Photographers and electronic enthusiasts that would like to create their very own DSLR wireless camera controller may be interested in a detailed tutorial created and published to the Moving Electronics website. Checkout the video below to learn more about the project.
Lenin the creator explains more about the inspiration behind the wireless camera controller. “I’ve been experimenting with time-lapse shots for a while now. Unfortunately, time-lapse shooting options on most DSLR and mirrorless cameras are somewhat limited. At the time of this writing, Sony doesn’t even include the feature on their high end cameras by default (you need to buy an “App” and download it to the camera).
Some time ago, I posted the setup I had been using for shooting time-lapses using a Raspberry Pi, a portable battery and a USB cable. It got the job done, but using a Raspberry Pi as a time-lapse controller seems a bit overkill. I also wanted to get rid of the cables and the need for carrying around a big battery pack. Thus, I came up with this little device.”
The main objective of this project is to put together a device for controlling photo shooting sessions (i.e. time-lapse, timer, etc.) taken with a Sony A7II mirrorless camera. The device’s main features are:
– Portable device with embedded/internal battery.
– Wireless interaction with camera through infrared (IR). No USB cables or special adapters to deal with.
– Multiple time-lapse options controllable through a web interface.
– Timer capabilities.
– On-device screen showing current status.
– Capability of doing lightning detection/photography. Although fully functional, it’s currently an experimental feature.
– Magnetic attachment to metal surfaces.
– Tripod mount.
