As usual, something I want to do, but not sure how to do it or if it can be done.
I want to record a timelapse of a 3D printer with a moving bed. FOr the timelpase to be effective, rather than just take a picture every x seconds, when the bed may be in a different physical position, i want to take a picture that includes a given time lapse but only triggers when the bed is in a particular place.
So, a timer using millis() which expires, then makes the camera "live" so that the next time after that time that the bed passes a certain point...it takes a photo.
I'm thinking a physical switch for the position might be the best idea...a contact that the bed closes as it passes over it. But I'm not sure how to get an Arduino to "talk" to a GoPro...wifi, maybe?
If anyone can point me to any libraries or anything like that I'd be grateful...there are a few threads on here about GoPro control but they all seem to involve physically busting into the GoPro...I'd rather not do that if possible.
And yes, I realise there are some commercially available products that do this...but y'know. Tinkering.
