  1. I'm back on my feet ! Thanks for the idea Helge, do you have any exemple that you shot with your Nizo and the PWM Impulse WSFG-06 i can look at ? I like how the idea is simple and elegant. How does the pre-recording actually work ? Doesn't it make it hard to sync with the footage in post ?
  2. Hello everyone, I am home processing 16mm, mostly Fomapan R100, and i am also home brewing my chemistery (hardening bath, bleach, clearing, developper is a photo paper one) : Sulfuric Acid, Potassium Permanganate, Potassium Alun, Sodium hexametaphosphate, Sodium Bisulphate and Sodium Metabisulphite. I use caoutchouc gloves (the pink kind you use for house cleaning) and safety goggle. My question is more about the mask and filter, i use this mask : https://www.cazabox.com/47353-demi-masque-a-filtre-nu-avec-soupape-d-expiration-sup-air.html and those filters : https://www.cazabox.com/7160-galette-filtrante-ammoniac-en14387-vendu-par-2-sup-air.html. What are your opinions/gear ? Thanks, Jeremy
  3. Thank you Helge, i'm discovering your solution, i'll look into it ! Sorry for the late reaction...
  4. Hello everyone ! I was on a trip but now i'm back at it. I will carefully read ad try to understand Phil and Aapo post. I've just ordered the Arduino Nano 33 IdO and an Arduino Uno kit !
  5. Thank you for the informations ! So i guess this one will do the job : https://www.distrelec.ch/en/arduino-nano-33-iot-arduino-abx00027/p/30150883?no-cache=true&marketingPopup=false&queryFromSuggest=true I did some arduino based project... but i was more on the cutting/screwing/assembling parts side. I am aware of the code side, so i'll put my mind at it, and if you can help a bit i'll be thankfull ! I'm also sourcing materials and arduino for an other project, a telecinema based on Denis Carl (http://www.deniscarl.com/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=start) opensource telecinema and on a version done by a friend. So, i have no choice but to put myself into coding !
  6. That would have been my choice if i wanted to shoot fiction, but i'm looking to shoot documentary, so i can't clap before/after a shoot in those conditions...
  7. Thank you, so if you both think it is still doable, i'm going to get in it. As i don't know where to start, wich arduino card should i use in your opinion ?
  8. Thank you for your expertise ! My Zoom H4n do take remote control 2.5mm input, but i have doubt it'll work by plugin it in directly. Also i wanted to stop both recording simultaneously.
  9. Thanks, i am not sure i get what it means... The pins are connected mechanically at the moment i trigger the camera ?
  10. Hello everybody ! Sorry for the silence, i was looking to put my hand on a multimeter to test the socket on the camera ! So, i know the socket work because i plugged a flash in and it worked : So, to go further in this little project, i just had to mesure the electric power on the flash cord plugged in the socket according to Phil Rhodes, we need to know if it is a a short impulse or a continuous delivery. Here is the multimeter, i put it on 200V AC: here is the cord : It got me and absolute ZERO : So i guess, my question is : What am i doing wrong ?
  11. The H4n do have a remote input as there is a remote available : https://zoomcorp.com/en/gb/accessories/power-accessories/rc4/ It may be a 3.5mm, but if needed, an adapter 3.5mm to 2.5mm should do it.
  12. Allright, i going to try your option, it seems it can be done relatively quickly and it would give me what i need (start and stop the audio recording according to the camera) I do not know if it is just a closing contact... how can i know that ? Plug a cable, make the camera run and use a multimeter to see if there is short hight tension or a continuous one ? For the cable, i may have an old canon synchroflash cable with 2.5mm on one end. Otherwise, here are some options : https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1332403-REG/pluto_pc_cable_flash_pc_sync_cable.html https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1015044-REG/nero_trigger_cable_flash_cable_for_flash_units.html https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1494317-REG/tentacle_sync_c20_gh5s_tentacle_to_flash.html https://www.missnumerique.com/miops-smart-cable-de-declenchement-pc-sync-pour-flash-p-29013.html And for the H4n side that is less simple, where should i start ? As the previous board is sold out, would this one https://store.arduino.cc/collections/boards/products/arduino-nano-rp2040-connect (also a 3,3v) do it ? I still aim to shoot remotely in the wil, so this mean the board would take it's power from the camera ? From what i understand from the GitHub page, the only thing i need beside the arduino board are the cables ? Many thanks ! Jeremy
  13. Well, it is said in the user guide that the flash socket can be used to trigger sound recording, so it was intended in the camera engineering (here on page 28 https://www.manualslib.com/manual/553933/Canon-Zoom-Ds-8.html?page=28#manual). Also, it is true there is a single frame releases possible, the socket is clearly described as a "tape recorder starting socket" (page 3 of the manual). I think you can use it to trigger flash when you do single frame release, and there is also a special socket for "single frame release socket", it is nowhere said in the manual that you can trigger flash, i am just guessing from the socket. On my 814 XL-R there is this possibility, so i assumed it is the same on the DS-8. But it seems i was wrong.
