Has started with POC. Hardware part is almost done. Software part is going on. At the moment this project is kept on hold as I am not much into photography, so low priority.
As I started using my camera and I am taking my daughter’s photos I thought better resume this project, at least for remote trigger. Actually now a days I am not getting much time to do my projects so may be I end up buying RC-6 instead of doing this project. But as RC-6 does not support much functionality apart from remote triggering so better to resume this project. Let me see what I will end up with.
At last, after a long time, I got some free time to put hands on software part. It could successfully trigger my Canon camera. I have tried first only instant trigger. Yet to try 2-second delayed trigger.
I captured IR signals waveform using my DIY Logic Analyser.using TI Stellaris Launchpad.
