    I'm trying to add FPV functionality to a point and shoot camera and wanted to use the 8-wire, flat plug that plugs into the Zenmuse. To do this, I would need to have another 8-wire female end and know which wires are for the video feed. From there, I can run wires into my mini-USB cable that goes into my camera. I have already successfully tested a live view from my camera to the FPV Tx, and I can splice into the video feed there, but I figured that this would allow me to avoid making another splice at the TX and make use of the dangling Zenmuse male end. I wouldn't do anything with the other 6 wires coming out, I would only need the 2 video feed wires for FPV from the point and shoot.

    Has anyone tried this? Does anyone know the name/style of the plug? Figuring out the video wires should be somewhat easy, if they're not already known.

    Thanks for any help!

    I'm not convinced I've understood what you want to do exactly but would one of these help?: http://download.dji-innovations.com/dow ... 1.0_en.pdf

    It comes with a range of pre-wired connectors and you might be able to mod something in the pack or even use the hub itself.

    Pull_Up, thanks for the document, that could lead to what I need.

    Here's a simple and crude idea of what I want to achieve. http://i.imgur.com/b7WXtXK.jpg
    I'd like an 8-pin female connector so that I can feed it video from my point and shoot, kind of how the GoPro gets its feeds, but without all of the gimbal control and power supply wires. Option 2 is to just make a 3-way splice into the video feed going into the TX, but that is less desirable.

    Thanks!

    Here is a diagram that I made up for someone else. This included installing the EZ OSD module, which I recommend. It's a great $60 investment!!!
