SHAPING LIGHT ELECTRONICALLY WITH A SMARTLENS

A team of researchers reports on a dynamically tuneable lens capable of achieving almost any complex optical function. Camera performance on mobile devices has proven to be one of the features that most end-users aim for. The importance of optical image quality improvement, and the trend to have thinner and thinner smartphones have pushed manufactures …

COD (Camera on Deck) – Motion Time Lapse

INTRODUCTION Hi. I’ve built this little device for my HNC project back in the old days (2015). Because I like photography, and my task was to make something using microcontrollers. I’ve made this little device using Arduino UNO, as this was an ideal board for this job (and cheapest). There were quite a few similar …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …
