For a while i had this odd idea, of separating the lens sensor module from the camera body,
so i could have it inside the helmet front vent hole, and the main body on the back of the helmet.
So im thinking of splicing a longer cable in between. Since it ought to be shielded i thought that an unused IDE cable should be good enough.
Here is what inside:


The idea was to cut that blue bundle, and to splice the ide cable in.
So the question are
- Is the IDE cable a good choice, or i ought to used other cables.
- What are my chances for failure/success? The camera aint worth much anymore, but i dont really want to break it.
