I’ve been working overtime on my DIY Wifi Remote Shutter Release (DIYWIFIRSR) lately because I want to use my DSLR to shoot a few 3D print time-lapse videos.
I love my Pentax K5 DSLR, but it doesn’t have any WiFi built-in, which makes it difficult to trigger it in unison with a 3D printer.
What does a geek with too much time on his hands do in such a situation? Naturally, I built a microprocessor-controlled remote WiFi shutter trigger for my DSLR so that it can be focused and fired by my computer, my phone or even my Raspberry Pi (running OctoPrint and OctoLapse).
You can build one for your own DSLR too! Soon, I’ll be posting the complete schematics and source code so you can build one all your own. I would love to hear about it!
I’ll have much more to say about that in the coming days. However, here’s one of the earliest videos from the process.
I hope you enjoy my 1st time-lapse of a 3D print. Leave me your comments and let me know what model you would like to see printed!
