Television Camera Experiments
JFET input. PN photodiodes such as the popular "bullet cell" put out an extremely low-level signal. Yet photodiodes offer advantages over phototransistors. For example, more rapid response to motion. Also, some photodiodes have a peak response in the range of visible light. On the other hand, most phototransistors provide peak response in the...
Mini efficient coil launcher from disposable camera flash
This is a fun and non-dangeros project for those people who like to throw projectiles magnetically. It simply works by placing a ferromagnetic projectile at one end of a coil and pulsing some power in it. The trick is to switch off power when the projectile is at the middle of the coil, there are some ways to do it but it isn`t important now. The

5V Power Supply For On-Train Radio Camera
A radio camera on a model railway should transmit constantly while the train is moving and continue transmitting for a few minutes after the train stops. But if the train starts up again after a relatively long halt, imagery should be transmitted immediately. Consequently, the power source for the camera cannot be rechargeable batteries (since the
Beam-break Detector For Camera Shutter or Flash Control
This circuit is presented as an alternative to the IR beam break detector featured in the June 2009 issue (Silicon Chip). In order to make it relatively insensitive to ambient light, it uses a standard IR receiver IC such as the Jaycar ZD-1942. This has a high output (+5V) as long as a modulated beam is detected. The IR detector (IC3) controls an
Stereo Digital Camera Power-up Pulse Generator
Powering up my twin digital Sony DSC-V1 cameras at exactly the same time frequently synchronizes the cameras to a remarkable degree, within milliseconds. The cameras are powered up by twinned Sony wired remotes by shorting the ACC port LANC signal conductor with the ACC port ground. With experimentation, I find further that the synchronization...

Camera external shutter circuit 555 timer
Having wired the camera with external shutter leads I now needed a way to trip them. They needed to be tripped (i. e. connected together via a relay) at a regular interval, perhaps 2 seconds, starting at launch. I had read that a 555 timer chip configured as a multivibrator can work. I purchased Engineer`sas a timer. Mini-Notebook, 555 Timer...

The circuit described here uses ultrasonic oscillations and operates based on the propagation velocity of these oscillations in the air. Thus, we can easily determine the distance of two points if the time within which the wave travels this distance is measured. There are three main categories of distance measurement methods in use: a) By...

Sub-Harmonic Bass Converter for Electric Guitars
The sub-harmonic bass generator is a sound producing unit for guitars. The sound it produces looks very much like that of the bass guitar. The octave generator is sometimes quite unusual since it does not produce any of the usual ways of coloring the sound, such as filtering or distortion. Instead, a frequency division system produces outputs...
Echo Depth Sounding Sonar for Boats
In the past the sounding (sea bottom measurement) was done with the "bullet", that is, with a heavy lead object that the seamen plucked into the sea hung from a calibrated rope. As soon as the "bullet" reached the bottom, the depth appeared directly from the calibration of the rope. This arrangement still exists in some yachts. The big...
