Insulated-gate, field-effect transistor (IGFET), Q2 and silicon photo cell Zl form the heart of this circuit. Transformer T1 is an audio-output type, but it"s reversed in the circuit. A sudden flash from a photoflash unit detected by Zl sends a voltage pulse through the low-impedance winding of Tl via Rl. That voltage pulse is stepped-up in Tl"s 500-!l, primary winding before being rectified...
Photo stop action
This circuit gives multiple "stop-action" photographic effects like showing a bouncing ball in up to nine locations in a single photograph. The circuit will automatically fire the bulbs sequentially with the time between each firing variable. The circuit is functionally complete except for the actual firing system. In many cases, a simple SCR will work, as shown. The firing can be initiated in...
Sound light-flash trigger
Sound input to the microphone triggers the IC monostable circuit which subsequently triggers an SCR, and hence the flash, after a time delay
This circuit is used for remote photographic flash units that flash at the~ame time as the flash attached to the camera. This circuit is designed to the trigger cord or hot shoe connection of a commercial portable flash unit and triggers the unit from the light produced by the light of the flash unit attached to the camera. This provides remoteoperation without the need for wires or cables...
Photo Strobe Circuit
Sound or light sensors corniected to J2 produce a voltage that is amplified by ICl-a and ICl-b. A positive trigger voltage that is developed by D1 and 1)3 and amplified by ICl-d, drives 1C2 and 1C1 to trigger SCR1. SCR1 is connected to a strobe.
Darkroom Timer Circuit
The electronic darkroom timer is built around a 555 oscillator/timer, a pair of general-purpose transistors, a buzzer, and an LED. The 555 (Ul) is configured as an astable multivibrator (free-running oscillator). The frequency of the oscillator is determined by the values through i3 and Cl through C4. Switch SI is used to divide the capacitor network to vary the time interval between beeps;...
Enlarging Light Meter Circuit
Meter Ml, a +/-50-uA zero-center D`Arsonval meter movement is driven by Ul, a TL081 FET op amp, through R3. The gain of Ul is set at 11 by Rl and R2, while capacitor 01 is used to restrict the bandwidth of Ul to 1.6 Hz. Power for the circuit is derived from a simple dual-polarity 12- V power supply (consisting of Tl, D3, D4, 02, and 03). A light-dependent resistor (LDR), R16 (which is a...

Enlarger Exposure Meter Circuit
Two gates of a 4011 arc used as a comparator. When the resistance of R4 decreases the voltage at pin 1 and 2 increases, producing a logic zero at pin 3, causing pin 4 to go high and activating the LED. R3 is calibrated in light units, or seconds exposure time. To calibrate, set pot R3 so as to just be on the LED ON/OFF threshold. With a light level that is suitable to correctly expose a...
Transistor Ql remains off until the magnetic switch connected to Jl closes. When that happens, the 9 Vis connected through Rl to Ql"S base. Ql turns on, thereby charging C2 through relay Kl, which causes Kl "s contacts to close. Since the contacts connect viaJ2 to the remote control jack in the camera, which in tum connects to the camera"s shutter release, the closure of Kl"s contacts will...
Sound activated strobe trip
Take strobe-flash pictures the instant a pin pricks a balloon, a hammer breaks a lamp bulb or a bullet leaves a gun. Use a transistor amplifier of 1-watt rating or less. (It must have an output transformer) The amplifier is terminated with a resistor on its highest output impedance, preferably 16 ohms

Photo Flash Slave Unit Circuit
Phototransistor Ql receives a light pulse from a photoflash unit. The pulse is ac-coupled to amplifier Q2. It then triggers SCR1,

Shutter speed tester combines frequency counter, crystal oscillator, and photo-transistor-operated gate generator. Oscillator pulses are counted as long as the shutter is open
One leg of the photocell (Rl) is tied to the +15 volt supply and the other end is connected to ground through resistor R2, forming a voltage-divider network. The non-inverting input of the 741 op amp, IC1, is tied to the junction formed by Rl and R2, while its inverting input is grounded through resistor R3. When switch SI is pressed, another divider network is formed, reducing the voltage...
Photo Strobe Slave Trigger Circuit
The photo strobe slave trigger circuit uses a solar cell and an SCR to flash any strobe when you trigger your master strobe.
The NE555 circuit is a basic one-shot timer with a relay connected between the output and ground. It is triggered with the normally open momentary contact switch, which when operated, grounds the trigger input at pin 2. This causes a high output to energize Kl which closes the normally open contacts in the lamp circuit. They remain closed during the timing interval, then open at time out....
This circuit will record commentary and/ or music on one track of a tape and put the beeps that change the slides on another track. Gate U2a is used to trigger U1, which is configured as a timer when a pulse is received from either the tape input or via pushbutton switch Sl. Timer U2 outputs one pulse for every input pulse received, no matter how long S1 is depressed. The Q output of U2 at...
The darkroom timer/controller uses few external components: a display, a digit driver, keyboard, and output switching devices. A 4-digit common-cathode LED display is desirable for dark room environments. The time base is provided by shaping up the 50/60 Hz ac line. A DPDT switch (Si) is used to select a resolution of or 1 seconds and to simultaneously move the decimal point

Automatic contrast meter
The circuit arrangement consists of a photo-amplifier which feeds a voltage derived from varying light levels in an enlarger to a pair of peak detectors. One follows the peak positive voltage and the other the peak negative voltage. The capacitors used for storing the voltage peaks in the followers also form part of sample and hold circuits which are then switched to hold after the measurement....

Transistor Ql is a light-activated silicon-controlled rectifier (LASCR). The gate is tripped by light entering a small iens built into the top cap.
