i bought a funduino package and started the tutorials.
But there is a project, which I want to pursue and I havent found too much guidance on how I could design the setup for a Photo Booth with remote-control button and timer.
Maybe, you guys can comment on my setup:
I have a Sony Alpha camera and I want to put the camera into a photobooth. I want to have a button (see picture attached, basically a foot & palm switch like this http://a.co/8KxdoRA ) that one can hit and a picture will be taken. Ideally, there is a two second delay and there is a screen with a countdown close to the camera lens in the photobooth.
Here are my open questions:
- where would I put the arduino? In the button to use an IR controler to run the camera? Or close to the camera (where I could put the countdown display as well)
- Do I need an arduino at all? At least for the two second timer countdown, right?
- can i link the button (see electronics in the picture) to a IR remote control? http://a.co/8L70k2U
- are there other ways to link to button and have the 2 second countdown visible?
Thank you so much for your help!
