This may look like a duplicate post, but it's actually something different. This is a step that I sometimes skip, but usually like to do if I have the parts. It's basically a rough build where I can see what mistakes I'm making before I do the "final" build. I look at it as the breadboard prototype is sort of like an outline for a paper that you write. It gives you the basics. The prototype build is sort of a first draft. It is your paper, but it's nowhere near ready to turn in. And then the final build is the finished product...not to say that it still wouldn't be further improved and iterated on, but that's just where the analogy breaks down.
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.
