Birth of the Ultra Karma 40/60
Well, I finally got around to doing the final assembly on an Ultra
Karma...pretty much a case of putting my money where my mouth is. My
initial experimentations seemed to come together pretty well. Now that I
know where to Dremel and where not too, the next one will be a lot quicker.
Now all I have to do is sell them!

N.B. All the pics below can be clicked on to see a much bigger version
(oooo...I love that 8Mpix Cybershot!)
|1. The assembled Ultra internals (left) in
comparison to the stock Karma (right). Note the DC power jack on
the right for the external battery pack (Li-Ion/Li-Poly only). It
is epoxied onto the mainboard in a spot where there is a convenient
blank spot. It is almost like there was something meant to be
there. Even the case is already cut out there.
||2. Comparison of heights, Ultra on left and stock Karma on
right. The thinner (smaller capacity) battery partly makes up for
the thicker hard drive.
|3. Most of the Dremeling is on the back half of
the case. Here is a side-by-side showing what I carved away (Ultra
left, stock Karma right).
||4. Case together now. I had to carve the DC jack a bit
to conform to the rubber side piece. Note the textured black paint
job; this case was in pretty worn shape to begin with, but you'd never
|5. Quick shot of the back showing how the battery
fits into the carved out case.
||6. All but the front lens/bezel on now...See, it fits!
|7. Put her in the dock and fire up the flash
||8. Synched up and ready to go. Check out the MB free in
the bottom right...sweet!
