Hi I'm new to the world of hacking, i have learnt a bit of coding before but want to learn some more.
I'm looking at doing a project with an arduino where I would be using speech recognition, probably the 'easy VR shield' to trigger the shutter of a DSLR camera. before buying equipment I wanted a bit of advise on what's the best way to go about this.
-Firstly is this possible, I think yes from seeing people control dslr's, but please stop me if im wrong.
-secondly which arduino would be the best for this, have been looking at one of the arduino MEGA's. any advise?
-thirdly would I be able to save the photos taken on a storage device connected to the arduino instead of in the camera, then say i might want to also show the picture on a screen after each is taken.
-another thing can you connect a higher quality microphone to the easy VR shield than the one provided?
many thanks for anybody's help!
