i know my way around assembler, and i think most cameras use an assembler dialect that is common. But my question is: how do i hook into the camera? how would you do this?

cheers
