Synchornized external falsh light for cheap Answered

Hi,

I am looking for someone who could do an synchonized flash light such as this one but for much cheaper ;-)
The challenge is on synchronizing the camera with the flashlight, if possible wireless.
The light itself and the diffuseur are no real topic.

The use of such devices helps a lot when taking pics for your I'bles or your ETSY shop if you have one.

Thx

B

Every half decent camera allows for the connection of an addition flash.
Either by top mount or by a headphone like plug.
All you need is to read the datasheet or technical specs (the detailed ones) for your camera.
If in doubt measure the impuls with an oscilloscope or very fast multimeter that has a lock function for the highest value recorded.
From there you only need a suitable transistor for the input and a suitable remote on the other end.
Options are endless from going overboard with a little arduino and WiFi or RF shield to simple with discreet components and a bit of wire.

By all accounts of what you posted, it is all over the map and much to vague. What's cheap to you? I ask as your request is all over the map. the D-Lite RX 2/4 is >$1250. If that is what you are using, you should be ok with a Pocket Wizard, recognized as an industry leader in remote/sync controls.

So... A flash? By do, do you mean make for you, or publish an Instructable?
