For better or worse, I made the decision to jump right into soldering as my next step with my camera. I’d soldered before but never to such a great extent with an end goal in mind. I began by arranging the components with ease of access/sight of the buttons and screen. I then, very slowly/painfully set about soldering everything. After roughly 7 – 10 hours I’d soldered everything together.
While I waited for the Arducam camera to arrive I set about designing the user display/inputs. After a bunch of sketching, I narrowed my setup to include an 16×2 LCD screen and 4 input buttons. I also brainstormed the settings I wanted to control. You can see the setup in action below.
At some point several weeks ago I set about brainstorming what new project I wanted to work on. I scribbled out subjects I had experience with or wanted to learn about and I ended up drawing circles around programming, electronics, and photography as a good combination. I knew nothing of programming, just a little bit about electronics, and probably an unhealthy amount about photography.
I guess it’s time I add an awards section to my about me for all those awards I’m totally going to win (kidding). This photo, along with the two other photos shown below, will be hanging in Ula Cafe for the next month and then rotate through several restaurants over the coming months.
