- Cover (optional)
Note: Read optocoupler disclaimer below
The uStepper Ego Shield S lets you control a single uStepper S/S-lite using pushbuttons while reading out information on a super sharp OLED display!
A super easy Arduino Library for Ego Shield S gives you the possibility for recording sequences with your uStepper S/S-lite controlled stepper motor, playing them, manually control the stepper or even do your own timelapse photography setup. Chosing the kit with optocoupler and 2.5mm Jack makes it possible for uStepper S/S-lite to coordinate position, timing and your camera shutter.
The Optocoupler output is isolated from uStepper S/S-lite GND and supply. Be sure to wire your camera correctly to the optocoupler. uStepper ApS can not be held responsible for damage on camera or accessories - use at your own risk.
To make it more customizable, the 2.5mm jack is NOT solered to the opto pins "e" and "c", soldering two wires is required (see pictures for "e" and "c" location).
If you intend to make a camera slider, then have a look at this awesome Instructable, showing you how to make a time lapse camera rail.
To complete a camera slider you will need the OLED with optocoupler and jack and the following:
- 1 x uStepper S/S-lite
- 1 x Slider kit (Open Builds) like THIS
- 1 x 2.5mm jack cable to your camera interface port
- 1 x Tripod for the rail (may require custom mount)
- 1 x Camera mount
- 1 x 12V lipo and charger, for use without range of wall adapter
