Make A Smartphone Camera Remote Controller Using Arduino
Control your camera with your Smartphone and Arduino. via instructables
Ever wanted to wirelessly control your camera? Perhaps you have an upcoming event that needs a photobooth, or maybe you just want to spy on your cat while you’re at work. (You knew those goldfish weren’t just disappearing…) This project will show you how to control certain features of a Canon camera through WiFi with the help of an Arduino and your smartphone! You won’t even need any advanced coding skills–this Instructable makes use of several nifty hacks to make the process as streamlined as possible.
Before continuing on, make sure you have Java and the Arduino software environment already installed on your computer. For this project, I will be using a Windows computer.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
