There's an alternative firmware for Canon cameras which IIRC has motion detection/capture built in. All you need is a battery pack for the camera.

I think CHDK also had a script for that.

Motion capture on the camera. No microcontroller needed, just put Magic Lantern on your SD card, and you're good to go.

You'll need to use a micro controller between the sensor and camera. This way the micro controller reads the sensor and triggers the camera's remote shudder. You can find many instructables on how to build a remote for your camera's shudder. You can also find many motion sensor projects. All you need is to activate a relay that will trigger the camera shudder.

BTW, Caps=Yelling. Please don't yell at us.

please,give me the detail of the micro controller.thanks for tour reply
