Hacking YN460 flash with Arduino

January 26th, 2012 § 3 comments

YN460 is a nice Chinese made flash for photography. The first hack is to enable controlling the power and flash trigger with Arduino. In the following video, the Arduino runs a 3 second step that trigger at its 7 power level.

Next step, adding network capacity to the flash and control it from iPhone!

    Thank you for the good writeup. It in fact used to be a entertainment account it. Look complex to far added agreeable from you! By the way, how could we keep up a correspondence?

    感谢您的工作,关于Hacking YN460 flash with Arduino项目 ,确切的问题:
    1、驱动YN460时,使用何种形式的引闪器,因为460本身不带PC接口,需要带PC接口的热靴驱动吧?比如海鸥的SC-2?
    2、 从arduino输出的信号,经过光隔,是否可以直接驱动引闪器,我看过一些资料,应该不可以。
    闪光灯在它的PC同步/热靴接口会有非常高的电压,请问在光藕之后,是否您还采用了某种更强的输出隔离(比如直流控制直流的固态继电器)?
    我手头的设备无法测算这个电压。所以希望得到您的帮助。

    第一个问题有些冒昧,且不够清晰,所以才再次打扰,如果可能,能否给我看看您的连接简图以及采用的元器件型号。我真的希望学习这个项目。
    关于延时我想可以在arduino中调整。所以最想了解的还是从arduino输出到驱动YN460这部分的细节。

    再次感谢。

    How did you control the YN460 ?
    Do you think this can be done using a smaller Atmel-board to integrate it into the housing?
    I’m working on a 3D printed alternative housing to include an RF flash trigger, power jack and an integrated umbrella-holder.

What's this?
