The Lil Bang (Sound Trigger for Cameras)


The design Viktor came up with has the following features:

  •     Controlled by a PIC micro (PIC16F886).
  •     Adjustable sensitivity
  •     Adjustable delay – i.e. the user can set how many milliseconds after the sound event the picture should be taken. (My uncle says it would be a lot better if there was a setting to define how much BEFORE the event it should trigger the camera – but that’s another project – for my Nobel prize later this year…J)
  •     Operated from battery and/or external power brick.
  •     Completely decoupled from the camera by opto couplers, so that no harm can be caused by the circuit to the camera.
  •     Can be used with any camera that has a remote control input (direct, IR or otherwise).
  •     Can also be used to trigger any other electronic device, e.g. flash
