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.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
