DIY intervalometer for Sony NEX

Posted on Feb 6, 2014

A DIY intervalometer for my Sony NEX 5N camera so that I could do time-lapse photography. This intervalometer should work with most Sony cameras: NEX, Alpha and other. To work intervalometer used infrared LED Serial LCD has 4 output: GND, VCC, SDA, SCL. SDA (data) connect to Arduino Analog In 4, SCL (clock) connect to Analog In 5. Vcc connect to 5V Arduino, and GND connect to

GND Arduino. Circuit is powered by 9V battery. Battery positive output connected to the input Vin Arduino. Arduino has a built-5V voltage converter that we need to power the Serial LCD. The anode of the IR LED is connected through current limiting resistor and connected to 10-pin Arduino. Cathode of the IR LED connected to GND. // Article // Version 1. 0 #include "Wire. h" #include "LiquidCrystal_I2C. h" #define axis_X 0 // axis X of Joystic connected to Analog 0 #define axis_Y 1 // axis Y of Joystic connected to Analog 1 #define axis_Z 2 // axis-button Z of Joystic connected to Digital 2 #define pinIRLED 10 // IR LED #define LEDgreen 13 // onboard LED #define autoOFF 10 // autoOFF backlight LCD LiquidCrystal_I2C lcd(0x27, 16, 2); // set the LCD address to 0x27 for a 16 chars and 2 line display int value_X, value_Y, value_Z = 0; // axis values int pos = 0; // current position (0 - delay, 1 - work) int interval = 1; // pause between shots (sec) int cntPict = 0; // shots count boolean working = false; unsigned long currentTime; unsigned long TimeShot, TimeLCDOff; void setup() { pinMode(axis_Z, INPUT); // Joystic button pinMode(pinIRLED, OUTPUT); // IR LED lcd. init(); // init LCD lcd. backlight(); // turn LCD backlight ON lcd. clear(); // clear LCD show_menu(); // function show menu currentTime = millis(); TimeShot = currentTime; // shots timer TimeLCDOff = currentTime; // backlight timer //Serial. begin(115200); } void...
