Step 4: Taking out the circuit

Picture of Taking out the circuit

So you have the battery and capacitor discharged and ready to go, next thing is to remove the circuit from the camera, this is what you will use to charge the capacitor and all the essential works of the coil gun.

Safety tip chaps!!
After initially discharging the capacitor short the connections together to prevent the charge building up again, keep it this way until you are ready to connect it into your new circuit. Whilst this charge won't be as big as normal it can still come as a shock (pun intended) dependant on the Faradic value of the capacitor.
