FALCAO

Hello,

I want to know if is it possible to make a beep tone when light(flash) detected with arduino. how is the latency from the detection to beep tone?
Is it constant in order to measure it?
I don't want to connect with pc so i want to have an external power (ex.battery, Dc), i think that it isn't difficult, am i right?

Thank's for your time

It's very possible to do what you want, and it isn't very difficult. 

With regards to latency, the only delays will be the signal propagation down the wires and how many clock cycles your code requires to detect the flash and then output to a speaker.  Even with very inefficient code, their probably won't be a noticable delay (to human) between the detection and sound. 

You should start by looking the Playground's example code for light sensors and audio output devices.  If you want to do something else with the sketch while waiting for a flash, you should also read about interrupts in the Reference section of the main website.
