Toucam LX mod in pictures

Not a tutorial as such but these pictures have been of help to lots of folk who have LX modded their own Toucams.
Took the pictures during various mods which I've done a lot of over the years.

The mod to this latest camera is very easy if you can use a soldering iron and lots of folk have been successful at doing
it even without an electronics back ground.
I wouldn't suggest doing a mod to the older Toucams as that really sorts the men from the boys.
It's do able but much more difficult with finer soldering problems.

Anyhoo, whether you fancy having a go at a spare camera or just want to see what's involved, have a look through the pictures.

This image is the complete mod showing what goes were and below is a link to various other mod pictures..
