Introduction: APCC DSLR Controller

Picture of APCC DSLR Controller
Project info:

CPU Atmega 328P, Arduino
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.
Can make high speed flash synchronization (~80% succes)

Can't seem to compile this thing. Anyone been successful or have the hex file they can share?

Any chance you can sell me a ready made one :D

sorry no, actually i am out of this project
if you are interested to continue this project, make me an offer (device+software)

The link to the firmware is broken... Is there another place to download the firmware? thanks

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?

recwap (author)jdege2011-04-10

I finished an external sound sensor:

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