APCC DSLR Controller

APCC DSLR Controller

Technical description:APCC Photo Camera control

  • CPU 16Mhz Atmega 328
  • Display: 84x48 graphic LCD with backlight, Nokia 5110
  • Camera trigger: Infrared, wire (focus, shutter)
  • Flash Trigger: can control two flashes over sync & pc cords
  • Internal sensors: light sensor and sound sensor
  • External sensors: light trigger, sound trigger, laser trigger, etc
  • Digital sensors: 2x digital IN or 2 digital OUT
  • Time lapes function
  • Onboard RTC clock with DS1307 Real time clock
  • Onboard buzzer
  • Arduino based open surce, firmware upgragadable

Something about the platform we use it:

  • software: Arduino is an open source prototyping platform based on C and C+ programming language.
  • hardware: is based on atmega 328 chip, a 8 bit 16Mhz AVR microcontroller with 32KB flash memory, 1KB EEPROM and 2KB SRAM with max 23 I/O ports.

The APCC is a DSLR camera and a flash trigger. Camera can be triggered by infrared or wired.
It has sound and light sensor internally, so the camera or/and flash can be triggered by a balloon bursting or a lightning.
It has time lapse function. can make a picture every minute or a day, until a series of 999 pictures, or you can make long exposure photos.
Can connect external analog and digital sensors, eg motion sensor, photogate, etc.
Can make high speed flash synchronization up to 1 / 1000 (~80% succes).

This DSLR controller is excelent to make a long term time-lapse. But you will need an external power supply for the DSLR camera.
