Looks good! Crazy motor setup! What software are you using? And what hardware do you use to trigger it?

Thanks :)

 

in the video i use IC Capture 2.3 you can download it here

http://www.theimagin...port/downloads/

 

software called FireCapture works to you can download it here

http://firecapture.wonderplanets.de/

 

in IC Capture 2.3 and FireCapture you have the option to enable trigger mode

 

the hardware and trigger

i use a hall sensor and i have a magnet glued inside the projector on the wheel so every time the wheel rotate and comes near the hall sensor it output 5v to the camera trigger

 

here is a picture of the wheel and hall sensor

here you can see the whole trigger cabel with hall sensor

here is a better picture of the hall sensor

here is the wiring diagram to build the trigger and i did copy it from here http://www.cine2digits.co.uk/

So cool! Thanks for posting all the pictures. I was using a physical lever switch to trigger my scanner before, but I was planning to try out a light sensor with laser or led setup for the next version. The hall sensor is cool though, I might have to think about that.

i have seen this video that they use laser sensor called sensopart PS-L4 i think

 

 

 

i did see in some other picture he have placed the laser sensor diagonally i guess it´s because for example let's say if you look out of a window and you stand much more on the other side of the window then the window is not so wide anymore :)

so i guess it get´s more accurate for the sensor to detect sprocket hole if the laser sensor hits the sprocket hole diagonally

Yeah, the Muller was pretty much my inspiration from the beginning; the thing's a work of art! So that's why the laser was in my head. I got this of Amazon for $8 the other day, so I'll give that a shot. I'm not exactly sure if I'll use a laser and shoot it through a perf, or just mount it behind the shutter to let me know when the shutter's clear. I'll see once my new projector gets here. Fun to play with though!

i have been thinking my self to buy a Arduino or Raspberry Pi and a stepper motor and see how it all works

the light sensor you did link was compatible with arduino :)

That's exactly what I did. Arduino+stepper motor. The arduino is so cool. Now I have it running the motor, the LEDs, the trigger, etc. I definitely encourage you to get one. And I had never used one before or programmed anything like that before, so its definitely doable. And it was actually a lot of fun and really rewarding getting that thing working.

Lots of things are described as "compatible with arduino" - all that really means is that it's a 5V logic device.
