Intervaluino, time-lapse lovers tool

Davide GombaMay 6th, 2010

If you have to chance to test it, give it a try. One of the most useful uses of arduino turning a common camera in a cinema tool.

I call it Intervaluino, and it does exactly what I want him to do: Tell my Canon EOS 400D to take pictures at regular intervals. Wanna build one yourself? Please follow me.

you’llĀ  need:

  • 1 Arduino (I used the Diecimila model) –
  • 3x 100 ohm resistors
  • 1x 10k ohm resistor
  • 2 x 5V reed relays (NO = normally open)
  • 1 x push button of your choosing
  • 1 x 2.5mm male stereo jack
  • 1 x 80 x 50 mm strip board
    (alternatively: bread board or Arduino protoshield)
  • Assorted wires
  • Arduino USB cable
  • Arduino AC adapter OR Arduino 9V battery pack
  • Basic electronic tools to cut and de-isolate wires and to solder components (if you use a strip board), maybe a multimeter to test connections
  • A nice box
  • 20 cm of thin steel cable (used as a loop to attach the Intervaluino to the tripod)
