He used the handle for power, while exposing the Pi's USB, network and video ports for easy on-camera access, and so far he's managed to transmit images via WiFi and ethernet. But the Raspbian Linux OS opens up a world of potential DIY accessories, like wireless tethered shooting (http://www.engadget.com/2012/01/12/nikon-d4-hands-on-video/) (with the addition of a WiFi dongle), cheap USB instant backup, storage, remote control (http://www.engadget.com/2012/04/30/triggertrap-remote-activated-dslr-iOS-app/) from anywhere in the world and an intervalometer (http://www.engadget.com/2012/01/03/insert-coin-timelapse-is-the-intervalometer-youve-been-waitin/) for timelapse photography. That's just for starters -- with the credit card sized board now in so many hands (http://www.engadget.com/2012/07/16/raspberry-pi-production-ramped-up-to-4-000-per-day-5mp-camera-m/), the permutations are endless (http://www.engadget.com/2012/08/13/adafruit-light-painting-raspberry-pi-guide/).
