Camera Flash Delay
Features and specifications
- Stereo Camera flash delay fires a flash initiated via Shutter release signal (SONY multiport pin 4)
- Variable flash Delay time from 0 to 51ms (for SONY A5100 is approximately 21-23mS)
- Ability to fire different technology flashes units (using alternate optocouplers and interfaces)
- Flash works satisfactorily at sync speed 1/160second
- Powered by 3volt 2032 button battery
- Battery life is about 40hours (with average current consumption of 5-6mA)
- Delay time accuracy as power is depleted from battery is about -0.3mS (from 3V to 2V)
- Activity LED to confirm microcontroller is running
1. Check your flash’s trigger voltage
before connecting to the Stereo Camera Flash Delay. Ensure that the
hardware variant for your flash is suitable.
2. Connect the Stereo Camera Flash Delay to the Shutter release signal of the cameras.
3. Connect the flash unit
4. Upon power on, the activity LED operates initially for 1.5 seconds and then flashes every 5 seconds.
5. Adjust the potentiometer to about half way position. Take a shot.
Turn potentiometer anti-clockwise until both left and right frames are
fully exposed by the flash.
6. After use, switch the power off to conserve the battery life.
- If the flash is not firing, first check the activity LED to check if processor still running
- If the activity LED is not working check power switch and battery.
- If the activity LED is working, you may have to replace the optocoupler.
- Do not interchange different flash types if using the 4N25/28 transistor optocoupler.
- Older film era flashes with a high or reverse voltage will destroy the optocoupler.
