Hi ! My name is Alain, I'm 67 years old and living in Paris.
My hobbies are mainly Photografy and Video and my "target" is to built an automatic slider for panoramics. I rode you instructable which is very interesting but as my english and approch for electronic are very poor I'm lost.
I found 3 motors stepper in an old printer : 1 with 2 wires and the 2 others with 5.
What are the cards I need to make 1 or 2 of them turning. My goal is make the camera support go on and back, stop, etc ... I found so many different instructions or not totaly clear for me that I don't know which to adapte.
I would really appreciate your help in this matter.
Thanks you in advance and best regards.

It's hard to say without seeing them, but it sounds like you've got one regular DC motor and two stepper motors. For motor control I use Pololu.com. They sell stepper motor and regular motor drivers (the right cards) that are very well documented!
im seeing this now-- why cant you sell em? as an art peice? i dont think theres any copyright issue with an obvious novelty
Happy New Year! Thank you for following me :)
sorry i ment to say cool
sorry meant not ment
