Introduction: APCC DSLR Controller

About: I have a background in telecommunication and digital electronics, and am very interested in computers and photography.
Project info:

84x48 graphic LCD with backlight
IR & Wire photo camera trigger
2x Wire Flash Trigger
onboard light/sound sensor or 2x external sensor
2x digital IN/OUT
timelapes function
onboard RTC clock
onboard buzzer
opensurce, firmware upgragade

The APCC is a camera and a flash trigger.
It has sound and light sensor internally. It has time lapse function.

    i Fix it!

    I was thinking about building something like this,. except I was going to include an area of breadboard, so I could integrate task-specific triggers.

    I think that two digital and two analog inputs are sufficient to any external trigger, now i am working in external sound, light and photogate trigger.

    Yes, but where do you build your external trigger?

    I finished an external sound sensor: http://apcc.tk/index.php/photo-galery/category/16-appc-sensors

    The power for the sensor is provided by the APPC, via 3.5 stereo jack (1pin gnd, 1pin 5v 1pin signal)
