If you happen to have another of the identical camera available I would like to see what that area of the camera looks like before your installation goes in and I would like to see the actual piece of hardware prior to it being installed.
You also might want to add a graphic title card or two in the middle of the video explaining what the purpose is... 24 FPS crystal sync speed.
I do have anothor camera so you can see, the hardware is a diffrent story! when i buy another encoder I will video tape the installation step by step
due to the low quality of youtube I can't see a lot. Maybe some stills and drawings explain it better.
Sounds interesting, maybe a better aproach than using the flashsyncoutput to read the actual speed of the camera...
Do you keep the origninal motor?
what electronics are used to read the rotors output and how do you control the speed of the motor afterwards?
do you place the electronics inside the 4008, or is it external?
How precise is the clock of your electronics?
Where do you get the rotory encoder? is it the same thing mechanical computer mouses use?
The motor is the factory motor, the baisc stamp is the computer with memory and it sends a wave to and from the motor controller, once its programmed on the chip the memory stays even with no power!
the encoder tells the motor controller the speed and the basic stamp maintains the speed in real time!
so this is 24 fps in real time not a tobin sync thats a stepper motor, the basic stamp is connected
to your computer via usb or serial port, you program it and the software checks things out for you! then you disconnect and it stays in memory! you can control anything from anywhere!
