    1. Does the camera work?
    2. Do you have a way to test the USB port to see if it is still working. If it isn't, then my guess would be they replaced the USB out with the 5 pin connector.

    My only thought is that they used to to connect to a printer or monitor or something, but I can't imagine why they would go to that much trouble. Maybe they used them as security cameras if the D200 has that capability. I don't know.

    Let us know if you find out.
    Hello Dawg Pics,

    I found out today that the cameras indeed were used as traffic cameras for the AZDOT (Arizona dept of Trans.). I just got new batteries for them and will first see if they power on and then open one up and see how they were modified.

    Thanks for your input, very much appreciated.


    Just as a side note there were about 80 or so cameras auctioned off, ranging from D40 to a couple of D300s.

    So the cable probably supplyed power and tripped the shutter. Be interesting to see what the shutter count is.
