One thing that I'm not terribly good at is soldering. I do it a lot, and I improve every time I work with it. At this point, I mostly work with through-hole soldering, since it's a lot easier to learn with...and easier to hook up without ordering custom PCBs.
Remember that Camera Light project I did back when? (And the actual prototyping, and the concept?) Yeah, I barely do, either. It was a while back. (We've had everything from family emergencies, to illness, to pesky day jobs keeping us hopping around here, with no free time. Yikes!) I did hear from a couple of people that the light had a serious problem, in that there was absolutely no need for a microcontroller.
Here, I'm going to step through the prototyping process of getting this to work. Step 1: The Power I like to set up the power component of my projects first, since if that doesn't work, I'm not going anywhere. Using PCBs with breadboards without soldering isn't all that friendly, but you can make it work… Continue reading Project: Camera Lighting – Prototyping
So, for those of you who have been following me since I started this last month (both of you), I'm getting ready to actually begin creating video content, as well as the occasional blog.
