Flash Freeze Photography with an Arduino

Freeze moments in time to easily produce extraordinary close-up pictures with your digital camera, an Arduino, and these simple circuits. I have always been impressed by high-speed photography. The photographic capture of what normally goes unseen, or at least unnoticed, is intriguing and oftentimes beautiful. High-speed cameras, however, are expensive and beyond the reach of many of us. You can, however, g ...

High-speed Photography with Arduino and CHDK using arduino

This project uses an Arduino microcontroller and a laser break-beam trigger to fire via USB remote a Canon camera modified with CHDK (Canon Hack Development Kit) firmware. Immediate influences are the high-speed flash photography triggered by sound or light project by Glacial Wanderer and the Laser Triggered High-Speed Photography instructable by Saskview. The first uses a laser break-beam and an Arduino to ...

High Speed Outdoor Photography

High speed photography is generally carried out in a dark room with dedicated equipment (controlled remote flash for example)... The instructable proposed here enables to make high speed photography outside (and enjoy the sun!), in less than 2 hours with some generic DIY basic tools. The principle is the following : A marble is dropped in a repeatable way. During its fall, it gets in front of a distance sen ...

Arduino Flash Controller for Photography

Being a broke amateur photographer isn't easy. Film, chemicals and paper aren't cheap and a budget for some studio lights is non existant. So, I decided to, with the help of my trusty arduino, create my own sync controller to use with disposable camera flash circuits. By using a photoresistor the arduino can sense when the flash from your camera (master) is triggered and then trips the relay activating the ...

High Speed Photography

With this device you’ll be able to: take pictures from anything you can sense or detect: - movement - sound - … You don’t need to modify your camera or flash for this. It’s compatible with the old High Voltage flashes and the new TTL ones. Why I did this project? A friend of me who's really passionate about photography showed me some high speed photography examples. And how expensive the equipment you need ...
