This is the second out of automatic camera trigger with arduino. In this instructable I'm going to show you how to make a motion triggered camera. This project detects motion in front of the camera and triggers the servo to click a pic in the camera.
Like the prevous version this is powered with a arduino.

Step 1: PARTS

The parts are simple and easy to find
Motion sensor module

<p>where i get the motion sensor...help me...</p>
<p>Here is a better one, sound, light, laser, motion trigger, controlled wirelessly using your phone or tablet</p><p><a href="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/969220052/camsformer-high-speed-triggeringwireless-camera-co" rel="nofollow">https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/969220052/cam...</a></p>
<p>nice! this is a really cool project that I would do, but the problem I find is if you are trying to surprise them, or not let them know that your taking a picture, you have to leave the camera on, and it eventually runs out of battery : ( is there someway to plug it into the wall or something? if so, it would be awesome if you could make an instructable on it. </p>
Great project. Could you please add the connection to the Pir Sensor?
Thanks<br> Here check this out for Pir sensor&nbsp;<br> <a href="http://www.instructables.com/files/deriv/FE6/7L5W/GJQEHYRB/FE67L5WGJQEHYRB.LARGE.jpg" rel="nofollow">http://www.instructables.com/files/deriv/FE6/7L5W/GJQEHYRB/FE67L5WGJQEHYRB.LARGE.jpg</a><br>
<p>So this is the fritzing for the Ardunio correct? And what is the LED on said fritz needed for? Thanks</p>
That's awesome I might have to make this some day.
Wow that's a lot of microprocessor for that job, kinda like hiring a brain surgeon to paint your out house, I'm wondering if you could have eliminated the Arduino by just hooking up a small solenoid to the motion detector, the down side being the shutter would not release until the detector had gone low.<br>Looks like fun I never had an SLR with an auto winder so kudos to you
agreed! most [small] PIR modules only provide a 'weak' ON signal, but you could have the PIR drive a transistor which activates the solenoid/servo
